LILAC Document Help
Single Touch Payroll Settings
There are two initial setup requirements for the correct operation of the Single Touch Payroll report, and subsequent submission to the ATO, they are: 1. TAXIDENTITY; and 2. Authorising Person.

With the two requirements established, after completeing a Payroll Payslip Cycle for all employees, upload progressive Single Touch Payroll data to the ATO via: Reports > Payroll > Single Touch Upload.
1. TAXIDENTITY
Establish a TAXIDENTITY with the required contact details at:
Documents > Names and Addresses > Name and Address.

The TAXIDENTITY key and the associated contact details form part of the ATO upload requirements. This key contains details for an organisation which will act as a signature for uploading Single Touch Payroll information.

TAXIDENTITY must be used as the Key, followed by the details of your business.
2. Authorising Person
Enter a Authorising Person here at;
Documents > Payroll > Single Touch Settings

The name of the Authorising Person is the only requirement. Other fields seen here are updated with the actual processing of Single Touch Payroll.
With these two requirements established, following each LILAC Payroll Payslip cycle for all employees go to:

Reports > Payroll > Single Touch Upload

This report uploads Single Touch Payroll data to the ATO.

See Below.

Follow points 1-6 from above: Uploading Payroll Data
* Where an upload has been made at the end of the financial year, without ticking the 'End of Year Final' check box, an ammendment can be made by following the steps above and ticking 'Amendment Run' + 'End of Year Final'.

** It is not possible to repeatedly make amendments once an upload with 'End of Year Final' ticked has been accepted by the ATO. In such a case where user wishes to amend an already uploaded 'End of Year Final' upload, the user may need to contact the ATO and reverse the 'End of Year Final' before correction is accpeted by the ATO.
