Attaché and Single Touch Payroll

Attaché is the leading provider of payroll and accounting software for Australian medium businesses - typically $2 million to $100 million revenue and 10-1,000 staff. From the outset Attache has played an active role in the overall solution design of Single Touch Payroll with the ATO. 


Payroll software built for medium businesses

Accounting and payroll software comes in three sizes. Small systems typically suit those with revenue under $2 million. If you have old multi-user software a small system could have less features than you have now. Our focus is medium systems for businesses with $2 million – $100 million revenue and 10 – 1,000 staff. Over 70% of medium businesses have moved to a hybrid system like Attaché. This leverages on-premise software with cloud technology to connect directly to the Australian Tax Office and offers employee self-service functionality such as online leave management.


24/7 employee self-service

MyPay – staff access to 42 months of past pay advices – no more resending missing documents. Also ensures a pay advice arrives within a day of payment as per Fair Work requirements.

Express Leave – staff can view policies and required documentation, see their entitlements, request leave and have it approved remotely. Leave calendars also show where everyone is each day.

Employee portal – staff can manage their contact details and view an organisation chart. New employees can complete TFN and super choice forms online along with their personal details.



Attaché is proudly Australian owned and operated. We have been helping aspiring businesses achieve their potential since 1981. We develop software for medium businesses that lets you optimise your payroll, accounting and operations. A broad range of industries use some or all of the Attaché suite including standalone payroll users, not-for-profit organisations, and wholesalers, distributors and manufacturers. Our network of accredited specialists across Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands are the most experienced and knowledgeable in the industry.
