  • Transitioning to STP-enabled software

    Your digital service provider (DSP) will support your transition to STP reporting. They will let you know which method best suits your payroll software or solution:

    • Provide an opening year-to-date (YTD) balance for all employees (active, inactive and terminated) in an update event.
    • Report (YTD) balances for all employees (active, inactive and terminated) in your first pay event.
    • Report (YTD) amounts for employees through an STP pay event and YTD amounts for inactive and terminated employees in a later update event that must be lodged by 14 July, or the deferred due date.
    • Report the current (YTD) balances for the employees included in your first pay event. Give payment summaries to terminated and inactive employees and lodge a PAYG payment summary annual report to cover the payments you made before your first STP pay event (only when transitioning to STP for the first time).
    • Start your STP reporting with zero (YTD) balances and give payment summaries to all of your employees (current, inactive and terminated). Lodge a PAYG payment summary annual report for payments you made before your first STP pay event (only when transitioning to STP for the first time).
