What is STP Phase 2?

In the 2019–20 Budget, the Government announced that Single Touch Payroll (STP) would be expanded to include additional information. This expansion of STP (also known as STP Phase 2) will reduce the reporting burden for employers who need to report information about their employees to multiple government agencies. It will also help Services Australia’s customers, who may be your employees, get the right payment at the right time. It also supports the administration of the social security system.

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