With Single Touch Payroll (STP) legislation now requiring digital payroll reporting to the ATO with each pay run, countless small businesses like Anton Gerner Furniture will move to using accounting software technology, some for the first time. Specialising in using traditional techniques to create thoroughly contemporary furniture, Anton is no stranger to embracing new ways of working. Especially when they make his life easier. He adds, “STP minimises the chance of mistakes and eliminates a lot of the year-end chores that used to come with closing out payroll. For me, that means more time to do what I love.”
By making the move to digital payroll software and getting on top of all things STP, small businesses won’t only discover a reduction in errors and an increase in time, money and employee satisfaction: they’ll gain the space to do more of what matters, just like Anton. Yet while he prides himself on adopting the latest technology to aid in the running of his business, Anton still believes that some things are better done by hand.
