The ATO are changing the way employers will report their payroll information to the ATO from 1 July 2018.
Who does it affect
Employers with 20 or more employees as at 1 April 2018, will need to start using Single Touch Payroll (STP) enabled software from 1 July 2018. If you have 19 or less employees, STP reporting will be optional until 1 July 2019 and will then become mandatory from that date.
Use of Payroll Software
If you currently use a payroll software provider and are unsure if they will be STP ready, we have provided links to the most commonly used payroll providers below to assist.
- how your provider will offer STP reporting services, for example through your existing software or an additional service.
- check if your software provider has a deferred start date.
- if your software will be ready, but you won’t, you will need to apply to the ATO for a deferred start date.

The ATO have also provided a checklist to ensure you ready for the STP start date. Please click the following link for more details ATO Checklist
