When an employee has been terminated, you need to let the ATO know about the employee's end date and that you won't be sending any more payroll information for them.

Let's take you through it.


1. Process all final pays and ETP (if required)

This is the same process whether you're using Single Touch Payroll reporting or not. See Processing a final pay for details.

2. Notify the ATO

As part of your Single Touch Payroll reporting, you need to notify the ATO of the termination. This lets the ATO know the employee's termination date and any ETP components in their final pay.

Here's how:

  1. Go to the Payroll menu and choose Payroll reporting.
  2. Click Employment terminations.
  3. Select the employee, choose the Employee End Date, then click Notify the ATO.

  4. Enter your name as the authorised declarer and click Send.

This declaration is processed in the same way other Single Touch Payroll reports are. They must be accepted by the ATO, which can take up to 72 hours.

3. Finalise the employee

This step lets the ATO know that you won't be paying the employee again this payroll year. You can finalise the terminated employee now, or when you complete your STP finalisation at the end of the payroll year.

For all the details, see End of year finalisation with Single Touch Payroll reporting.
