    Standard Business Reporting (SBR) and the practitioner lodgment service (PLS)

    SBR is a standard approach to digital record-keeping and simplifies reporting to government. The PLS is a service accessed by your practice management software and operates on the SBR platform. This service enables you to interact digitally with us through your SBR-enabled software.

    You can prepare reports directly from your SBR-enabled practice software and lodge using the PLS for a wide range of forms, statements and reports. You can also use it to report Single Touch Payroll, request reports and to prepare and revise activity statements.

    If your SBR-enabled software is cloud based (online) you won't need an AUSkey to interact with us. Your digital service provider will let you know what you need to do.

    You do need an AUSkey for desktop software and to access Online services for agents.
