Single Touch Payroll (STP) phase 1 has been in place since 2018 and phase 2 has arrived in 2022. All Australian employers must regularly submit payroll information through STP2 unless an exemption or deferral has been granted. Sybiz has been granted a deferral until 1 November 2022, this automatically extends to our customers using Sybiz Visipay for STP.
Our last STP2 webinar was held on 14 October 2022 and gave our customers a refresher before the 1 November start date. You can watch all past STP2 webinars on the link below.
For existing Sybiz customers to meet the requirements of Single Touch Payroll Phase 2 you will need to be on an STP2 compatible version of Sybiz Visipay (version 22.20 is the minimum version required for STP2 unless you are salary sacrificing allowances after 1 November, in which case you will need to be on version 22.22).

Reporting STP2 with Sybiz Visipay
Our existing Sybiz Visipay customers will ideally upgrade the latest version of Sybiz Visipay first - currently version 22.22. This will enable you to start getting your data set up for reporting on 1 November 2022.
You will need to upgrade to at least version 22.20 (unless salary sacrificing allowances, in which case this will be version 22.22) of Sybiz Visipay prior to commencing STP2 in November.
Now you’re ready to report Single Touch Payroll Phase 2 with Sybiz Visipay!
As Single Touch Payroll processes are refined by the ATO, businesses will need to ensure they continue to stay up to date with future releases of Sybiz Visipay.
