Who needs to complete these steps?

Only the person setting up Single Touch Payroll will need to connect to the ATO for STP.

Additional users will need to add themselves as declarers before they can send payroll information to the ATO. They can do this when they go to Payroll > Payroll Reporting after you have connected to the ATO.
