What is Single Touch Payroll?
Single Touch Payroll is a new, simpler way to report your employees’

As a result of Single Touch Payroll, businesses will no longer be required to complete payment summaries at the end of the financial year as it will have already been done and available to employees through myGov. You will report your employees’ payroll information directly to the ATO from your payroll solution.
What do I need to do?
This new reporting method is now mandatory for businesses with 20 or more employees. You would have needed to conduct a headcount of your employees back on 1 April 2018. If your business needs to be STP compliant and you aren't yet using an MYOB product, ask your vendor what steps they are taking to update your product. If you're using a MYOB product, see the need more help section below.

MYOB AccountRight Classic users should upgrade to AccountRight 2018.2
to be STP compliant. The good news is that clients on 2018.2 don’t
need to move online. While STP will be supported in AccountRight
2018.2 for both cloud and desktop modes, we recommend taking advantage
of the cloud services available in online mode (invoice tracking,
smart bills, online payments, bill attachment, multi user and the
ability to work from multiple locations).
AccountRight Classic customers who use multi-currency or any other
AccountRight Classic feature that prevents them from moving to
AccountRight 2018.2 will have a deferral in place until 31 May 2019.
