What is Single Touch Payroll? 

Single Touch Payroll is an ATO requirement which will change the way you report payroll payments, including:

  • salaries and wages
  • pay as you go (PAYG) withholding
  • superannuation information

It’ll simplify your ATO reporting because you’ll be able to do it directly from your payroll software at the same time as you pay your employees. 

This means you’ll be able to meet your ATO reporting obligations at the same time you pay your employees, instead of running a separate process.

It will also make EOFY a breeze because you’ve already reported your payroll activity throughout the payroll year.

What do I need to do?

We'll be releasing an AccountEdge update in early 2019 to enable Single Touch Payroll. So watch this space...

When it's released, the updated AccountEdge will guide you through the setup for Single Touch Payroll reporting.

You can start getting ready now by ensuring your company, payroll and employee information is complete and up to date. This includes checking that each employee has a valid name, address and Tax File Number.


We have worked with the ATO and if you're using AccountEdge you have been granted a deferral from Single Touch Payroll reporting until 31/05/2019.

Deferral numbers were communicated by email. Keep the number handy in case the ATO get in touch with you about your STP deferral. However, you’re not required to proactively contact the ATO. If you need any assistance in finding the deferral number, please contact MYOB support via Live Chat or by calling 1300 555 123.
