Single Touch Payroll for Employees

Single Touch Payroll benefits you as an Employee

If your employer reports to the ATO through Single Touch Payroll, you will be able to see more up-to-date tax and super information online through myGov after 1 July 2018.


MyGov is a fast, simple way to access government services online.


When you link your myGov account to the ATO, you can manage your tax and super in one place.


Single Touch Payroll means your employer is able to report to the ATO when they pay you. The information is sent to the ATO directly from their payroll solution.


It may take some time before you see all the information that will be available. Only employers with 20 or more employees are required to start reporting through Single Touch Payroll from 1 July 2018. Employers with 19 or less employees will start reporting using Single Touch Payroll from 1 July 2019.


You will be able to see your year-to-date pay, the tax that has been withheld from your pay as well as the super contributions your employer is liable to make for your benefit throughout the year.


When you start a new job, you may have the option to electronically complete a pre-filled tax file number declaration and superannuation standard choice form using our online services.


You can use our online services anytime to access a range of tax and super services, lodge your tax return and keep track of your super.
