Single Touch Payroll technical committee

The main role of the Single Touch Payroll technical committee (STPTC) is to provide advice and recommendations to the Single Touch Payroll (STP) project collaboration forums, in regard to technical matters which cannot be resolved under direction from the ATO technical lead. Broader cross-project technical matters may be referred to the Digital service providers Architecture Reference Group (DARG) for advice.

The last meeting was held on 1 May 2019. The STPTC has closed.


The STPTC membership list (XLSX, 19.2KB) is updated to reflect members as they join. The annual membership refresh has completed for the current year, however persons may nominate for consideration.

Digital service provider members of the STPTC represent whole of digital service provider industry, in regard to the technical implementation of STP.

Members are respected for their:

  • experience and/or knowledge of STP technical software development practices.
  • demonstrated capacity to participate from the viewpoint of the DSP industry or of a  particular market segment (not of a specific company).
  • personal contribution to expectations of members as per the STPTC charter.

The ATO appreciates the expertise and generosity of time of digital service providers in partnering with us in the development of digital solutions for tax and superannuation systems.
