Payroll End of Financial Year Finalisation

A reminder to all businesses that the STP End of Financial Year Finalisation is a process you must do to ensure your employees are marked as 'Tax Ready'.

For those businesses with 19 or fewer employees, you have until 31 July 2020 to make the finalisation declaration.

Businesses with 20 or more employees were due on the 14 July 2020.

You will need to tell your employees:

  • you are no longer required to provide them with a payment summary for the information you’ve reported and finalised through STP
  • they can access their year-to-date and end-of-year income statement online through myGov or through their registered tax agent
  • 'income statement' is the new term for their payment summary
  • to wait until their income statement is 'Tax ready' before lodging their tax return
  • to check their personal details and if necessary update both you and the ATO (incorrect personal details may prevent them from seeing their STP information)
Payment summaries are still required to be issued for those businesses not yet reporting through STP.

If you require assistance with the STP End of Financial Year Finalisation process, please contact our office.
