Before you can report Single Touch Payroll and super information to the ATO, you need to assign an STP Field to all the
payroll categories you've used in the current payroll year.
This includes wages, allowances, deductions, superannuation as well as entitlement accruals, (even though these are non-reportable).
The STP Field indicates the type of payment you're reporting (for example is it an 'Employee gross pay' amount or an Allowance?)
The mapping process is similar to how payroll categories were assigned to payment summary fields during the Payment Summary Assistant process. The main
difference is you now need to report superannuation amounts.

Still wondering which STP Field to use?
We'd love to be able to answer this question for you. However every business, award and employee agreement is unique, and so are the
names you give to your payroll categories.
We have provided general information in the link above. If you're still not sure of what's appropriate for your business,
talk to your bookkeeper, your tax advisor or the ATO. You can also refer to the ATO website for more information - see links from our Help page link above.
