What happens after I've set up Single Touch Payroll reporting?
Once you're set up, your payroll information will be automatically sent to the ATO the next time you process payroll.
You'll know you're set up when you see the following message in the Pay Period window (Payroll > Process Payroll).
When you click Record to record a pay run, you'll be prompted to declare and submit the information to the ATO. You'll only be able to do this if you've completed the Connect to the ATO steps.
If you started reporting before 1 July 2018 you'll still need to use the Payment Summary Assistant to produce payment summaries and send the Payment Summary Annual Report to the ATO (via the EMPDUPE file).
