ATO Webinar: Single Touch Payroll

March 1, 2019


The ATO is hosting a webcast on Tuesday 5 March at 11.00am for small business employers and their registered agents.


It will include information on the options for helping smaller employers transition to Single Touch Payroll.


You can register for the event here.

All businesses with 19 or fewer employees will need to comply from 1 July 2019. Those with 20 or more employees should have commenced reporting through Single Touch Payroll from 1 July 2018.


Remember, you need to include the following employees in your headcount:

  • full time employees

  • part time employees

  • casual employees who are on your payroll on 1 April and worked any time during March

  • employees based overseas

  • any employee absent or on leave (paid or unpaid)

  • seasonal employees (staff who are engaged short term to meet a regular peak workload, for example, harvest workers).


Do not include any employees who ceased work before 1 April, casual employees who did not work in March, independent contractors, staff provided by a third party labour hire organisation, company directors, office holders or religious practitioners.

You can read the ATO's factsheet here.
