    I'm not aware of this being a requirement at the moment. I'm not sure if this will be included in STP2 or not but if it is the instructions will cover it.

    At the moment you don't, however further STP developments (starting from Phase 2 - due to commence in January 2022) will eventually map to all payroll categories & will automatically flow through to relevant government agencies including Services Australia (aka "Centrelink") & the Child Support Agency, eliminating the need for employers to report separately 😊
