Integrating MAS values into AE Tax

This support note applies to:

  • AE MAS (AU)
  • AE Tax (AU)
Article ID: 36401

MYOB Accountants Enterprise (AE) Tax allows you to import values from AE Management Accounting System (MAS) ledgers.  This process transfers the values from the Trial Balance in your general ledger to the relevant items in the tax return.

Once you import the values into AE Tax, if you make any changes in MAS, you will need to perform the import process again to transfer the updated values. 

The process of importing overwrites values already in the tax return for the relevant fields.

Tax Return TypeFields
  • Income tab.
  • Financial tab.
Trust and Partnership Tax Return
  • Income tab.
  • Other Information tab.
  • Business & Professional tab.

The values for an individual return are imported in regard to the Business items tab.  During the import you have a choice of where to import the data into the tax return, either Business income or Professional services income.

  • Business income - Item P8.
  • Personal services income - Item P1 Part B.
