The way Australian employers are required to report staff salary, tax and superannuation information to the Australian Tax Office (ATO) has changed. The University is required to report this information as a result of a legislative change, known as Single Touch Payroll (STP).

Year to Date reporting

From June 2019, the University will commence reporting year to date salary, tax and super information to the ATO for staff on a fortnightly basis. This information can then be viewed by current and previous staff via myGov, through the ATO Online Services link.

Current staff will be paid by the University in the same way as previous and will continue to receive fortnightly payslip via Staff Services Online (SSO).

Payment Summary is now an Income Statement

The University is no longer required to provide a Payment Summary to staff. The ATO will provide this information to current and previous staff as an Income Statement via myGov, through the ATO Online Services link.

Staff can continue to lodge their tax return in the same way as in previous years. This may be through a registered tax agent or by using myTax.

Previous financial year Payment Summaries will continue to be available in Staff Services Online (SSO).

What do you need to do?

In order to access Year to Date information or the end of financial year Income Statement, staff are required to have a myGov account and link the ATO Online Service to it. To do this please visit the ATO website for instructions: Setting up your myGov Account

For assistance in setting up your myGov account please contact the ATO on 13 28 61.

What if I need a copy of my Income Statement and can’t access myGov?

The ATO can provide a copy of your Income Statement upon request. This will only be available once the University has finalised your 2018/2019 financial year salary, tax and super details at the end of June.
Please contact the ATO on 13 28 61.

Further information can be found on the ATO website:
