Meeting your obligations as an employer can be incredibly daunting especially with the introduction of Single Touch Payroll (STP). STP means employers will now share information with ATO on-or-before payments are made to employees, but your local TaxAssist Accountant is fully aware of the changes and uses ATO-approved, STP-compliant payroll software.
If you employ someone and pay them you will need to register as an employer, and then do the following:
- Provide the employee with a Tax file number declaration (NAT 3092)
- Complete Section B of your employee's Tax file number declaration
- Register for PAYG witholding
- Forward the completed original of the Tax file number declaration to the ATO within 14 days of the employees' start date
- Keep the necessary PAYG witholding records
