Single Touch Payroll

Single Touch Payroll (STP) is a new Government initiative aimed at streamlining business payroll reporting obligations. It is now a lawful obligation, and is legislated to commence for businesses with more than 20 employees from 1 July 2018.

STP will revolutionise the way employers report payroll information to the ATO. As a business you will be in charge of reporting all payments, including salaries, wages, PAYG, superannuation and withholding information directly to STP, at the same time as paying your employees.

Careful Books is here to help get your business ready for this new, exciting step in business accounting. Contact us for further information on STP - we have an experienced team waiting for your call!
