Ramco Single Touch Payroll (STP)

Ramco’s Seamless Integration with Single Touch Payroll

Single Touch Payroll (STP) is an Australian government initiative through the ATO, designed to streamline administration reporting obligations and will alter the way employers report their tax and superannuation for their employees.

  • Single Touch Payroll becomes mandatory for all businesses who employ 20 or more staff on 1 July 2018.
  • Subject to legislation being passed in parliament, businesses with less than 20 employers will need to become compliant by 1 July 2019.

Ramco Systems have been developing the Australian compliance packs and direct integrations in consultation with ATO.  HCM and Payroll modules for our existing and new customers will be fully STP compliant with the ATO and ready to report from Day 1.
