Based on your feedback we’re developing a Return acknowledgement for all income tax returns where a Notice of assessment or Automatically issued income tax assessment is not issued.
The creation of this new notice was originally delayed due to the urgent COVID-19 changes as well as other important fixes that took priority. We’ve now started developing the acknowledgement, but due to the complexity of testing, as well as changes that need to be made for Portfolio Investment Entity (PIE) income changes, a decision has been made to incorporate this notice into the rest of the annual changes work underway. This will allow us more resources to develop and test the notice, and only have to do it once.
The new Return acknowledgement notice will be available from mid-March 2021 for all income tax returns filed after the date it goes live.
