Verify ATO Listing options
Update ALS levels: Tick this checkbox to compare the tax level on the ATO listing with the level in Tax. If it does not correspond, the return is updated with the new level.
Verify Lodgment status: Tick this checkbox to verify that the status of the return is lodged. If it is not, update the return to lodged status.
Lodged as at what date: Enter the date from the ATO listing so that returns lodged after that date will not appear as exceptions. Enter the date in the format DD-MM-CCYY.
If you are printing a listing of returns that are not lodged, click Delete to clear the date from this field. Otherwise, simply enter the date of the ATO listing.
Redefault date due: Tick this checkbox to update the due dates when tax levels have been changed (through the Verify ATO Listing Routine).
If you do not elect to update levels, or if the level of the return in Tax is correct, the due date will not be updated.
Tax File Number: You do not have to key spaces in the TFN, Tax will automatically format them. If the tax file number keyed does not match any return on the system, the following query displays: Tax File Number not on System. Re-key? Answer Yes, or No.
If you have retained a list of TFNs from a previous print then any TFN you enter in the current print are added to the list to be verified.
If no TFNs are specified then all the returns will be verified.
You cannot click OK to proceed to the report from the TFN field. You must click [Tab] or [Enter] so that the TFN is matched against the returns in the ledger before the report can commence.
ATO Level: For each TFN specify the ATO level if any. This is a one character field requiring a number between 0-8. At this field click [Enter] to add another TFN or click OK to indicate the list is complete.
