Single Touch Payroll (STP) Phase – 2 – PeopleSoft HCM

ATO has successfully implemented Single Touch Payroll (STP) phase 1 across Australia effectively from 01-July-2019 which improved the visibility of employee payments that included reporting super and all the legacy payment summary details.

ATO has decided to continue to enhance the STP process with the introduction of Phase 2 with major changes being moving away from the payment summary categorisation of income, to reporting same data items (with validations) by income type.

What does STP Phase 2 involve?

The main objective of STP Phase 2 is to create a baseline data that is appropriate for consumption by various governments’ organisations. Phase 2 involves reporting staff payroll data at a granular level to the ATO. Multiple government organisations have shown interest in sourcing data directly from the payroll to modernise their existing processes.

STP Phase 2 – What’s changing?

The following categories will be further classified as per the table below:

Gross Income

 

  • Overtime
  • Paid Leave (Multiple Leaves)
  • Salary Sacrifice (Multiple Salary Sacrifices like Super, Laptop etc)
  • Bonus & Commissions
  • Director Fees
  • Gross Income (Excluding above payments)
Allowances
  • Car Expense
  • Laundry Allowances
  • Meal Allowance
  • Travel
  • Accommodation
Lump Sum Payments
  • A new tuple to report various lump sums
  • A new financial year fields for lump sum E payment, to which the payments relate to
  • Remove the need of providing breakdown to employees
Additional Charges
  • Employment Basis
  • Cessation Reason
  • Tax Scale
  • Offset Amount
  • Adding CSA deductions
What to expect?

The ATO will be providing more information in the near future that includes new version of Business Implementation Guide (BIG), new data structure, schema and its validation rules etc. STP Phase 2 is expected to go-live by 1st July 2021.

What it means to the employers using PeopleSoft HCM?

Employers may need to ensure that their payroll business process is in-line with STP Phase 2 requirements to extract the data to send to the ATO.  Early preparation, reviewing your payroll system, up to date knowledge on the new legislation is the key to implement new initiative.

Want to know more?

INK IT Solutions has an excellent PeopleSoft HCM practice to help customers in implementing various solutions especially the Global Payroll module. INKIT Solutions recently also released the bolt-on package for PeopleSoft customers to handle JobKeeper Payments.

Our consultants have implemented STP Phase 1 for various major PeopleSoft HCM customers and their solution included review payroll, proposed recommendations, STP implementation including end of year process (EOY) and reconciliation tools.

The camaraderie between Internet of Things and Wearable Technology

Internet of Things has been much in discussion – both in the office and out of it. Internet of Things has the potential to majorly influence the way we live and work. With the wide scale availability of internet around the world, we stay connected easily and at a cheaper price. Today, more and more devices are being manufactured that can be connected to the internet, and have in-built sensors commissioned in them, thereby building the potential for user data to be utilized for R&D, marketing, pricing and other important functions of a business.

To simply explain, Internet of Things is just the practice of connecting any unique or independent device with internet. This ranges from mobiles, electric meters, washing machines, cars, wearable devices etc. and almost any device that can be connected to the internet.

The hot topic associated with Internet of Things today is the evolution of wearable technology that is constantly innovating and fortifying its connections with Internet of Things. Presently, we are living in a world where every day new devices are being designed to help us lead a healthy life, make us more efficient and improve the quality of life. The evolution of such technology is primarily driven by the integration of sensor technology and wireless networking, enabling the creation of systems that continuously capture and transmit data of almost everything. When it comes to wearable technology, we are able to track our heart rate, step count, body movement and whether we are sleeping right or not. The power to sense, store, and track biometric measurements over time and then run an analysis of the results is what makes the technology interesting.

Wearable technology utilizes the Internet of Things for collecting, integrating and analyzing data gathered by sensors, and when coupled with innovative cognitive capabilities and external factors like weather and environment, one can witness the potential for better management of health, safety and welfare. Wearable technology has forayed into sports and fashion industry, and is constantly carving a niche for itself.

Currently, health and fitness wearables are the first range of wearable technology devices that people will invest in. Nevertheless, users believe that wearable technology will evolve beyond health and fitness, and explore newer avenues. Rigorous and constant experimentation with wearable technology is important for bringing about a more structured evolution to the industry. Amidst growing expectations from users regarding the advancement in wearable technology, businesses also have to think about innovating Internet of Things and its business models, so as to address consumer’s need of multiple devices getting connected to the internet, interacting with the surrounding environment, and receive actionable insights. It can be said that the future of Internet of Things and wearable technology share a symbiotic relationship, and will grow in tandem.

Deciphering the need for mobility in a business

The growth and acceptance of digital technologies has been one of the influential drivers of bringing about transformation across businesses, governments and industries around the world. Mobile technologies have contributed significantly towards this digital facelift, making companies operate smoothly and explore newer sources of revenues. The biggest advantage of integrating mobile technology into business is the quality and scope of engagement it allows the firm to have with its customers.

Over the years, mobile has grown into one of the most important and integral part of any successful business’ communication strategy. It is observed that mobility is leading the charge in driving the digital expansion. This has resulted in organizations channeling their investment and efforts towards adopting enterprise mobility. However, with the growing acceptance of mobility across organizations, the evaluation related to whether a business actually requires this change or not is being overlooked.

With the adoption of enterprise mobility, you aim to address two concerns primarily: efficiency and security in your organization. For any business strategy to be successful, its impact on your clients also need to be evaluated. Today, clients expect real time responsiveness at all times, thereby implying the full time availability of your employees. For your employees to work at full efficiency, they expect to have access to business resources whenever they need it, and that too using mobile devices. Finding yourself a good mobility solution partner can help you in establishing a platform that will automatically discover and identify mobile devices, thereby making mobile device management (MDM) easier.

Understanding whether applications need better management

You should make it a point to find out what applications are being used by your employees and what purposes are being solved through these applications. Running an analysis on your WLAN traffic can help you evaluate this. With the help of traffic monitors built into your network or independent traffic analysis tools, the trend of your employees’ needs can be better understood.
The analysis will lead to rising security concerns. To fortify your enterprise security and infrastructure, you can use a Mobile Application Management (MAM) solution, which helps in controlling which applications can be downloaded and also designate which users and devices can use particular apps.

Evaluating the need to manage data in a better way

If your employees need to use consumer cloud file-sharing applications like Dropbox, Google Drive etc, you should pay attention to how this usage affects the data security of your organization. Additionally, you also need to look into whether the organization needs more stringent control over data to meet regulatory compliances or to protect intellectual information while still allowing employees to transfer data or exchange files from mobile devices.

The availability of Mobile Information Management solutions designed specifically to address the aforementioned scenario. Majority of these solutions allow your staff to safely sync documents across multiple devices and operating systems.

If your assessment indicates the need for an enterprise mobility strategy, you still have to make it a strategic business investment by understanding how much does the strategy relate to your organization’s goals and policies.
