Payroll for sole traders

Sole traders in Australia can self-manage payroll with the easiest single touch payroll (STP) system for self-employed people.


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.

Only a few minutes. The majority of our customers get up and running within 15 minutes. If you do need more help in getting set up, simply reach out to our capable live agents and they will have you using Payroller like a seasoned user in no time. Check out our handy user guides.

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 about our Single Touch Payroll software.

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.
