MYOB Essentials, Australia only

Once you've set up Single Touch Payroll, additional people who process your payroll will need to add themselves as declarers. This might be someone in your business or a tax or BAS agent. Once they're added, they'll be able to send payroll information to the ATO.

Before they can do this, make sure you've added the person to your MYOB Essentials business. Once added, they need to sign in to MYOB Essentials and follow these steps:

 

To add a declarer for Single Touch Payroll reporting

The following steps need to be completed by the new declarer.

  1. Sign in to MYOB Essentials.
  2. Go to the Payroll menu and choose Payroll Reporting. You'll be prompted to set up payroll reporting.
  3. At the Overview step, click Start.

  4. Select your role:


    Someone from the business
    1. Select Someone from the business.

    2. Click Continue.

    3. If prompted, at the Declaration information step, enter the company’s ABN and your personal details. This is sent to the ATO with the payroll information. Then click Continue.

    4. At the Notify the ATO step, click I’ve notified the ATO. When prompted, confirm by clicking I've notified the ATO again. 

      Only one person from the business needs to notify the ATO. If your company is already using STP, additional declarers don't need to do this step.
    5. Click Save to finish.
    A Tax / BAS Agent

    Tax and BAS agents will need to provide their Agent ABN and Registered agent number.

    1. Select A Tax Agent or A BAS Agent

    2. Click Continue.

    3. If prompted, at the Declaration information step, enter the company’s ABN and your personal details. This is sent to the ATO with the payroll information. Then click Continue.
    4. Notify the ATO you're using MYOB for Single Touch Payroll reporting.

      You’ll need to enter your own details here, signed into MYOB as yourself. You cannot complete this on behalf of your client.

    5. When you've notified click I’ve notified the ATO. When prompted, confirm by clicking I've notified the ATO again.

    6. Click Save to finish.

You're now able to submit information to the ATO after a pay run. Find out what happens after I've set up Single Touch Payroll.
