SSTC Guidance

Please note once guidance notes have been endorsed by the SuperStream Standard Technical Committee (SSTC), it is expected by the ATO, that these guidance notes will be implemented throughout the entire industry. These guidance notes will be assessed annually by the ATO. It is expected if you are unable to implement any guidance note you will contact the ATO to advise the reason of non-compliance and a future implementation plan. If deemed necessary the guidance notes will be included in any updated Message Implementation Guides (MIGS) and therefore enforceable under the SuperStream Standard from the date the updated MIGs are published.
