The new digital instalment notice for quarterly GST and pay as you go (PAYG) instalments has been released on online services for agents.
The ATO said the new instalment notice contains all the relevant information for clients to pay their instalment amounts.
“You can access this notice in OSFA at practice level or with a client in focus through your Communication history and filtering by ‘activity statements’. The instalment notice is also downloadable, allowing you to easily pass it on to your clients,” the ATO said.
“If your client’s registered delivery preference is paper, we will continue to send paper instalment notices. We don’t change their delivery preferences from paper to electronic unless you have lodged electronically.”
Practitioners can also find quarterly GST and PAYG instalment information in the newly improved on-demand outstanding activity statement report in OSFA, according to the ATO.
“This report lists all outstanding activity statements for your clients for the current financial year and the previous three years,” the ATO explained.
“The changes have been made based on your feedback and are designed to help you support your clients to meet their obligations. We’ll continue to work with you to make ongoing improvements to our services.”
