Preparing for Single Touch Payroll
Single Touch Payroll is coming to Australia and upgrading to Sybiz Visipay 17.10 is an important first step to prepare. Single Touch Payroll compatibility will only be available in a coming update to Sybiz Visipay (version 17.20).
Single Touch Payroll initial support
This feature allows you to identify that you wish to get ready to use Single Touch Payroll in the future and will ensure that employee records have the information required by the ATO from 1 July 2018.
Single Touch Payroll initial support is made active easily. The relevant settings are acessible by going to File > Options > Tax Details, and select Active under Single Touch Payroll (as shown below).
Employee address warnings
Employee addresses are required to be complete and correct for Single Touch Payroll purposes.
A few rules have been added, such as: Address Line 1 must be present; Address Line 2 is optional if Address Line 1 is used. It is recommended to review employee on-boarding processes to ensure the collection of address details is formalised.
Warnings will now appear on employee records where necessary Single Touch Payroll data is missing.
Categorisation of Allowances
An additional field called ‘Category’ is now available for Allowance pay items. Sybiz Visipay 17.10 sets the value to ‘Other’ for all Allowances and you will need to recategorize as appropriate into one of the 5 specific options; or leave as ‘Other’ in the event that a specific option does not apply.

Improvements made to SuperStream exports
The SuperStream export function has been improved to report on the split between ESG and Employer Additional Super. In cases where the $450 weekly threshold for ESG is not reached in the first pay of the reporting period, but is reached in a later pay for that period, the super contribution is aggregated.
