Single Touch Payroll


Feature released for all customers on support: May 22nd 2019 

The purpose of this article is to guide you through how to use the Single Touch Payroll setup for Autosoft.

PLEASE NOTE: Our software will be using a third party to process the files. These are required to be uploaded into their portal at a very small cost. This company is called Ozedi. The cost example they gave Autosoft was that it would cost approximately $3 per payroll if you have 100 employees. This will be less, if you have less.

ALSO NOTE: To get this feature you must be on version, or higher.

 ALSO NOTE: This process MUST be run on your SERVER.



To allow this to work, we had to make some changes to the setup for deductions, entitlements and wage type.

You will need to do the following before you run this for the first time:

1. Add types to all of your deductions


2. Tick "Allowance" for all of your allowances, and select an allowance type (allowances only)



Adding Single Touch

We've found some customers have issues with not being able to see Single Touch Payroll after the update. This is due to Security. You will need to do the following:


1. Go to Security - Security Maintenance


NOTE: This will need to be done by someone with access to this menu

2. Go to the Management Tab


3. Untick "Remove disabled menu options"


4. Click "Register Components"


5. Click "Ok"



6. Reboot Payroll

7. After Payroll has been rebooted, go to Security - Security Maintenance


8. Go to Users


9. Find the user you are logged in as


10. Take note of the group on the RIGHT


11. Go to the GROUPS tab


12. Click on the group from STEP 10


13. Find "Single Touch Payroll File Creation"


14. Tick "Access" . This should tick all the boxes EXCEPT for OBJECT. Object must remain unticked


15. Close the view

16. Reboot Payroll

You should now be able to access the Single Touch Payroll


If you don't have a list of invoices show up:


1. Go to Security - Security Maintenance


2. Go to Groups


3. Select the same group as step 12 above

4. Go to Queries


5. Tick the box under "Access" for "Payroll Lookup (Single Touch Payroll)", and "Payroll Lookup(Single Touch Payroll)"


6. Reboot Payroll



Before Continuing:

- Go to Autosoft5\Ozedi\Concatenation\Output and save the bulk file from a previous payroll into a separate folder on your server, for recording purposes

- Clear ALL records from the following folders:

  • Autosoft5\Ozedi\Concatenation\Input
  • Autosoft5\Ozedi\Concatenation\Output
  • Autosoft5\Ozedi\Transform\Output
  • Autosoft5\Ozedi\Transform\Input

Note: you will have issues if these files have not been cleared. A future update will clear these files automatically.

Using Single Touch Payroll

1. Log into your payroll

2. Go to Payroll - Single Touch Payroll File Creation

3. Select the payroll that you would like to run

4. Put your name in the box for "Signatory Name"

5. Tick "Accepted By Signatory"

6. If you have reversed a payroll that you have already sent to the ATO, and you need to send the amendment, tick "Amendment to an original payroll already sent to the ATO".

If the original hasn't been sent, or this is not an amendment to a payroll, then leave this UNTICKED.

7. Press Export

The Program will now prompt you through the creation, transfer and formation stages. Explanations for what is happening at each prompt is below. IF YOU CLICK NO AT ANY POINT, you will have to start the process above again so, unless you have made a mistake, it is best to click YES on each prompt.

8. Click Yes on each prompt:


This prompt confirms that the excel file has been created by the system, and it is ready to be turned into the format required by the ATO. This file is a TEXT file and can be found in Autosoft5\Ozedi\transform\input



This prompt confirms that the file has been formatted correctly. The files can be found in Autosoft5\Ozedi\transform\output.


This prompt confirms that the files have been transferred to Autosoft5\Ozedi\concatenation\input and are ready to be formatted into ATO format.


This prompt confirms that the process is complete, and that you can find the file you require in Autosoft5\Ozedi\Concatenation\Output. The file will be called "bulk_{date}_{time}"
