How will Sage be enabling your STP compliance?

22 November 2017

Although the ATO has not yet finalised its requirements of payroll software vendors, Sage has been a member of the Single Touch Payroll developer working group since the beginning.

We are now in a position to start preparing you for the transition.

  • In December 2017, we will announce guiding notes, and an optional support service where we can come in and make your payroll solution configuration more efficient for STP.
  • In January 2018, contingent upon the ATO finalising its requirements, we will have another optional service to help you understand how the final solution works.
  • In February 2018, we will host our annual Sage Payroll Customer Conferences in multiple cities, where we will have both ATO and Sage subject matter experts speaking on STP.
  • In March 2018, well in advance of the ATO’s 1 July cutover date, Sage will be releasing the STP-enabled upgrades to your payroll solution.

We will communicate with you on these support activities as and when they are available.
