ATO server down for maintenance 24 Dec - 2 Jan
Updated: Dec 13, 2019
Due to system upgrades, the ATO's server will be down from 24 December to 2 January.
As a result, you will not be able to submit any STP reports during this time.
Any pay events during this time that are missed because of the shutdown can be reported after 2 January.
The ATO has stated that there will be no penalties for missed or late reports during this period.
Payroller can still be used during this time to create the pay runs and produce payslips. The only function that will not be available is ATO reporting.
If you try to report STP during this time, you will receive an STP Failed message.
Please note that you will still need to send a report for any pay runs during this period. However, this can be done after the shutdown period.
