STP approved software used by designers & creatives

Payroller is approved for Single Touch Payroll (STP) reporting by the Australian Tax Office (ATO).  Designers across Australia love using Payroller because it’s simple and meets legal requirements.  

Our easy-to-use cloud payroll solution is low-cost and secure.  With Payroller, your payroll, employee, staff scheduling and timesheet data is in one spot and synced in the cloud across all of your devices.   The best part of using Payroller is that you don’t need to be an accounting or numbers expert to do payroll yourself.


Payroller is an STP-enabled software that automatically submits payroll information to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) – through a secure cloud network – whenever you perform a payrun. Payroller helps you to track, manage and record your payroll while safely sharing that information (and staying compliant) with the ATO.

As a truly one-stop payroll solution, you can manage staff roster, invite your accountant, bookkeeper or BAS agent and even make Super contribution (Beam) on Payroller.

Absolutely, you may share your account and even set different access permissions.

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.

Find out more with our guide to Single Touch Payroll (STP) Phase 2.

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.
