Frequently asked questions
How many Employees can I have FREE?
When you want to add more employees, it's as simple as choosing the plan that best suits your needs. We have always provided tiered plans allowing you to easily stay in total control of your payroll costs, making management an easy task.
We are aware of a few payroll products that offer the ability to add an unlimited number of employees free. Providing a comprehensive payroll offering costs an enormous amount of money to develop and maintain. We have asked our team to work for free, but selfishly, they expect payment for the outstanding efforts they perform.
Since 1987 we have continued to build comprehensive payroll solutions and do not want to provide you with a product that offers minimal features and functionality. After all, there is a standard required to meet Fair Work and Australian Taxation Office compliance requirements. If specific conditions are missing, you have to continually request features because you cannot meet your legal obligations.
How do I add more Employees as my Business grows?
You can easlily change plans as your Business grows. Simply choose the plan you wish to move to and click Change, it's as simple as that!
Is support provided?
Yes! Support is included in all of our plans for no extra cost. You can even talk to a real person on the phone (depending on the plan you have chosen).
What's the catch, why is e-PayDay FREEPAY free?
There isn't one! The first two (2) employees are 100% free. You can use e-PayDay FREEPAY® and pay nothing, zero, zilch, nada, nix, naught.

Single Touch Payroll (STP) changes the way employers report their employees' taxation and superannuation information to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO). When you pay your employees using Single Touch Payroll, year-to-date values of gross salary or wages, allowances or other payments (as relevant), deductions and PAYG withholding for each employee included in that pay event. Employer super liability or ordinary time earnings (OTE) amounts for each employee is also automatically sent directly to the ATO after processing your payroll. When you start reporting using Single Touch Payroll, you will be sending the ATO your employees' taxation and superannuation information on or before each pay day.
Why was Single Touch Payroll introduced?
Single Touch Payroll is an Australian Government initiative that enables Businesses and Employers to report (real time) staff salary and wages (including ordinary time earnings) and PAYG withholding amounts to the ATO at the same time the employees are paid. Single Touch Payroll provides many benefits for both Employers and Employees alike.
When did Single Touch Payroll Start?
STP reporting started on 1 July 2018 for substantial Employers (those with 20 or more Employees).
Legislation extending Single Touch Payroll has been passed and received Royal Assent (1 March 2019) to include Employers with 19 or fewer employees with reporting starting from 1 July 2019.
What are the benefits of Single Touch Payroll?
Single Touch Payroll captures your employees’ Tax and Super information and sends it to the ATO while you’re running your existing business process – when you pay your employees.
Employers who report through STP don’t need to provide their employees with a Payment Summary* (which some people still call a Group Certificate) at the end of the financial year.
Employees who no longer receive a Payment Summary have easy access to the information they need in myGov.
You no longer need to give the ATO a Payment Summary Annual Report (PSAR) for the information you report through STP.
*Payments that are generally not paid through a payroll process, or may be paid by payers to recipients that are not their employees cannot be reported under STP reporting. For example, payments made by the: Department of Human Services, Investment bodies and managed investment funds, Purchasers of certain taxable Australian property. As these payments are outside the scope of STP reporting, there is no relief from payment summary and annual report obligations. A payer must continue to ensure it complies with their obligation to provide payment summaries and an annual report to the Commissioner with respect to these withholding payments. In addition, a payer cannot include in their STP reporting any payment made through its payroll software that is not a withholding payment. Examples of such payments include partnership distributions and payments to suppliers.
