STP is a change to the way you report your employees' tax and super information to the ATO, and is done each time you pay your employees.
STP starts from July 1st for employers with 19 or less employees.
You can start reporting any time from July 1st to September 30th 2019. You can apply for a later start date if you need more time to get ready. Please call our office if you're having any trouble, we can apply for an extension on your behalf.
As your registered tax professionals, we can also report for you through STP.
Employers with 20 or more employees needed to start reporting through STP from July 1st 2018, unless covered by a deferral.
