CSV Overview

Important information

To use the ATO's STP Pay Event reporting it is required that payroll software vendors register with the ATO to obtain their own Payroll Product ID. Register with the ATO SBR as a software developer here. When completed, an account manager will be assigned to you and will be in touch to let you know further requirements how to obtain the Product ID.

If you are simply filling in a csv spreadsheet provided by us, you do not have to register.

YTD (Year To Date) cumulative

Please note: All Payee Amounts must be reported as Year to Date cumulative for the financial year reported in.


CSV file upload

The CSV option is available for software unable to implement the API. The same information is flattened out into our CSV file format and allows your client to upload their file to our Single Touch portal.
