What is Single Touch Payroll Phase 2

In the 2019–20 Budget, the government announced that Single Touch Payroll (STP) would be expanded to include additional information.

The expansion of STP, also known as STP Phase 2, will reduce reporting burden for employers who need to report information about their employees to multiple government agencies.

The mandatory start date was 1 January 2022 however Xero Payroll users obtained an extension until 31 December 2022.  STP Phase 2 will be rolled out in phases:

When will each stage begin?

Stage one: 

The first stage will start being available within Xero from mid-April onwards. This will include updates to the way new employee records are set up in payroll, ensuring STP Phase 2 compliance.

Stage two: 

The second stage will begin rolling out within Xero mid-year. This will extend the set up process to enable the transition of existing employee payroll records to STP Phase 2 compliance. This will provide ample time for you to ensure all employees in your business are correctly set up for STP2 Phase 2 compliance.

Stage three: 

The final stage will be available in the second half of this year. It will see the new pay items from STP 2 finalised in Xero, with product support to review existing pay items that may need to be changed to those stipulated by STP Phase 2.
