"I know the ATO is good at its work, but this situation I find unfathomable!

I lodged a client tax return 17 August 2010. Notice of Assessment says it was issued 01 September, and was received in my office 3 September. It was posted to the client that night, therefore could not have been in his hands at least until 4 September. If snail mail was up to standard, maybe even 5 September. My client, owing a remaining small balance to ATO, was quick out of the blocks to make his payment.

So quick in fact, that, according to the subsequent Statement of Account, received today 9 September, his payment to clear the final debt was received on 31 August, effective date 30 August.

How good are the ATO systems to be able to do this??"
