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:
Ready to get started?
To start reporting your payroll information via STP from 1 July, we recommend finishing your last pays for June and preparing your payment summaries. Once that's out of the way, you're ready to set up STP for the new payroll year.
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.
What you need to do
- Check company and employee details meet ATO requirements.
- Assign ATO reporting categories to your payroll categories.
- Connect to the ATO to allow payroll info to be submitted.
If you pay employees on multiple company files, you need to follow these steps to set up STP for each file.

What happens after I'm set up for STP?
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.
