Single Touch Payroll – where are the advisors?

29 March 2018Accountants & Advisors, Payroll, Single Touch Payroll

Alarmingly only 5% of advisors have raised Single Touch Payroll with their clients. Medium businesses in particular rely on their accountant or business advisor to keep them on top of compliance requirements.

Only 5% of advisors have raised STP with their clients

That’s the alarming statistic from Attaché’s Single Touch Payroll (STP) presentations to over 150 companies.

We are now less than three months until STP becomes law for businesses with 20 or more employees. These medium businesses in particular rely on their accountant or business advisor to keep them on top of compliance requirements.

The most common reasons as to why it hasn’t been raised include:

  • Mistaken belief that STP is for payroll software providers and the ATO to resolve
  • Not realising STP is compliance
  • Not having heard of STP
  • Banking on the compliance date being pushed out like we saw with SuperStream.
