Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)


Single Touch Payroll (STP) is an Australian Taxation Office (ATO) compliance regulation that requires every employer to upload their employees’ payroll information to the ATO during each payroll cycle, regardless of whether you pay them weekly, fortnightly or monthly.

One of the main benefits of STP is that it helps employers to streamline their reporting process to the ATO. Since information will be already provided after each pay cycle, the ATO will pre-fill PAYG sections of the business activity statement (BAS) on behalf of the employer which will eliminate the risk of errors and double handling. Further, new employees can also lodge their Tax File Number Declaration and Super Choice Forms through STP software.

STP exemption are applicable to a particular financial year or certain types of employers. Small employers having a withholding payer number (WPN) are also exempted from STP reporting for financial years 2018–19 to 2021–22. All remaining ABN holders with employees on the payroll have to report through single touch payroll software.

As per the Australian Taxation Office (ATO), STP is a mandatory obligation that all employers have to adhere to. Please discuss you circumstances with the ATO if you think you may qualify for an exemption.

STP reporting started on 1 July 2018 for employers with 20 or more employees and 1 July 2019 for employers with 19 or fewer employees. After 1 July 2021, all types of employers and businesses holding an ABN will have to report the payroll information through ATO approved Single Touch Payroll software such as ClockOn.
