Hi, I have registered the mobile app with the ATO and at this stage have not employed anyone so need to submit a nil wage report. How do I do this ?

Hi Ian,

If you currently do not employ anyone there is no need to submit and in fact, the app will not allow you to do this as you can only create & send submissions for employees.

However, if you are paying yourself then you will need to report this as part of STP so you'll need to add yourself as an employee in the app and create a submission.

It might be worth giving them a buzz just so they're aware of your specific situation (if they aren't already) so they have the most up to date info.
