Single Touch Payroll - Reckon Accounts

Single Touch Payroll (STP) is the ATO’s latest compliance regulation that requires employers to send employee payroll information including salary, wages, PAYG withholding and superannuation to the ATO at the same time as their standard pay run.


The introduction of Single Touch Payroll in July 2018 was a significant change that required many employers (with 20 or more employees) to upgrade or replace their payroll system in order to meet their payroll reporting obligations. As of July 1, 2019 STP will be mandatory for all businesses with employees. 


To prepare for STP first see our Step by Step Guide.
