APRA has adopted Standard Business Reporting (SBR), an Australian Government initiative that simplifies business-to-government reporting in a number of ways, including:
- a single secure sign-on to submit reports to participating government agencies called AUSkey. Refer to www.sbr.gov.au for more information; and
- a definitional taxonomy for reporting to all participating government agencies.
