Single Touch Payroll (STP) is a simple way to report your employees’ payroll information to the ATO and keep your business compliant. Tell me more about STP.
AccountRight helps you get STP ready—here's what's involved:
You'll need an internet connection to complete the setup, but your company file doesn't need to be online.
To get started, go to the Payroll command centre and click Payroll Reporting.
If you pay employees on multiple company files, you need to follow these steps to set up STP for each file.
You'll need an MYOB subscription for each file you want set up – to purchase additional subscriptions, please Live Chat with our support team.
Get your employees to set up a myGov account so they can access their year-to-date payroll info and end of year summary.
You'll know you're set up when you see the following message in the Pay Period window when you start a pay run (Payroll > Process Payroll).
If the "Payroll reporting ready to go" message doesn't appear, your company file isn't set up for STP. See above for details on getting set up.
When you set up your payroll, you'll enter your employees' pay history (the amounts you've already paid them) for the current payroll year.
Then, after you've set up STP and you record the first pay in AccountRight, your employees' year-to-date payroll totals will be sent to the ATO.
You'll continue processing your pays as normal, but after each pay run you'll be prompted to send the info to the ATO.
If this message doesn't appear after the pay run, your company file isn't set up for STP. See above for details on getting set up.
