Single Touch Payroll – how it will work

From July 1st 2018 employers with 20 or more employees will have to change the way they report their PAYG and Superannuation for employees.

It means employers will report payments such as salaries and wages, pay as you go (PAYG) withholding and super information to the ATO directly from their payroll solution at the same time they pay their employees.

Employers may need to update their payroll solutions to report through Single Touch Payroll.

For employers with 20 or more employees, Single Touch Payroll reporting starts from 1 July 2018.

The Australian Government has announced it will expand Single Touch Payroll to include employers with 19 or less employees from 1 July 2019. This will be subject to legislation being passed in parliament.
