What is Single Touch Payroll?

It's the best way to stay on the ATO's good side, that's what. Single Touch Payroll (STP) is a new, simpler way to report your employees’ payroll information to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) and keep your business compliant.

Single Touch Payroll will be required for all employers by 1st July 2019 - but don't worry, MYOB makes it as easy as possible by automatically reporting to the ATO with our payroll software.

With STP, employers no longer need to complete payments summaries and group certificates at the end of the financial year. That's now taken care of every time you pay your employees as their tax and super information is sent to the ATO and available to them through myGov. 

With MYOB software your STP reports are sent directly to the ATO, you won't need to complete payment summaries or group certificates. That's now all taken care of in myGov.

How does Single Touch Payroll work?

As your run your regular payroll, your tax and super details are sent from your accounting software to the ATO automatically.

  • Pay your employees as normal (weekly, fortnightly or monthly) and give them a payslip. 
  • Your STP-enabled payroll software sends a report directly to the ATO which includes required information such as salaries and wages, PAYG withholding and super
  • This is the only Single Touch Payroll checklist you need but if you need more information, check the ATO's website.
