Could you please advise what the STS reporting time frame is for foreign employees on a shadow payroll system.

 

For example can payments under shadow payroll arrangements be reported to the ATO in the month following the month in which they occur or quarterly.

Hi @Louise2,

 

Thanks for your patience while we checked information with a specialist area regarding your questions. We've noticed you asked two queries about Shadow Payroll and the answer below covers both.

 

We are currently finalising the position on shadow payroll reporting to replace the expiring shadow payroll exemption for the 2018-2019 year. Essentially, this will provide deferred STP reporting of shadow payroll or inbound assignees – this will be monthly in arrears. Guidance will be published in the coming weeks.

 

Keep an eye out on the Single Touch Payroll Exemptions page on our website.

 

Hope this helps!

 

Thanks,

 

Nate

Hi Nate,

I appreciate the info you provided previously about a possible extension being available to foreign employers / shadow payrolls. I was wondering if you had any update on the status of that decision, as so far I have not seen any updates or communication about this recently.

 

Regards,

Kiel
