Single Touch Payroll (‘STP’) allows the ATO to share data in real-time with other government agencies, to “help them deliver government services to the Australian community”.
As part of the ATO’s data-matching program, it has an STP data-sharing arrangement with Services Australia to help them administer Australia’s welfare system.
This means that people who are on an income support payment from Services Australia and need to report their employment income fortnightly to Centrelink will now see their employer details are pre-filled.
