Label A1 - Document Identification Number (DIN)

Enter the document identification number. The ATO will issue these numbers before the date the activity statement is due. The due date depends on the frequency of lodgment that was elected at the time the ABN was registered. You can have all activity statements pre-filled automatically from the Activity Statement Client Lists AB and AI. For information on this update function refer to ATO Reports.

Ensure that the DIN is different for each activity statement lodged for your client. If you are in doubt, check on the Tax Agent’s Portal.

Revision Type Indicator

Do not enter a revision number if this is the first activity statement for the period. If you revise an existing activity statement, the revision number is controlled by the ATO system. If the client is new and has previously lodged a statement for the same period, then you must seek to find out how many times the particular statement has been revised in order that it will be accepted when you lodge via ELS. Up to nine revisions of the original Activity Statement may be lodged.
