To submit a STP batch double-click on the Batch:
The STP Submission Form appears.
Confirm the input information:
Select test case: Test Submit (This option is only available for administrators, and is only accepted with ABN numbers reserved by the ATO for testing ..eg the one listed above)
Lodging as intermediary: "False"
This option is much like how a tax agent will submit returns on behalf of other entities. Selecting "True" and specifying your Practice's ABN depends on whether you want to access your submissions from a central online business portal (for your practice) or you have separate access to a portal response for the job you're submitting the data for. You don't need a separate registration to receive response messages as these will come back via this submission process.
Date of Payment: will be the batch date, ensure the payments to employees have the same date as the payment date.
Payroll period: Defaults from the Pay Wages entry or the date of employee dividends. Some entries will not have a payroll period so you will need to enter it.
Final pay event for the financial year: Set this to true if you know this is the last STP submission. If you have some employees having a final payment and some expecting more payments, you will need to split the batch or just submit an non-final submission by setting this option to "False".
If you are transitioning between job types you will need to do a Final Full Submission for the current CAC (eg VA). Future submissions for the new job type (eg CVL) will be submitted under the new CAC.
