Standard Business Reporting initiative

Payroll tax

We are a partner in the Standard Business Reporting (SBR) initiative being led by the Australian Treasury.

SBR allows a single secure sign-on for government online services, meaning only one user ID, password or digital certificate for each agency interaction. It enables businesses to pre-fill forms with commonly used data and uses transactions that provide instant validation and receipting of form lodgement.

Will it cost me anything to use SBR?

SBR is accessed only from your accounting, financial or payroll software, and the government has not charged for the use of the SBR facilities.

What do you need to do before you lodge?

You will need an AUSkey to lodge with us using your SBR-enabled software.

AUSkey is a single key for accessing government online services and is common to all the government agencies participating in SBR-enabled reporting.

Is your software SBR-enabled?

You will need to check with your software provider to see which function has been SBR-enabled.

Where do I register?

For more information on registering for AUSkey and other government agencies that accept AUSkey, visit the AUSkey website.

What else can I use an AUSkey for?

Customers that have an AUSkey can also log into Payroll Tax Online Services using their AUSkey. When using an AUSkey to login, the following payroll tax online services are available:
