In order to use STP, you need to be using an online payroll software solution that supports STP. If you’re using one, check to see if it supports STP.
However, if your business has been handling its payroll through spreadsheets, on paper or through a desktop payroll software, you’ll need to find software that can convert your data into the required format for STP or look at switching to an online solution.
If you’re not sure how to get started with the transition or are not sure what options are available for you as a small business, it might be time to get in contact with a BAS agent who can assess your business and provide you with specific solutions.
The other option is to ask a third party to handle your STP reporting on your behalf.
The Small Business Lounge (thesmallbusinesslounge.com.au) can offer help on switching to the right STP-supported solution for you or take the whole process off your hands so that you can focus on growing other important aspects of your business.
