Frequently Asked Questions about STP

Here are some of frequently asked questions small business owners are asking about Single Touch Payroll (STP), which we hope will support you in your journey to understanding everything about STP.

What is Single Touch Payroll (STP) software?

Single Touch Payroll (STP) is a new way for small business owners that employ staff to process payroll and report tax and superannuation information back to the Australian Taxation Department (ATO). The ATO requires small business owners report the following employee information before or on each pay day:

  • Salaries, wages, and any other payments made to employees
  • Pay as you go (PAYG) withholding
  • Superannuation information
Please note that payments made to employers will not change. The only thing changing is how you report this information to the ATO.
Is Easy Payslip STP Phase 2 compliant?


All payruns created from 1st July 2023 onwards will be submitted to the ATO using STP Phase 2, so we are fully compliant with the latest ATO requirements.

How easy is it to process payroll and STP?

As an employer, a good Single Touch Payroll software system will make all aspects of processing payroll for your small business easier. Single Touch Payroll software enables you to process payroll functions such as creating and emailing payslips, and tracking employee superannuation and entitlements, quickly and easily.

Single Touch Payroll software in Australia allows you to easily report payroll payments and other required information, such as PAYG withholding tax and superannuation information, directly to the ATO, ensuring your business remains STP compliant.

Employees benefit from Single Touch Payroll software by having payslips sent to them immediately once they’re paid, and having clear visibility as to how their pay was calculated. The payslip will also display leave balances, superannuation deductions and any other entitlements, making it easy for the employee to keep track of all pay-related matters.

When will small business owners need to be STP compliant?

All STP-reporting exemptions have now ended - if you have employees, you must now report through STP.

How often do I need to report payroll information to the ATO?

Employers are required to report payroll information to the ATO on or before each day their employees are paid i.e. every pay day.

How does STP affect employees?

Employees are not affected by STP. Payslips through Easy Payslip can be easily emailed to them by their employer through the mobile or desktop app. If you are an employee concerned about receiving your payslip, please get in touch with your employer.
