Migrating to STP Phase 2

Chet Member Posts: 36

Hi Rav,

I've read the articles and watched the video on STP Phase 2 migration.

Just a question, before i embark on migration that i was hoping you can answer.

Do we need to ask all our employees how many dependants they have and what their Medicare levy surcharge tier is?

Is there any other info we need about our employees that we need to gather before migrate to STP Phase 2?

    @Chet Only if the employee selected this on their TFN Declaration (Most employees don’t know what this actually is so I’m yet to see it myself 😬)

    Ha, thanks Shaz.

    Glad i'm not the only one in the dark. I looked up an employee's tax file declaration and this isn't even asked, so i was kinda caught off guard by this new requirement.
