XBRL is the designated SBR standard for financial transactions. Financial transactions include reporting from business and accounting software to the ATO and other SBR agencies, all SuperStream transactions and reporting as well as reporting from payroll systems for example Single Touch Payroll.

Cloud software authentication and authorisation
The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) is streamlining the way businesses and registered agents interact with the ATO via SBR enabled online (cloud) software.


SBR Adopts International eCommerce Standards
The ATO has adopted international eCommerce standards for SuperStream. The SBR program has also announced that it will replace its proprietary interface with the open standard ebMS 3.0/AS4 profile.
This will make it easier for software developers to provide SBR-enabled software and encourage more businesses to take up electronic commerce.
