Mike Leditschke (BIO)
Standard Business Reporting Architect
As the Standard Business Reporting architect, Mike offers a unique perspective on the predominantly open source development project.

The Australian Government has a problem. Business are complaining about their reporting compliance burden and internally the government administrative officers must manually enter the details from tens of thousands of business documents per month into their systems – at great cost and risk of error.  Thousands of support calls are made each month, many due to these avoidable errors.

The promise of the  Standard Business Reporting (SBR) initiative is it will help, both business and government, to save time, reduce errors and provide certainty that reporting obligations have been met by streamlining business-to-government financial reporting processes.

Philip Hind (BIO)

ATO First Assistant Commissioner Superannuation

Philip leads the Data Standards and E-Commerce project that will implement SuperStream reforms, set to radically improve superannuation industry business processes and streamline communications between businesses and superannuation funds.
