Productivity tools

The Standard Business Reporting (SBR) Program has developed a number of software developer productivity tools which also includes various APIs. These tools can be provided to you free of charge and are controlled by a licence agreement (Software Developer's Licence for Standard Business Reporting).

  • SBR has been designed to facilitate electronic integration of business interactions required to simplify government reporting requirements. The SBR Identity Management Client (IMClient) is invoked when businesses using their SBR enabled accounting software seeks to list, prefill, prelodge or lodge a report with an SBR agency via Core Services.
  • The Reference client file provides software developers with a sample implementation file for Core Services 2010. The Reference client shows software developers how to package the XBRL documents into a SOAP message for transmitting to Core Services.
