Getting Ready for Single Touch Payroll

STP – 1 May 2018 10am to 12 noon – For Employers

Single Touch Payroll is one of the biggest changes for businesses and their accountants since the introduction of GST in July 2000.

If you were in business at that time, you were probably apprehensive, maybe a little bit annoyed with the Government on forcing you to change the ways you did things, but it hasn’t all been that bad has it? We all survived and in fact, I think the changes to the ways business “kept their books” has been a godsend and so many benefits have arisen from a system that was “forced on us”. Single Touch Payroll is going to be no different.

There is no need to feel apprehensive or wary if you are well informed and prepared and this is exactly what my webinar is for.

Join me on 1 May for 2 hours from the comfort of your business premises or your home office, where I will cut through all the ATO jargon and explain Single Touch Payroll in easy to understand, practical and relaxed way. You will learn:
