Payment summaries: Payment summary fields

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 Payment Summary Fields step of the Payment Summary Assistant is where you link the payroll categories you’ve set up and used in AccountRight with the fields found on the ATO’s payment summary forms.

This is a complex area, and the following information is just a guide. Please see the ATO guidelines for more information.

Once you've set up all the fields, you need to report employer superannuation .
