After working closely with the ATO over the last eight months, we’re pleased to announce that we have passed the last hurdle and have achieved whitelisting for Single Touch Payroll.  What this means is that we have successfully passed Single Touch Payroll (STP) lodgements to ATO production systems and ATO have verified that the messages conform to their standards and that the information contained in the messages is as expected. 

It’s been a long journey to get to this point, and we’re excited that we are ready to take part in one of the most significant changes to the way that PAYG and super information is reported in Australian history. Single Touch Payroll is the ATO initiative in which PAYG and super guarantee information will be submitted electronically to the ATO each time employees are paid is due to commence for employers of 20 or more employees from 1 July.
