Single Touch Payroll (STP) is an ATO initiative to streamline payroll reporting. You’ll be able to report payroll and super information directly to the ATO when you process a pay run in MYOB Essentials.

As a result of this change, you may no longer need to complete payment summaries at the end of the financial year as your employees' payroll information will be available to them through the government's online service, myGov.

You can report Single Touch Payroll amounts to the ATO directly from MYOB Essentials.
