If you answered no to any of these then it may be time to install SapphireOne ERP application. Our ERP plays an integral part of managing supply chain management risk by making the entire chain more visible and resilient to changes in market demand.

SapphireOne ERP Business Accounting Application Version 17: Training Day held on 8th October 2018

On 8th October 2018, SapphireOne Business Accounting Application launched Version 17 in the Ros Packer room of the North Bondi Surf Lifesaving Club.


New features and improvements in Version 17.0.1.0 of SapphireOne ERP Business Accounting Application

Performance improvements

There are some amazing performance improvements in the large processing functions in Version 17. For example, when processing Month End or Business Activity Statement (BAS SBR2), which historically have been two of the more time-consuming processes in the SapphireOne ERP Business Accounting Application, we have seen dramatic increases in performance of up to ten times than earlier versions.

New BAS SBR2 and STP working with ATO, adding your AUSkey to SapphireOne

SapphireOne Version 17 incorporates the ATO Standard Business Reporting SBR2, Single Touch Payroll STP and Tax File Declaration TFN for SapphireOne users who have installed their AUSkey into their SapphireOne datafile. These clients now benefit from what used to be a very time-consuming task with the ATO business portal, where they often had to reinstall java or change browsers frequently so they could lodge their BAS. Now with SapphireOne, there is no requirement for a browser as the interface seamlessly connects to the ATO.

SPS Commerce Fulfilment EDI Integration

SPS Commerce’s integrated end-to-end EDI solution, automatically populates orders into Version 17 of the Sapphire and SapphireOne ERP Business Accounting Application, while checking for errors when sending and receiving transactions. It also verifies that all transactions were sent and received successfully, providing critical process controls for vendors and suppliers. Implementing SPS commerce’s fulfilment EDI has brought many benefits into SapphireOne. It has reduced or eliminated manual data entry, saved chargeback penalties, streamlined inventory management, increased the speed time-to-market (TTM) delivery, boosted productivity without increasing staff, expedited receipt verification, improved record-keeping processes. The overall result is greater competitiveness, which will help SapphireOne users to be a major player in the larger enterprise retailer market.

With the release of Version 17, we have now implemented SDI Single Document InterfaceTraining Day at SapphireOne

Single Document Interface (SDI)

With the release of Version 17, we have now implemented Single Document Interface (SDI). This new interface provides a menu navigator which allows for every data entry screen, inquiry and reporting and processing screens to be opened simultaneously. This is a major advantage for those power users who require to run reports while still being able to make inquiries and process data entry.

Web Pack upgrade

Version 17 of the Sapphire Webpack has seen an upgrade of the original web interface bringing the application a fresher look to users. This includes a scalable interface which allows for minimal change of user interface from smaller devices such as iPhones through to web browsers being used on large monitors linked to desktop computers. Some new features such as the Sapphire Market WebPack, Leave Request, Time Sheets, Stock List and Stock Count have given users more functionality in our popular Sapphire product.

Single Touch Payroll successfully lodged since 1st July 2018

Single Touch Payroll successfully lodged since 1 July 2018
Four of our SapphireOne testimonial clients, Newkem Australia, Monier Prime Rooftiles, Frutex Australia and Moyle Bendale Timber have processed payruns this week and successfully lodged their first Single Touch Payroll (STP) event for the current financial year. Numerous other clients have also successfully lodged their first STP event with the Australian Taxation Office within the first week of its operation.

The Australian Tax Office has made it mandatory for any business operating with a staff capacity of 20 or more employees to implement a working Single Touch Payroll solution on or before July 1, 2018. SapphireOne was certified for this Single Touch Payroll on 1 May 2018.

To assess whether you need to implement Single Touch Payroll on July 1, 2018 you were required to do a count of your Payroll / HR employees as of 1 April 2018.

If this count is 20 or more, then you are a ‘substantial employer’ and will have to report through STP. If it is 19 or less, then reporting through Single Touch Payroll will be optional until 1 July 2019. After that, it becomes mandatory for every employer to report through STP which is of course subject to changes in the legislation.

As part of the Single Touch Payroll process, the ATO matches the information sent through the portal against the corresponding employer/ employee profiles. As a result, businesses will no longer be required to complete payment summaries at the end of the financial year as it will have already been done and available to employees through myGov.

The following are some important aspects for employers to know regarding the Single Touch Payroll process:

  • A regular pay cycle (pay event) is when an employer carries out payroll at fixed regular intervals to remunerate employees. This is usually weekly, fortnightly, bi-monthly or monthly.
  • When you start reporting through your Single Touch Payroll-enabled solution, your pay event will need to include minimum reporting requirements in order for the ATO to receive the file.
  • The employer must report the year-to-date values of gross salary or wages, allowances or other payments (as relevant), deductions and PAYG withholding for each employee included in each pay event.

If you currently fall into the “Substantial Employer” category and do not yet have a solution that works with STP, contact one of our SapphireOne team to go through your options in finding a resolution to your current systems short comings.
