2.1 How do I choose a reporting date?

Your workplace profile is a snapshot of your workforce on any one date during the preceding 12-month reporting period. The reporting period is the same each year, from 1 April (the previous year) to 31 March.

The profile is not a total or average number, but an actual headcount of all your employees on that date.

For the 2019-20 report, you will need to select a date between 1 April 2019 and 31 March 2020

For remuneration data, you can choose either:

  • the 12 months before the date you choose for your snapshot
  • the financial year that ends during the reporting period, including the months that fall outside it

Important note

The 2020 reporting period remains the same as previous years (1 April to 31 March), despite the extension to the submission deadline
