What is Single Touch Payroll (STP)?
How QuickBooks can help with STP compliance?
When does Single Touch Payroll start?
Single Touch Payroll is here now. If you manage payroll for your business or a client, you will need to comply before your next pay run.
Once you're set up, every pay run you report will comply with the ATO legislation. If you think you have missed the STP compliance cut-off, talk to your accountant or bookkeeper about Single Touch Payroll.
According to the ATO, small employers with 19 or less employees need to now report their employees’ payroll information through Single Touch Payroll.
Micro employers with less than 4 employees can report through their registered tax or BAS agent on a quarterly basis.
Large employers with 20 or more employees should be reporting through Single Touch Payroll already.
How do I get ready for Single Touch Payroll?
If you're a QuickBooks user, you're in good hands. Our integrated payroll solution has been ATO compliant and Single Touch Payroll ready for some time.
