Hi, have heard that using STP locks out our ability to enter W1 and W2 in the online BAS - is this true and if so at what point does that occur?

Thanks

Hi @CraigB,

 

Thanks for your patience whilst we checked in with a specialist area regarding your query!

 

Our intention is to eventually use the STP information to pre-fill labels W1 and W2 on the activity statement.  We’ll be doing this for small and medium PAYG withholders. We will be running a pilot next year with a view that pre-fill will commence some time in 2021.

 

You will be able to amend the prefilled W1 and W2 labels.

 

Until then, you’ll still need to complete these labels on your activity statement. We will share more information as it’s available.

 

Thanks, JodieH.

no never.  We (icb.org.au) have been involved in all the co-design sessions about the pre-fill of the BAS.  The BAS will be pre-filled but you can either verify, accpet or change the values
