Reporting of Employee Payment Summaries

Each year, employers must provide Employee Payment Summaries to Employee by 14 July and also send an Annual Payment Summary Annual Report to the ATO.
 
In the past, employers have been able to lodge their annual report using disks or flash drives. The ATO are closing this service and employers will now need to lodge Payment Summary Reports online.
 
In order to lodge online, employers will need an AUSkey. This protects the security of information transmitted. Employers can register for an AUSkey at www.auskey.abr.gov.au
 
Employers can lodge their annual report online by:

  1. Lodging directly from your accounting or payroll software (if it is Standard Business Reporting enabled).  MYOB and Xero are both listed on the SBR Product Registrar.
  2. Using the file transfer facility on the ATO business portal at www.ato.gov.au/businessportal
