What is Single Touch Payroll?

STP is a government initiative to streamline business reporting obligations. Employers or their intermediary will be able to report payments such as salaries and wages, pay as you go (PAYG) withholding and super information directly to the ATO from their payroll solution, at the same time they pay their employees. Entire Software is to provide STP through SBR2 – ebMS3. Employers with 20 or more employees will need to report through STP from 1 July 2018 under the law.
