Single Touch Payroll (STP)

In prepartion for STP, I clicked on the Payroll screen of the latest version of MYOB AccountRight Plus, "Payroll Reporting to the ATO".    As an intial step it brings up the "Set up Payroll Reporting: Connect to the ATO".   As a BAS Agent the MYOB procedure states that you need to first have the client connect to the ATO and register as the contact person for any ATO payroll queries.   


My problem is that as I process the fortnightly pays in MYOB from a timesheet sheet supplied by the client.   The client is not in a position to assist the ATO with any STP queries.    It appears that the MYOB setip steps are designed for a business where the client processes the payroll in MYOB and the BAS Agent simply submits the IAS & BAS.


So do I need to then arrange for the client to have a login to MYOB and register as the ATO contact, purely for legal reasons even if they will have to refer any STP queries to me, or is there a step or option I am missing ?

Re: Single Touch Payroll (STP)

Hi @Namron,


As per the Conversation, please register the business as a BAS Agent and complete the STP flow.

As you are the payroll officer here , you have to declare the pays once they are done so that it gets loaded to payroll reporting center. Please have a check on below support articles for further information
