31 Oct 11 Processing system upgrade for PAYG and FBT instalments
The ATO advises that it plans to upgrade its processing system for pay as you go (PAYG) and fringe benefits tax (FBT) instalments in late December 2011. It expects the impact on agents to be relatively minor. The upgrade is planned to occur over the ATO's regular Christmas-New Year closedown.
Over the coming weeks, the ATO will be informing agents of how this upgrade will affect:
- ATO systems availability
- ATO form processing
- what some taxpayers might see when they receive their instalments notice.
Some early information is available on the ATO's System maintenance and issues page (click on "Processing system upgrade for PAYG/FBT instalments") and the ATO says that it will be publishing regular updates.
