Single Touch Payroll Phase 2

When I called back in May this year 2022, I was told by someone in MYOB, that they are looking at doing single touch payroll Phase 2 off line as we do for normal wages and submitting.  Is this still going to be possible to do as going on line and off line with accountright to do wages weekly last time caused me issues, as we cannot stay on line due to internet problems in our area.

Re: Single Touch Payroll Phase 2

Hello @Teresa58 

 

Welcome to the Community Forum.

 

Your company file will need to be online to be able to report with STP phase 2. To give you plenty of time to move your file online, we've obtained a deferral from the ATO.

 

This means you have until 1 January 2023 to move your file online and start reporting to the ATO via STP Phase 2.

 

I have linked our Help Article on getting ready for STP phase 2 on further insight and how to set it up.

Kind regards,
Chris

Re: Single Touch Payroll Phase 2

Hi, You didn't really answer the question.

 

We too do not wish to be online with everything.  We wish to own our own data; and being online give MYOB the ownership - this is because once the subscription is finished the data disappears.

 

We too wish to just upload the completed wages to the ATO.

 

So how do we upload on STP2 without being online with everything?

Hello @Ele 

 

You can continue to use STP phase 1, to report using STP phase 2, your file does need to be online. 

 

Online cloud storage is included with the MYOB subscription. 

 

I have attached a Help Article on putting your file online which has steps on the different ways to accomplish this.

Kind regards,
Chris

Re: Single Touch Payroll Phase 2

Thank you for your reply.

 

However we do not wish to go online.

We do not wish to use MYOB online storage.

 

We wish to keep ownership of our data.  When you go online, you loose ownership  eg should we cancel then  after 30 days our data is no longer available to us.

 

We ONLY want to upload the STP2 to the ATO.

 

We have had MYOB since the days it was supplied on disk.

Re: Single Touch Payroll Phase 2

Hello @Ele 

 

To upload STP phase 2 data to the ATO your file needs to be online. 

 

When you upload the file online you retain ownership of your data. Providing some more context to the scenario you have used an example. If you cancel your subscription while your file is offline, we always recommend that you take a backup of the file, which then you are able to restore locally and continue having access after the subscription is canceled. 

I hope the above information has quashed any worries about the ownership of data.

Kind regards,
Chris

Re: Single Touch Payroll Phase 2

WHY do we have to put our company file online. when we only want to upload to the ATO?

 

What is Myobs reasons for not making the STP2 upload to the ATO the same as the STP1 upload to the ATO ?

Re: Single Touch Payroll Phase 2

Hello @Ele 

 

In order to register/transition to Single Touch Payroll (STP v2), you do need to have the company file stored online with AccountRight and use the browser interface. This is to ensure that you can integrate with the ATO's online services.


At this time, our development efforts are put into that online process. We are not currently looking at an offline solution for that registration process.

Kind regards,
Chris

Re: Single Touch Payroll Phase 2

We currently do the payroll offline. Sign in to AccountRite. Send STP1 to ATO.

 

"This is to ensure that you can integrate with the ATO's online services"

Are you saying that we will no longer be able to process payroll offline, and then send the STP2 to ATO?

 

Why would you need our company file (general Ledger, customers / jobs data, suppliers data, etc etc etc) to do that?

Re: Single Touch Payroll Phase 2

Hello @Ele 

 

Yes, to be able to connect with the ATO's online services your file will also need to be online, and continue to be online to report through STP Phase 2.

Please don't hesitate to post again if you need help in the future. 

Kind regards,
Chris
