Payment summaries: Company information

AccountRight Plus and Premier, Australia only

If you're registered for Single Touch Payroll (STP), there's no need to prepare payment summaries so we've removed that option from the Payroll command centre. If an employee needs a copy of their income statement (payment summary), they can access these details through myGov. Visit the ATO for more information.

Stay compliant by using the latest AccountRight version, and see how we've simplifed your end of payroll year.

If you're registered for STP but you need to complete a payment summary (confirm with the ATO if you're not sure), you'll need to complete a manual payment summary for the employee using forms available from the ATO.

The Company Information step of the Payment Summary Assistant is where you let the ATO know what your contact details are. If they need to ask questions about what you submit, they’ll contact you using the details you enter here. Some of this information will also appear on the payment summaries.

Most of the information is filled in for you, based on what you’ve entered in the Company Information window (Setup menu), but you can enter different details if required.

Will a third party lodge the payment summaries for you? Will you be lodging the payment summaries on behalf of another business?

The ATO may need to contact the party that actually lodges the payment summaries. Click the I use a third party service provider to lodge my payment summaries option in this step of the assistant and then enter the service provider details.

Next steps

If you'll be lodging the payment summaries for your own business, your next step is to set up the payment summary fields.

If a third party service provider is lodging the payment summaries, first enter the service provider contact details.
