What's New in STP Phase 2

(from the ATO's Business Implementation Guide)

The key changes between the Pay Event 2018 (Phase 1) and Pay Event 2020 (Phase 2) are:

STP Creator

Phase 2 has required a major re-write of STP Creator. While the concepts and process remains the same, STP Field names have changed. In Phase 1, STP Creator used the STP Field names as adopted by the Single Touch Payroll API - see Phase 1 Field list.

With Phase 2, as most users now use SBR, the STP Field names have been brought in line with the ATO terminology, such as Gross Amount and PAYG Amount rather than Employee gross pay and Employee tax - see Phase 2 Field list.
