Single Touch Payroll (STP) requires employers to send the ATO payroll information with each pay-run rather than in a summary at year end.  For employers with 20 or more employees it has been in place since 1 July 2018.  With legislation before parliament, which is expected to be passed shortly, this will extend to all employers from 1 July 2019.

There are four RAP types Reflect, Innovate, Stretch and Elevate.

Single Touch Payroll (STP) starts from 1 July 2018 for employers with 20 or more employees and will be expanded to include employers with 19 or less employees from 1 July 2019.   STP will require employers to report salary and wages, allowances, deductions, tax and superannuation to the ATO each time you pay employees in line with your current pay cycle.   

Employers will require STP ready software and those with STP compliant software can choose to report before 1 July 2019.  Most employers will find that commonly available commercial software solutions will be compliant however we recommend that you check with your provider to ensure your software is ready by the relevant start date.
