Services Australia: Using STP for pre-fill purposes

January 14, 2021

Services Australia has started to use the Single Touch Payroll facility to pre-fill employer name and ABN details on Centrelink Online Accounts and the Express Plus Centrelink app. This will be expanded further over the next 12 to 18 months. Income will also progressively be pre-filled and so recipients “will no longer need to calculate their income”. It will be implemented for other payroll details, like separation certificates and leave entitlements. STP will also be used for Family Tax Benefits and Child Support recipients.
