streamlining super reporting


Single Touch Payroll — streamlining the way employers report tax and super 

The Australian Tax Office (ATO) will introduce changes from 1 July this year to streamline the way employers report some tax and super information.

Super contributions will be automatically reported to the ATO directly from an employer’s payroll software at the same time as employees' wages are processed.

The ATO is working with payroll software providers to ensure their products will allow employers to report through Single Touch Payroll.

From 1 July 2017, the changes are on an opt-in basis and do not become compulsory for some employers until 1 July 2018.
