Single Touch Payroll or also known as STP or one touch payroll will be mandatory for all businesses in Australia from 1 July 2019.
Small businesses only employing family members have a 12 month extension until 1 July 2020.
Otherwise all other businesses in Australia will need to be ready by 1 July 2019. So please don’t leave this until the last minute.
STP requires businesses to electronically report to the ATO on or before each pay cycle wages, allowances, super and PAYG withheld paid.
A side benefit is that once STP is set up there is no need to issue PAYG Payment Summaries any more. If you set up STP prior to 30 June 2019, your employees will access their 2019 PAYG Payment Summaries in their MyGov account.
