STP - Paying PAYG tax to the ATO

I'm new

Every payday I tell the ATO how much payg tax has been taken out of our employees' pay via STP. At the end of the quarter I need to do a BAS and give the same information again. 

My suggestion is that the ATO prefills this information in for me based on the information I have given it via STP. Then I need only worry about GST in the BAS. This will reduce errors.

Hi @RobertH

 

Thank you for getting in touch with us, that’s a fantastic idea and something that we’re working towards.

 

We’re looking to eventually use the STP information to pre-fill labels W1 and W2 on the activity statement for small and medium PAYG withholders.

 

We will share more information on our website as it becomes available.

 

Thanks, NateH
