New version of Income Tax Client Report(ITCRPT) and Activity Statement Lodgement Report (ASLRPT)

We’ve updated the following ATO On-demand reports (Reports> ATO Reports) with the new ATO services and we’ve taken the opportunity to further improve these reports based on your feedback.

Income Tax Client Report (ITCRPT)

·       With the last 4 years of data being returned you can now run a report based on the ATO status(s) you wish to see. For example, you can run a report to display clients with an ATO status of ‘Not Received’.

·       If you wish not to include TFN on your report, you now can select to Hide the TFN when you click Preview.

Activity Statement Lodgement Report (ASLRPT)

·       The ASLRPT has been enhanced to include a lot more information about the AS obligations (such as due date, DIN, period etc). It also now displays a summary of your clients Tax Account balance, AS GST Instalment, PAYG Instalment and more. To see a full list of items included on the report visit ATOASLRPT.

·       Similar to the ITCRPT report, you can also select Hide the TFN option if you do not wish to include your client’s TFN in the report.

Client details comparison (between the tax return & client record details)

If you print the client details comparison report it will now display the print date and time for audit tracking purposes. In addition, all client detail fields across all return types will have the client details comparison report triggered when there is a difference identified.

Postal address for brand new return

Asan end-user who creates new returns using the IITR or NITR form, the postal address fields will remain empty by default, irrespective of whether the postal address checkbox is selected or not. This will ensure that you have control over manually entering the postal information during the return creation process.

2023 Individual returns with Business Worksheet (Item 15)

At Item 15 Net income or loss from business, with in the Business Worksheet, you now can select the business address based on the client’s details recorded. Simply click on the drop-down arrow to select the address type. However, you still can manually enter a different address by selecting the “Other address” option.

Practice report (Reports > Practice Reports)

The Hide TFN option is now available for Practice Reports within the Select Reports window. The Hide TFN option, when selected, will replace the TFN with asterisks (****) where the TFN appears in the report.

We have also added the TFN column to the Lodgement Reports as requested by our users.

Backup default option

Based on client feedback, we’ve added additional options within the Backup utility to allow your settings to be saved, including the ability to restore back to default. The new options are:
[ ] Save my settings                     [ ] Restore default settings
