Employers urged to act now for Single Touch Payroll

Single Touch Payroll will be introduced from 1 July 2018, requiring employers to report their employee’s tax and super information to the ATO through Single Touch Payroll approved software.

Employers will report each time they pay their employees, i.e., weekly, fortnightly or monthly. The information that will be reported includes withholding amounts, superannuation liability information or ordinary times earnings (OTE) and salary, wages, allowances and deductions.

Employers with 19 or less employees have until 1 July 2019 to prepare, however they can start reporting as soon as their software is updated.
