The Joint Bodies are committed to the successful implementation of Single Touch Payroll (STP) Phase 2, however for the reasons below, digital service providers, intermediaries and employers are not in a position to meet the proposed 1 July 2021 start date.
We therefore seek a deferral of the start date to 1 July 2022. Such an extension will help to ensure that the data submitted through STP 2 to the ATO, and subsequently shared with Services Australia and others, is more likely to be accurate and able to be relied upon by Government.
