Single Touch Payroll: Get STP Ready

March 21st, 2019 by ironbark

What is Single Touch Payroll


Single Touch Payroll (STP) is a new way of reporting tax and super information to the ATO.

This means that you will be required to report salary and wages, tax withholdings and superannuation each time you pay your employees.


From 1 July 2018, STP became mandatory for employers with 20 or more employees. From 1 July 2019, all Australian small business owners are required to report their payroll information.

Telstra, SAP, and Accenture Forge Alliance to Offer Clarity to Cloudy Technology

June 28th, 2012 by ironbark

Telecommunications giant Telstra have partnered with enterprise software company SAP and technology services provider Accenture to offer business software applications as a service to enterprise and government organisations via cloud technology.

SAP, a German owned company standing for Systems, Applications, and Products in data processing, was founded in 1972 have now become a large provider of business solutions world wide.

Telstra will provide the SAP licensing, network, and storage via their cloud infrastructure, while Accenture will manage data migration, system integration, software maintenance, and help desk services.

General Manager of cloud services with Telstra, Mark Pratley has stated that offering an amalgamation of licensing, infrastructure, and service design for the cloud was always on the cards.

This is a fantastic development for these companies; however, for clients whose businesses require more synergy of systems, licensing, maintenance, and help desk, a one stop shop provider is recommended.

Business software application providers such as Ironbark Software offer licensing, network and storage capabilities, cloud infrastructure through their data centre, data migration, system integration and importantly, customisation, as well as maintenance and a dedicated help desk team entirely in house.

As ERP solutions are their sole business, Ironbark are able to provide a comprehensive business solutions package customised for specific industries and individual clients. From the initial business meeting and discussing requirements through to data migration and customisation of processes and software, to maintenance and help desk, Ironbark cater for every need internally.

Ironbark believe the most efficient manner of implementing business solutions is via a single provider. This ensures continuity of relationships between consultants and help desk programmers with the clients.

SAP’s head of business solutions and cloud for Australia, Jeremy Goddard, has said “We believe that our customers want choice; and we believe the relationship between Accenture, SAP and Telstra will ensure they have the choice to have all, or part of their application infrastructure in the cloud”. Ironbark agree with the first statement, clients not only want choice, but they often require diversity in choice, as not every company can operate with the same processes. However, this is possible without the amalgamation of services of separate businesses.

Ironbark are currently able to provide ERP solutions to clients via the platform of their choice. From installing hardware on the clients’ premises for private servers with Ironbark Software ready for use to offering business software applications entirely or partially available via cloud infrastructure.

Many larger companies that previously saw benefit of owning and maintaining their own hardware and servers are now looking toward the cloud as a new prospect. No matter what your outlook is on the appropriate platform for the hosting of business software, Ironbark will be able to provide it.
