Wondering how to get STP ready?
If you are using Xero:

1.     In the Payroll menu, select Pay employees

2.     In the message about Changes to the way you report payroll information to the ATO, click Get started. If you don’t want to opt in right now, close the message by clicking Remind me later. To reopen the message, click Setup Single Touch Payroll.

3.     Click Opt in to confirm.

4.     Review your organisation details. If necessary, click Update Organisation details. Xero will redirect you to the Organisation details page. Otherwise, click Continue.

5.     To connect your Xero account to the ATO, call the ATO on 1300 852 232.

6.     Provide the ATO with the proof of ownership listed in Xero’s prompt, including your Australian Business Number (ABN) and Software ID (SSID).

7.     Select the checkbox to confirm you've contacted the ATO to connect your Xero account.

8.     Click Register.

Xero will redirect you back to the Pay employees page. You’ll now see an STP filing column in the Pay Run History table.
