Single Touch Payroll – what you need to do

From 1 July 2018, if you have 20 or more employees, you’ll need to use Single Touch Payroll-enabled software to report your tax and super information to us.

This means that you need to do a headcount of the number of employees on 1 April 2018, if it is 20 or more employees then you are required to use Single Touch Payroll from 1 July 2018.
