LILAC Document Help
Single Touch Payroll Settings
There are two (once off / 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 at: Reports > Payroll > Single Touch Upload.
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.
