Book your STP transition early and let us help you with a smooth start to your new financial year.

The ATO announced on 11th March that all employers should report through STP commencing 1st July 2019. The good news is that Jobpac Connect is “STP ready” and we can help you with a smooth transition. Read on for recommended, tried and tested, transition steps. We recommend you book assistance early to reserve your place in the busy year end period.

Jobpac Connect STP Is ready for you 

80 plus Jobpac Connect customers have already successfully transitioned to STP following the tried and tested transition process below, and are now submitting every payday directly to the ATO using Jobpac Connect web services technology.

Payroll, perhaps unfairly, is not known to be the most glamorous module, let’s admit it, but if there is anything that can make Payroll exciting again then it is this piece of technology. Make no mistake this is some really cutting edge stuff, using web services to transmit data securely to the ATO, seamlessly through a Sending Service Provider with near real-time status updates as the submission moves through to ATO approval. As with all good design, what may be hugely complex under the covers, to the Jobpac Connect customer the complexity is invisible and STP submissions are handled simply, and entirely within the Jobpac Connect product.

Transition is easy, we have documented the process and will support you throughout transition.

Viewpoint has completed an agreement with OZEDI, a compatible Sending Service Provider (SSP), and a Viewpoint branded customer portal is available to accept your OZEDI Registration now (Details below on how to register with OZEDI.) Sending Service Providers are required for STP API transmition and our consultants can tell you more.

Transition to STP

It is a fairly simple process to transition to STP with Jobpac Connect but you will need to book time with us when you are ready to commence. Jobpac technicians will need to activate web services in your environment and we will assign a Jobpac Consultant to ensure you understand documentation and data preparation requirements before you begin. We will also support you through your first submissions to ensure the smoothest transition possible. We anticipate that the full Transition process will require up to 4 hours of consulting but may vary and you should allow for this in your budget.
