02 Jul 1010 On what are the system improvements?In last week's TAXVINE - 2010 TAXVINE No 26 (25 June 2010) - Member 189 invited Members to list the improvements from the ATO's Change Program. Sadly, we received only one response, from MEMBER 197:
"I think it is fair to say that the ATO upgrade has enhanced the requirement for me to click more often when attempting to log in, and to click more often when entering my password, ie the security has been upgraded so that you get choices of AUSkey or digital...well I only have "ATO Credential" whatever that is, but I have to "choose" from a list of 1 choice.
Hmmmmmm, well this does come from the group of people that just suddenly decided that unpaid beneficiary entitlements automatically morph into Division 7A loans at lodgment of the company tax return, which appears to have no legislative backing or case law backing, so I guess this lack of upgrade is what you would expect.
Ohh, I remember, you now get more numbers on the taxpayer’s account description, that is also sooooooooooo NOT USEFUL."
