Taxation Note is calculating tax at 33% instead of 28%

This support note applies to:

  • AE Reporter (NZ)
Article ID: 38940

In MYOB Reporter version 3.4.4, you may experience the Taxation Note is calculating Prima Facie Income Tax, Non-Deductible Expenses and Non-Assessable Income incorrectly at a rate of 33% instead of 28% in the #Company Financial Statements for the 2017 financial year.

This issue occurs where the tax rate is calculating at 33% instead of the 28%, being the rate applied for the 2012 financial year and onwards.

We have addressed this issue in AE Reporter, version 3.5.100.

Download the latest release on the my.MYOB Product Downloads page, New Zealand.

Prior to this release, to calculate the correct values in the Taxation Note, edit the format to calculate tax using the correct tax rate.
