Single Touch Payroll (STP) aligns your reporting obligations to your payroll processing. Starting from the 1st of July 2018, all businesses with 20 or more employees will be required to report to the ATO each time they pay their employees. The information they report will include employees' salaries and wages, allowances, deductions (for example, workplace giving), pay as you go (PAYG) withholding and superannuation information.
