Single Touch Payroll Consultation

Single Touch Payroll is a government initiative to streamline business reporting obligations.

Employers will be able to report salary or wages, pay as you go (PAYG) withholding and super information to us from their payroll solution, at the same time they pay their employees. There will also be more options for completing tax and super forms online.

Employers with 20 or more employees must start reporting through Single Touch Payroll from 1 July 2018.

Consultation enables us to co-design and collaborate with you in developing and delivering Single Touch Payroll.

We use a variety of formats for consultation including working groups, advisory groups and forums. These include:
