• Itemised account by ATO processed date

    This screen displays transactions for the account type selected. You will be able to view transactions on an account processed within a date range. The transaction list can be sorted into either process or effective date order.

    There are two parts to this screen:

    • account payout summary
    • transaction list.

    Transactions on this account type can be viewed in two different ways:

    • by Australian Taxation Office (ATO) processed date
    • by income tax year.
     

    Account payout summary

    This section provides a snapshot of the account, including a balance and the payout amount. It appears in the top right of the screen. If the ‘To’ date is before today, the account payout summary is not displayed. To view calculation details relating to an estimated general interest charge, select the hyperlinked amount.

    The account payout amount and the estimated general interest charge (GIC) are not available for all accounts from this screen. If they are not provided and you need the details contact us using ‘Messaging’ located on the left navigation bar or by phone.

    Screen fields

    Opening balance

    This is the sum of all transactions on the account processed before the ‘From’ date.

    Closing balance

    This is the sum of the opening balance and all the transactions displayed in the list.

    Estimated general interest charge

    This is the estimated general interest charge (GIC) calculated on the account (where applicable) to the proposed payout date. To view calculation details relating to an estimated GIC, select the hyperlinked amount.

    Total payable if paid on date

    This is the sum of the closing balance and the estimated GIC. Payment of this amount on the payout date will bring the account balance to zero, unless other transactions are processed in the interim. The estimate may be affected by subsequent transactions being applied to the account

    The default payout date is today’s date or you may select a payout date in the future.

    A credit amount will include a ‘CR’ suffix

    Transaction list

    Provides details of transactions processed on an account.

    Screen fields

    Transactions processed by the ATO during the period from <date> and to <date>

    Select a different period by changing the ‘From’ and ‘To’ dates. The date can be changed by selecting the down arrows in each of the drop boxes to display the required period.

    The default ‘From’ date will be the date of the thirtieth most recent transaction on the account – or the earliest transaction if less than 30. The ‘To’ date will be today’s date.

    Go

    Select the Go button to refresh the transactions for the period displayed.

    Process date

    This is the date the transaction was processed by the ATO.

    You can sort the transactions into either process date or effective date order by selecting the column heading.

    Effective date

    This is the date the transaction affected the account. For debit amounts, it will reflect the due date, allowing for weekends and public holidays. For payment and credit transactions, it is the date the payment or credit was received or notified. The date is used for calculating GIC where applicable.

    You can sort the transactions into either process date or effective date order by selecting the column heading.

    Transaction description

    This is the description of each transaction type.

    Depending on how the transactions are sorted (process date or effective date), the description displayed may change. For example, activity statement obligations will appear grouped under a heading when sorted by processed date and will appear separately when sorted by effective date.

    Debit amount

    This is the amount of a debit transaction. You owe a debit amount to the ATO.

    Credit amount

    This is the amount of a credit transaction. The ATO owes you the credit amount.

    Balance

    The account balance after each transaction. A credit balance will include the suffix ‘CR’.

    Opening balance

    The opening balance appears as the first transaction on the list. It is the sum of all transactions on the account processed before the ‘From’ date.
