Reminder: All employers must be using STP by 1 July 2019!

Single Touch Payroll (STP) is the direct reporting of salary and wages, PAYG withholding and superannuation contribution information to the ATO.

Businesses with more than 20 employees were required to start using the system last year, and now employers with less than 20 employees need to be set up and running by 1 July 2019.

set up STP!

Who is exempt?

Exemptions apply to "closely held payees" for the first financial year. Closely held payees are directly related to the entity, such as family members of a family business, directors of a company and shareholders or beneficiaries.
If you own a micro-business, or your business is in an area with no viable internet connection, then exemptions may also apply.
