03 Jun STP exemptions and deferrals – ATO reminders
With reported unpreparedness for Single Touch Payroll (STP), mainly among small businesses, and with employers having less than 19 employees needing to report their employees’ tax and super information through STP from 1 July 2019, the ATO has reminded businesses about the STP exemptions and deferrals that are available.
There are exemptions for reporting through STP for a particular financial year, for certain payments, or for certain employees.
If you need any assistance or guidance on whether your business is Single Touch Payroll compliant, please contact us.
Where there are extenuating circumstances that impact an employer’s ability to regularly report on or before pay day (eg regular intermittent internet connectivity issues that result in the ATO receiving its report a couple of days after pay day), they can apply for a recurring deferral.
