Single Touch Payroll – Phase 2

Increased reporting from 1st January 2022

From the tax office

“In the 2019–20 Budget it was announced that we would expand the data collected through STP.

This expansion of STP (also known as STP Phase 2) reduces the reporting burden for employers who need to report information about their employees to multiple government agencies. It also supports the administration of the social security system.

Employers will report the additional information through STP on or before each pay day.

The mandatory start date for STP Phase 2 reporting will be 1 January 2022.

There is nothing you need to do right now. We are working closely with digital service providers who will update your STP-enabled software for you.

More information about applying for additional time, if required, to transition to STP Phase 2 will be provided soon.”
