The STP module is enabled at an entity level. As some entities may not be required to submit pay event data through STP, this functionality will need to be set for each individual entity and will not automatically be turned on.
To turn on STP for your entity:
Go to Config > Company Management > select the entity > Payroll.
Scroll to the Single Touch Payroll section.
Tick the ‘Enable Single Touch Payroll for this Entity’ checkbox.
Once STP is enabled in an entity, it cannot be disabled. The checkbox will be greyed out and can’t be deselected.
Pay event files will generate for any pay runs with a Pay Date that falls on or after the date that you enable STP in your entity, for you to send to the ATO.
Report Data for a Previous Payroll System
If you're bringing in previous earnings that have been reported to the ATO through STP using another payroll system, these earnings will need to be added as YTD Balances for your employees.
To identify the previous system that was used, you'll need to provide the Business Management Software Identifier and the Previous System Payroll ID for all impacted employees, approvers, and administrators in your portal.
