What is Single Touch Payroll?

Single Touch Payroll is a new way of reporting payroll information (payroll, tax, superannuation) to the Australian Tax Office. Businesses used to report this information to the ATO only once a year.

Now, every business is required to send a report after every pay day. And those reports must be submitted using a solution that is ‘Single Touch Payroll’ compliant, such as specific payroll or accounting software.

With Single Touch Payroll, the payment summary annual report and the payment summary will go away; Giving you easy access o staff leave,
