20 Apr 11 Melbourne and Waymouth ELS gateways temporarily unavailable
The ATO advises that from 5pm (EST) Friday 8 April, the Melbourne and Waymouth electronic lodgment service (ELS) gateways will be unavailable to all registered tax agents to transmit data. It is expected they will be available again from 7am (EST) Wednesday 13 April 2011. This is due to the progressive move of the ATO's computer systems to a new data centre.
Agents who are assigned Melbourne or Waymouth gateways as their primary gateway will:
- need to download all reports from their mailbox no later than 4pm (EST) on Friday 8 April;
- not be able to request or receive practice management reports through any gateway; and
- need to log onto the Sydney or Brisbane gateways if they need to lodge forms or schedules.
