Standard Business Reporting initiative
OSR is one of 13 government agencies partnering in the Standard Business Reporting (SBR) initiative being led by the Australian Treasury.
SBR will ease the business-to-government reporting burden by simplifying forms and using the latest technology and software to enable businesses to pre-fill forms with commonly used data. It also uses transactions that provide instant validation and receipting of form lodgement to save businesses time and money.
SBR allows a single secure sign-on for government online services, meaning only one user ID, password or digital certificate for each agency interaction.
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 any party for the use of the SBR facilities. If there is an expectation of additional payments/cost to your software provider for SBR functionality, this is a matter for each business to consider.
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. It is common to all the government agencies participating in SBR-enabled reporting and over time will allow you to login to a range of other business to government websites.
Is your software SBR-enabled?
You will need to check with your software provider to see which function has been SBR-enabled.
