You may experience the situation where specific addresses or no addresses are transferring from MYOB AE Practice Manager to tax returns.

This is usually caused by an issue with the MYOB Administration Centre, or with incorrectly named variables in the system under the Maintenance menu.

In order to resolve this, check the addresses variables; restart the services within the MYOB Administration Centre and then perform a Resync for the relevant clients.

Addresses may not flow through to the Tax return for the following reasons:

Return is completed or lodged

If your tax return status is Completed or Lodged, changes to the address will not flow through to the tax return. You can edit the status of the return to In Progress for the address to flow through. See Changing the status of a tax return or form on how to edit the status of the tax return.

Front Cover field is set to N

In the Front Cover of the tax return, Use Client address? is set to N.

State format is incorrect

The State on addresses integrated to a Tax return must be entered in abbreviated format, for example, ACT, NSW, WA, SA, VIC, and TAS. The full state name will not integrate properly and errors will be visible in the MYOB Administration Centre window and recorded in the IntegrationMonitor.log file eg Address '<client address>", has an invalid Australian State/Territory. Valid states/territories are NSW, VIC, SA, QLD, WA, TAS, NT, ACT.

Edit the address in AE Practice Manager with the correct State format for the address to correctly display on the tax return.
