KEEPING UP TO DATE
No-cost and low-cost single touch payroll solutions
25 May 2023
In a Micro business every dollar counts, and time is money as the saying goes.
So at this time of year when there are extra administration and governance burdens on business owners, it is important to save time and effort where you can.
The ATO has put together a no-cost and low-cost Single Touch Payroll (STP) product register to help micro employers (those with one to four employees) who need to report through STP more effectively.
Any product on this list must:
- be affordable (costing less than $10 per month)
- take only minutes to complete each pay period
- not require the employer to maintain the software.
Remember that if you start using one product and discover it doesn’t fit your business needs, you may change to another solution. But make sure you don’t end up paying twice because of a contractual arrangement.
Please be aware that we are sharing to make Micro Business owner’s life easier but do not use or endorse these products internally in our own business as we have outgrown them. We encourage you to contact the company directly with questions.
