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 add the user to your online company file. If your file isn't online, the user will need an MYOB account, so contact us and we'll help you set them up. Once added, they need to sign in to your company file and follow these steps:
The following steps need to be completed by the new declarer.
- Sign in to your company file.
- Go to the Payroll command centre and click Payroll Reporting.
Click Payroll Reporting Centre.
If this button says Connect to ATO, the company file hasn't been set up for Single Touch Payroll. See Connect to the ATO for all the details.
If prompted, sign in to your MYOB account. The Set up Payroll reporting: Connect to ATO window appears.If the Payroll Reporting window is displayed, it means you're signed in to AccountRight as a user who's already added as a declarer.
- At the Overview step, click Start.
Select your role:Someone from the business
A Tax / BAS Agent
Select Someone from the business.
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.
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.
- Click Save to finish.
Tax and BAS agents will need to provide their Agent ABN and Registered agent number.
Select A Tax Agent or A BAS Agent
- 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.
You’ll need to enter your own details here, signed into MYOB as yourself. You cannot complete this on behalf of your client.
When you've notified click I’ve notified the ATO. When prompted, confirm by clicking I've notified the ATO again.
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.
