Validation (FBT)

To validate the return, with the FBT form open and all details have been entered press [F3] or click the Validate icon, then review the Validation Error log.

Dealing with validation errors

Errors are listed in an index with a reference number and a brief description.

To view more details about the validation error, highlight the message and click the Details... button.

To go to the field related to the error, click the green arrow to the right of the error or warning. Alternatively, highlight the message an click the GoTo button.

When the return is error-free and if the Return Properties Lodgment type field indicates that the return is to be lodged electronically, the Complete button is displayed in the left-hand pane of the [F3] Validation screen.

Before you lodge the return electronically, click the Complete button. The return:

  • is allocated a completion code
  • is locked for editing

  • displays the Complete icon in the Select Return Index.

  • can be selected for lodgment.

MYOB Tax gives you the extra security of providing a control record default (for the practice or for individual tax agents) by requiring staff members to key the completion code so that they may tag and output returns for electronic lodgment.
