Single Touch Payroll successfully lodged since 1st July 2018

Single Touch Payroll successfully lodged since 1 July 2018
Four of our SapphireOne testimonial clients, Newkem Australia, Monier Prime Rooftiles, Frutex Australia and Moyle Bendale Timber have processed payruns this week and successfully lodged their first Single Touch Payroll (STP) event for the current financial year. Numerous other clients have also successfully lodged their first STP event with the Australian Taxation Office within the first week of its operation.

The Australian Tax Office has made it mandatory for any business operating with a staff capacity of 20 or more employees to implement a working Single Touch Payroll solution on or before July 1, 2018. SapphireOne was certified for this Single Touch Payroll on 1 May 2018.

To assess whether you need to implement Single Touch Payroll on July 1, 2018 you were required to do a count of your Payroll / HR employees as of 1 April 2018.

If this count is 20 or more, then you are a ‘substantial employer’ and will have to report through STP. If it is 19 or less, then reporting through Single Touch Payroll will be optional until 1 July 2019. After that, it becomes mandatory for every employer to report through STP which is of course subject to changes in the legislation.

As part of the Single Touch Payroll process, the ATO matches the information sent through the portal against the corresponding employer/ employee profiles. As a result, businesses will no longer be required to complete payment summaries at the end of the financial year as it will have already been done and available to employees through myGov.

The following are some important aspects for employers to know regarding the Single Touch Payroll process:

  • A regular pay cycle (pay event) is when an employer carries out payroll at fixed regular intervals to remunerate employees. This is usually weekly, fortnightly, bi-monthly or monthly.
  • When you start reporting through your Single Touch Payroll-enabled solution, your pay event will need to include minimum reporting requirements in order for the ATO to receive the file.
  • The employer must report the year-to-date values of gross salary or wages, allowances or other payments (as relevant), deductions and PAYG withholding for each employee included in each pay event.

If you currently fall into the “Substantial Employer” category and do not yet have a solution that works with STP, contact one of our SapphireOne team to go through your options in finding a resolution to your current systems short comings.

Lodge your Tax Return effortlessly and spend time on your big idea

Lodge Tax Return effortlessly and spend time on your big idea with SapphireOne

At the end of financial year whether you are in Australia, New Zealand or anywhere in the world, all companies have tax obligations. The requirement to produce your Profit & Loss and Balance Sheet at the end of the financial year is mandatory for all businesses and organisations.

A financial year (or fiscal year, or sometimes budget year) is the period used by governments and their tax agencies for accounting and budget purposes, which vary between countries. It is also used for financial reporting by business and other organizations. Laws in many tax jurisdictions/countries require company financial reports to be prepared and published on an annual basis, but generally do not require the reporting period to align with the calendar year. The End of Financial Year (EOFY) is the date that marks the end of the financial year.

The calendar year is used as the financial year by about two thirds of publicly traded companies in the United States and for a majority of large corporations in the UK and elsewhere, with notable exceptions being in Australia, New Zealand and Japan. In Australia the End of Financial year generally falls on June 30th, New Zealand ends their financial year on March 31st. Some organisations and companies follow the USA end their financial year which is often on the same day of the week each year, for example, the Friday closest to 31 December. Under such a system, some fiscal years will have 52 weeks and others 53 weeks.

Taxation laws generally require accounting records to be maintained and taxes calculated annually, which usually corresponds to the financial year used by the government. The calculation of tax on an annual basis is especially relevant for direct taxation, such as company income tax. Many annual government fees and levies—such as Council rates, licence fees, etc. are also calculated on a financial year basis, while others are charged on an anniversary basis.

Many educational institutions have a financial year which ends during the summer to align with the academic year (and, in some cases involving public universities, with the state government’s financial year), and because the university is normally less busy during the summer months. In the northern hemisphere this is July to the next June. In the southern hemisphere this is calendar year, January to December. Some media/communication-based organisations use a broadcast calendar as the basis for their fiscal year.

Whatever the size of your business and tax obligations, you must report and pay any amount due to the ATO, this includes Superannuation and GST, VAT or Sales Tax reporting. It is essential to lodge tax return accurately in order to achieve the maximum business offset and possibly even receive a tax refund.

By managing everything from Financial Reporting, Inventory Control, Assets, Job Projects, Payroll/HR to Bank Reconciliations, SapphireOne ERP CRM DMS can give you more time to do the things that matter, such as developing new strategies and thinking in your business or organisation.

SapphireOne helps you to prepare and lodge tax return
