11 Feb 11 Our fault - new system - you need new TFN and new ABN!

"Had an interesting client issue today. The ATO have advised the client that after 10 years of using the same TFN and ABN, they have to reapply for a new one and deal with the inconvenience this is going to cause.

The issue is that the old system incorrectly recorded their entity as a trust and not a Partnership. It has been able to lodge ITRs as a Partnership in the old system but the new one is unable to. Apparently there is no resolution except applying for a new one. Clearly the new system can't just recategorise the old TFN and ABN as a "Partnership".

Obviously, the new system is so sophisticated it can't handle something as simple as recategorising an entity type."
