Excluding returns from rollover

This support note applies to:

  • AE Tax (AU)

Article ID: 29489

In MYOB Accountants Enterprise (AE) and Accountants Office (AO) Tax it is recommended that prior to installing the new tax release for the new financial year, that you ensure that all relevant returns for closed clients have been flagged to be excluded from the rollover process.

To do this you need to access the current tax ledger that you will roll forward from and perform the Bulk Return Edit routine on those returns that you have identified as to be excluded from the rollover. Once you have installed the new tax release, all tax returns except for those flagged to be excluded will be rollover over.

View the MYOB demonstration on Exclude Returns from Rollover using Bulk Return Edit.
