STP and Payroll for Withholding Payer Number (WPN)

29 May 2023


A Withholding Payer Number (WPN) is allocated to individuals, and some non-individuals, who do not have an Australian Business Number (ABN) but have withholding obligations under Pay as You Go (PAYG).

Employers with a withholding payer number (WPN) have been exempt from reporting Single Touch Payroll (STP) but they are required to start reporting these payments through STP from 1 July 2023.

By choosing CloudPayroll, an easy-to-use cloud-based payroll solution you can process your pay run and report STP with a WPN, plus:

  • Pay your employees via bank.aba file. Alternatively, CloudPayroll can pay employees with 2-day direct debit method.
  • Calculate PAYG and pay direct to ATO each pay run or provide a report to assist with payment each quarter.
  • Calculate superannuation and pay automatically to each super fund (optional).
  • Provide an online Timelog tool for employees to record hours worked for approval to be included in the pay run.
  • Online leave management.

As part of CloudPayroll’s onboarding and implementation process we manage the setup process. This includes, if applicable, setting up multiple pay rates, for example, evening shift, Saturday or Sunday etc. Training is personalised to ensure a smooth transition from your current payroll solution. You receive ongoing unlimited phone and email support at no additional cost, ensuring you have the peace of mind that you can get prompt assistance if required.
