Fireside Chat 11.25am -11.55am

Now that Single Touch Payroll has been expanded to include all employers, this session will be reflecting on the past year of STP, especially with the inclusion of smaller employers. 

Ian Gibson will be sitting down with the ATO's Single Touch Payroll Lead, Jason Lucchese, to discuss their insights and learning from the implementation experience in this fireside chat. Ian and Jason will share their respective points of view on what worked well, what did not and how this may help shape future changes to STP.

Most importantly, we will be taking a look at what's next for STP and any potential effects on the business software industry.
