Getting Ready for STP Phase 2 (Comments from MYOB)

Practical demonstration

No matter which software product you use, all payroll software has had to incorporate new and additional features to cater for the move to STP2. The ATO has worked with the software companies to ensure consistency of the new definitions and reason codes that will form the basis of the new STP2 reporting.

In this session, Leanne Berry from MYOB looks at:

  • The role software plays in STP2 reporting
  • Both the existing and new workflows required with your clients
  • Preparing yourself for STP2
  • The new report categories that appear in STP2 software
  • Collecting and collating employee data to add to your STP2 report
Kerrie Jarius
Disaggregation – Understand the Components

Kerrie has been heavily involved as a practicing BAS Agent and as a Bookkeeping Industry Representative, working with the ATO to ensure the transition to STP2 is as smooth as possible. Disaggregation is the basis of STP2 reporting and can be quite difficult to grasp as it is all about splitting up a payroll into smaller components.

In this comprehensive session, Kerrie delivers all the details relating to:

  • The new Income Types to be reported under STP2
  • The Need for any Country Codes
  • The purpose of Disaggregation
  • Disaggregation and pulling apart the key reporting components
Leanne Berry and Kerrie Jarius
Disaggregation and the Software – A Practical Perspective

Practical demonstration

The theory is one thing but seeing how Disaggregation is applied practically in software is a key learning, as you transition your clients to STP2. Join Kerrie and Leanne, for this practical demonstration which looks at:

  • 5 Key changes all software will need to deliver with STP2
  • Setting up a payroll for each employee and the relevant STP2 codes to use
  • Allowances reporting has seen significant change under STP2 and Leanne and Kerrie work through the practical approach to deal with the new requirements
Kelvin Deer
STP2 Terminations, Resignations, Retirements & Transfers

It is not an uncommon scenario to see employees transfer, resign, retire or be dismissed. STP2 sees further disaggregation of the payments that are made to an employee in these circumstances.

Join Australian Bookkeepers Network Director, Kelvin Deer as he discusses the STP2 implications for:

  • Resignations, retirements, and terminations
  • The STP2 treatment for the various payments that are made to employees on ending employment
  • New cessation date and reporting reason codes to add to the STP2 payroll
  • The importance of payer and payee ID in your software when and employee transfers within a business
Kerrie Jarius

The disaggregation of Allowances paid to employees is going to be arguably the single biggest area of concern for payroll providers and government agencies. Kerrie will explain:

  • Why Disaggregation of Allowances are so important to get right
  • What’s reportable and What’s not under STP2
  • The 9 disaggregation components for Allowances and a walk through of the key issues to consider
Kelvin Deer

  • Salary Sacrifice Arrangements
  • Work related deductions
  • Child support deductions
  • Superannuation reporting
  • Reportable Fringe Benefits and Reportable Employer Super Contributions
