July 2019 Newsletter

WELCOME

Welcome to our July 2019 edition of the StewartBrown newsletter. We hope to keep you informed of the important tax developments and issues affecting businesses in Australia today.

Single Touch Payroll (“STP”)

What is STP?
In summary, STP is a Government initiative to simplify business reporting obligations relating to payroll. Essentially all employers will be required to report payroll information to the ATO at the time of payment. STP will also streamline processes including tax file number declarations, Super Choice forms and notifications to super funds and government agencies.

When and who does it apply to?
From 1 July 2019, STP relates to all employers however depending on your circumstances there may be some concessions or exclusions available.

What to do?
After you’ve spoken to your StewartBrown Manager or Partner you will either need to set up, upgrade or implement an STP compliant solution. We urge you to consult with us to assist with the process, in particular when processing annual Income Statements and Finalisation Declarations.

This special edition of our newsletter is to remind you of your 2019 financial year employer obligations and provide you with an update on employment matters:-

IMPORTANT CONSIDERATIONS

1. SINGLE TOUCH PAYROLL ("STP")

STP is a Government initiative to further simplify business reporting obligations. It is a mandatory reporting requirement for employers and will require employers to report payments such as salaries and wages, pay as you go (PAYG) withholding and superannuation information to the Australian Taxation Office (“ATO”) directly from their payroll systems at the same time employees are paid. It will eventually apply to every payroll system in Australia.
