No-cost and low-cost Single Touch Payroll solutions
There will be a range of no-cost and low-cost Single Touch Payroll (STP) solutions available in the market from early 2019. These solutions will best suit micro employers (with one to four employees) who need to report through STP, but do not currently have payroll software.
Companies have put forward product proposals to offer no-cost and low-cost STP solutions in response to a market request. The solutions are required to be affordable (costing less than $10 per month), take only minutes to complete each pay period and not require the employer to maintain the software.
These solutions may include mobile apps, simple reporting solutions and portals.
While we will take all reasonable care to ensure information provided in this list is accurate, changes in circumstances may occur after the solutions are released which may affect the accuracy of this information.
The list order has been randomly generated and does not imply any preference. We do not endorse any of the suppliers listed.
