Single Touch Payroll (STP) is a mandatory Australian Taxation Office (ATO) initiative to reduce employers’ reporting obligations to government agencies. By using Payroller, it eliminates the need for manual reporting to the relevant government agencies, keeps your business compliant and streamlines all your payroll processes – error-free.

Find out more with our guide to Single Touch Payroll.

STP Phase 2 is the expansion of the ATO’s Single Touch Payroll reporting. Under these changes, you will no longer need to manually report information about your employees to multiple government agencies. If you are an existing Payroller user, you would have received instructions on how to transfer over to STP Phase 2. (If you did not, please contact our live agents to assist you.)

If you are a new user, your Payroller account will automatically be set on STP Phase 2 and all payruns will already be converted to the new reporting format.

As the ATO continuously refines how STP will adapt to employers’ needs – you can rest assured that Payroller will remain STP-compliant with current and new requirements by the ATO.
