Single Touch Payroll (STP) Have you missed the deadline?


If you missed the 30 September Single Touch Payroll (STP) reporting date, it’s not too late! Make the move and get started by following one of three pathways: 

Start reporting now  
If you already use accounting or payroll software, you need to check whether it offers STP reporting. If it does, you need to enable the STP function and start reporting straight away. If you’re looking for software or need to upgrade, we have a list of providers that offer STP reporting products. 

Apply for a reporting concession  
Depending on your circumstances you may be eligible for a reporting concession. This means you may be able to report less often (usually quarterly) if you meet certain criteria. 

Ask for more time  
If you’re not ready to report through STP, or you can’t because of your location and access to services, you can ask us for more time by applying for a deferral or exemption. 
 
Whichever option you choose will depend on your circumstances but it’s important to engage with the ATO as soon as possible.
