Need Old Business Management software ID needed for STP setup in new MYOB product

I am the treasurer for an organisation. We have gone from MYOB Essentials to MYOB Business Lite this is a nightmare. I need the old BMS id so I can give to the ATO for the STP. Rang ATO they said get it from MYOB as it explains on the ATO website and MYOB said get it from ATO. 10 hours later and many phone calls later I cannot go onto access Manager as being a Treasuer this has to be all set up on the Aust Business Register which we are not but organising for ATO will take more than a month. Help

  • Hello NYPTreasurer 


    Thank you for your post. 


    I'm sorry to hear about this experience. 

    You should be able to find your previous BMS ID via the ATO's online services by following these steps:

    1. Log into the ATO's online services.
    2. Go to Employees > STP reporting (agents go to Business > STP reporting).
    3. Click the dropdown arrow next to one of your STP reports.
    4. Copy the Business Management software (BMS) ID so you can paste it into the Previous software BMS ID field in MYOB when prompted in your new software.
