The first stage involves transitioning your existing employee profiles to be STP Phase 2 compliant.

Stage two - Replacing pay items

Stage two involves reporting the individual components that make up an employee’s pay, rather than reporting just a single gross amount.

Stage three - Leave categories

Stage three involves classifying your organisation's active leave pay items in line with the ATO’s appropriate reporting codes.
