Single Touch Payroll – A Catalyst for Proactive Advisory

This is also the perfect follow up to this session Single Touch Payroll – What You Must Know!

STP could be the greatest advisory opportunity for Accountants since the introduction of GST and this webinar is essential for anyone planning on (or already) advising or implementing Single Touch Payroll (STP) with clients.
