Single Touch Payroll (STP) was introduced by the Australian Government in July 2019.  Single Touch Payroll simplifies employee payroll reporting to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO).  STP reporting requirements are mandatory for all employers in Australia. All employers must upload payroll information to the ATO using an approved software provider.  Failure to comply with STP laws may result in penalties or fines.

All small businesses with employees must use ATO-approved STP software like Payroller. To comply with STP reporting requirements, small businesses must register their chosen STP software that is approved by the ATO. 

Failure to comply with STP laws may result in penalties or fines.

Phase 2 of Single Touch Payroll (STP) is an extension of the STP reporting system. STP 2 changes for all employers came into effect on 1 July 2022.Under STP phase 2, employers need to report extra payroll information. Read our detailed overview of STP Phase 2 changes

Payroller is STP 2 compliant payroll software that helps employers adapt to STP 2 changes with minimal disruption.

STP online software sends your employee and payroll information direct to the Australian Tax Office (ATO).  This includes wages, PAYG withholding taxes and superannuation for your small business’ employees.  

Each time you finalise pay runs for STP in Payroller software, a STP declaration is sent in real-time to the ATO.  This includes filing STP for finalising end-of-year reporting (EOFY).  The STP process eliminates manual reporting and reduces the risk of error for small businesses in Australia

Under Single Touch Payroll (STP) reporting, you don’t need to provide group certificates and PAYG summaries to employees. Instead, employers must submit end-of-financial-year (EOFY) STP reporting to the ATO at 30 June year-end.


Once this is done, your employees can view their up-to-date wages, PAYG withholding tax and superannuation information in their myGov account.  Employees without a myGov account can request a group certificate or PAYG summary direct from the ATO.
