If you are lodging via PLS, the ATO advises that the only document that is required by law to be printed is the Electronic Lodgment Declaration (ELD). Both the tax agent and the taxpayer must keep a copy of this ELD for five years and be able to present it to the ATO if requested so to do. See Printing the FBT return for more information.
