I connected to the ATO yesterday and set up our company file for STP. I was asked if I was an authority for the company with the ATO, which I am.
The problem is, as I read the MYOB steps to become STP ready, each person processing Payroll needs to Connect to the ATO independently.
My office staff who process our Payroll, do not, and will not, have authority and therefore will not be able to connect with the ATO.
At present they prepare our payroll to Electronic Payment stage and I pick up from there, creating the Bank File and hitting the 'go' button. Will it be a similar process with the Payroll Reporting?
Solved! Go to Solution.
As discussed on the phone, letting your employees Connect to ATO through the software won't allow them automatic access to your business Portal account. They will have to get those details from you.
In the case that you don't wish for them to have those details, they can pass the Software ID to you to link to the portal to allow for processing.
ummm, I went through this process myself and only I needed to notify the ATO of the software ID.
My 2 other users also when through the Connect to ATO process but did not need to go through the entire process. They selected their role and was taken straight to the "You're almost done!" page. They can now make declarations when processing payroll.
If you don't want your staff to have access to make these declarations, then I suggest they Save & Close the payroll. Once you've reviewed the pays and are happy with them, record, declare and pay them.
Thanks for your feedback @oyster. Very helpful.
When my other user went through the Connect to the ATO process, they weren't taken straight to the 'Your almost done page' and when they contacted the ATO they were not allowed to continue as they were not listed as a company authority.
After reading your post though, I went back into Connect to the ATO, took a punt and selected 'I've contacted the ATO' and it appears they'll be able to make the declarations, fingers crossed.
I intend to have them Save & Close the first payroll for my to review, record, declare and pay to get a feel for the process and take it to a review from there.
