Getting Started

To get started with sodaPAY you’ll need to:

  1. Create an account
  2. Complete your Organisation Details
  3. Provide your Payroll Details
  4. Advise the Australian Tax Office of your unique Software Subscription ID
  5. Add Employees
  6. Submit your first pay from the Current Payroll screen

Important: The Australian Tax Office requires single touch payroll submissions to be Year-to-Date YTD figures for the financial year.

  • If you haven’t made any payments this financial year then the amounts you enter should be the actual pay period amounts.
  • If you have made payments this financial year, and have not reported these to the ATO then in you first pay period you need to report the Year-to-Date YTD figures. In subsequent pay periods enter the pay period amounts.
  • If you have made payments this financial year, and have reported these to the ATO(using other software) then the amounts you enter should be the actual pay period amounts.
