Get Started with GovReports Single Touch Payroll Phase 2

We are pleased to announce we have released Single Touch Payroll Phase 2 well ahead of the government reporting deadline.

The ATO STP Phase 2 was initially planned to start on 1 July 2021; however, it has been postponed to 1 March 2022 because of COVID-19 impacts on business and software providers. Some software providers have requested even further deferrals for the start implementation date – but we’re ready to go right away.

The ATO can accept STP Phase 2 data now – we recommend you transition from GovReports V1 to V2 and get ahead of the curve. If you convert to V2 today, you’ll have plenty of time to become familiar with the new reporting and get all the GovReports technical support you need.

STP Phase 2 reporting has been a huge project for our excellent development team – it’s not just a matter of adding a few extra fields; it’s a whole new way of reporting to meet the ATO’s requirements.
