10 May 13 ATO responds on auditor contravention reports
The ATO has responded to Member 75's comments about the inability to lodge auditor contravention reports via the Portal - see 2013 TAXVINE No 13 (19 April 2013):
"We refer to the comment made by Member 75 about the inability to lodge auditor contravention reports (ACR) through the tax agent portal. We have issued a number of communiqués to inform tax practitioners of the channels available for lodging ACRs including:
- broadcast - 22 February 2013 titled 'Portal issues now resolved' - a mention of the ACR lodgment at the bottom of that broadcast
- eLink article - 27 February 2013 titled 'Lodgment of auditor contravention reports'
- regular reference via e link to the Systems Maintenance and issues page which contains information on the inability to lodge ACRs via the tax agent portal and alternate channels.
This message will be reiterated in this week's eLink. We will also be writing directly to all tax agents who have lodged ACRs via the Tax Agent Portal in the last 12 months to explain the alternate lodgment channels."
