If you've been using Single Touch Payroll reporting, your end-of-year is now a lot easier.

In most cases, you won't need to prepare payment summaries. Instead, you 'finalise' your Single Touch Payroll information directly from AccountRight.

When you finalise, the status of the employee's income statement in myGov will change to Tax ready. This means they'll be able to pre-fill and lodge their tax return. Check with the ATO on the due date for making this finalisation declaration.

Finalisation — Declaration the employer has provided all information for an employee for the financial year. (ATO definition)

More from the ATO can be found here: Finalising your Single Touch Payroll data
