Payroll software FAQs

Payroll software helps businesses automate their payroll processes. This can include tasks like payroll processing, payroll calculation, tax filing, and detailed reports.

Single Touch Payroll (STP) legislation requires employers to report wages, PAYG withholding, and superannuation information directly to the ATO using an online payroll system.

One of the significant benefits of using payroll software is that it can help businesses avoid penalties for non-compliance with payroll tax laws. These laws can be complicated and subject to change, which can make it challenging for businesses to stay on top of their obligations.
