If a client has not migrated to STP Phase 2 can they still do their payroll for the first few weeks in July and report their STP in Phase 1. They will Finalize the payroll for 2023 as normal.

Thanks in advance

    Yes it will, we have a deferral until the end of September to give our customers a little bit of extra time in the upgrade and transition process.

    With that said, if the client remains on 2022 for a bit and creates pays that fall in the 2023/24 financial year, they'll need to ensure that any required tax/super changes are updated manually eg. Super Guarantee rate change to 11% for example.

    Hi there @Shirley Ingle, good to hear from you! 🙂

    Reckon Accounts Hosted & Reckon Accounts Desktop 2023 will only create STP Phase 2 submissions. So our recommendation is to complete the last pays and finalise the year in 2022 then upgrade to 2023 and complete the Migration Assistant to update the employee and pay item info to phase 2 requirements.

    Thanks Rav. If the client does not upgrade to 2023 and does a couple of weeks pays in July under the present program, will the STP Phase 1 be accepted by the ATO
