The Standard Business Reporting (SBR) initiative is a multi-agency initiative led by Treasury that will simplify business-to-government reporting in a number of ways. This will include the introduction of a single secure sign-on to submit reports to APRA and other SBR-participating government agencies. APRA will provide information to its regulated institutions in due course on the implementation of the SBR initiative, which involves all of APRA's reporting forms and will provide significant long-term benefits to institutions.
