A declarer is someone who can send your business's payroll information to the ATO after each pay run. This might be a payroll officer or a tax or BAS agent.

Whoever set up Single Touch Payroll (STP) for your business will be able to send payroll information to the ATO, but additional people who need to send payroll information must add themselves as declarers.
