Industry engagement forum

The Industry engagement forum (previously known as the Single Touch Payroll Engagement Forum) was established to inform the community on Single Touch Payroll progress, matters and work through operational and change issues.

The forum also provides a platform to provide the latest information on Superannuation and SuperStream.


The frequency and timing of meetings will be at the discretion of the Single Touch Payroll project team but will occur approximately every three to six months.

Meetings are face to face and locations will rotate between Sydney and Melbourne with livestreaming available if you are not able to attend in person.
