Overview of STP Phase 2

Single Touch Payroll Phase 2 will see Australian businesses build on their existing reporting to share more information each pay run.

Step one - Update employee profiles

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

Step two - Replacing pay items

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

Step three - Leave categories

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

Step four - Enrol in STP Phase 2

The capability to enrol in STP Phase 2 is now available to all customers, meaning you can officially enrol and make the switch today.
