What is Single Touch Payroll?

Single Touch Payroll (STP) is a payroll reporting system introduced by the Australian government to streamline and simplify the way employers report their employees’ tax and superannuation information to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO).

Under STP, employers are required to report payroll information to the ATO each time they pay their employees, including salaries and wages, superannuation contributions, and PAYG withholding. This information is sent electronically through an STP-enabled software or service, such as SmartPayroll Australia.

How does it work?

  • When you complete your payroll process, your employee’s PAYG withholding and super guarantee information will be sent to the ATO at the same time, saving the time and hassle of having to submit the exact same information for both pay and reporting.
  • When you pay your employees’ super guarantee contributions to the funds, the exact same details will be sent to the ATO for your super reporting requirements.
  • The entire pay and reporting process will be completed within your payroll software solution, saving you the hassle of working across multiple platforms.
