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 simplifies your ATO reporting because you can do it directly from your payroll software at the same time as you pay your employees. 

This means you can meet your ATO reporting obligations at the same time you pay your employees, instead of running a separate process.

Learn more about your Single Touch Payroll obligations on the ATO website.
