Accountants Daily understands a number of tax agents have raised the issue of their lodgement list displaying a 31 October due date for a number of their individual clients despite having no outstanding tax returns for previous years.

The 31 October lodgement due date is for all individuals and trusts where one or more prior-year tax returns were outstanding as at 30 June 2019 and clients prosecuted for non-lodgement of prior-year tax returns.

The ATO has acknowledged the issue and will update the relevant concessional due dates by the end of July 2019.

“The ATO is aware that for a number of agents, individual client lodgement due dates as reported in the Tax Agent Portal and Online Services for Agents are currently reflecting the October 31 statutory due date,” the ATO said.

“The actual lodgement due dates will be made available in the Portal and Online Services for Agents by the end of July 2019. 

“There is no need to take any action to make any changes to individual client lodgement due dates and agents should continue to plan their lodgement work according to their normal lodgement program.”
