The Filing Statistics page provides a quick way to:
monitor the filing of returns throughout the practice
help ensure you achieve your 100% filing targets by the end of the financial year.
The statistics are calculated for a selected tax year and include:
The number of filed returns as a percentage of the total returns due to be filed in the selected tax year
This shows the number of returns with a status of filed
This shows the number of returns still to be filed
This shows the total number of returns to be filed for the selected tax year based on the number of clients with the Return required flag selected on the Client page Tax tab.
The total statistics for the entire practice are calculated and displayed at the bottom of the table. The statistics don't include clients that:
have return type PTS
aren't required to submit a return for the selected tax year
have First return year set to a year later than the selected tax year
don't have an extension of time
have been sent an L letter or D letter, or
These flags are set on the Client page Tax tab.
If you're viewing statistics for the current tax year, the statistics are calculated for the partial year up to, and including, today’s date. When the comparison statistics are generated, they're calculated for the same date range in the previous year, so that an accurate comparison is displayed. For example, if you display the statistics on 24th November of the current year, the comparison statistics will be calculated up to and including the 24th November for the previous year.
If you select a prior year in the Tax Year drop-down list and compare these to the year before, (e.g., 2012 to 2011) the full years statistics are displayed. This means that the statistics displayed for the previous year are different when displayed in the last year comparatives section compared to when that year is selected from the Tax Year drop-down list.
On the toolbar, from the Tax drop-down list, select Filing Statistics. The Filing Statistics page appears. By default the filing statistics for the previous tax year are displayed and calculated for each agency.
To calculate filing statistics for partner, manager, agency and return type groupings:
Select any combination of the checkboxes at the top of the page.
Click Calculate. The information displayed is updated to display:

filing statistics calculated for the groupings indicated by the values in each row of the table. The groupings you select will be saved when you close the Filing Statistics page and automatically applied when you open the statistics next time.
