• File attachments

    This screen requires you to attach your private ruling application or objection file and allows attachment of up to five additional files. You must attach at least a private ruling application or objection file.

    Select the link for the help you require:

     

    The portal can accept files of up to 3.7MB each in .doc, .rtf, .xls, .tif, .png, .jpg .gif, .zip, .mpp, .ppt, .pdf, .bmp, .docx, .dotx, .xlsx, .xltx, .pptx, .potx and .ppsx formats.

    We recommend you:

    • provide any image files in black and white with 200 dots per inch resolution
    • ‘zip’ large documents
    • compress images.
     
    To attach your private ruling application or objection file:
    • select the Browse button adjacent to the private ruling/objection application field
    • follow the instructions in the file selection dialogue box to locate and select the file on your computer
    • select the Attach button adjacent to the private ruling/objection application field.

    The selected file will appear in the Attached files box and will be identified as your application. You can only attach one application file.

    To attach additional files:
    • select the Browse button adjacent to the Additional attachment field
    • follow the instructions in the file selection dialogue box to locate and select the file on your computer
    • select the Attach button adjacent to the Additional attachment field.

    The selected file will appear in the Attached files box. You can attach up to five additional files.

     

    If you have more than five additional files to attach, you can use the Further information online form immediately after you have successfully submitted your private ruling application or objection online form. The Further information online form is accessed from the Private rulings and objections start page.

    If you are sending additional files other than through the portal, make sure you include the portal receipt number for your private ruling application or objection on these files. The receipt number is provided on a confirmation screen when you have submitted the online form.

    To remove an incorrectly attached file:
    • select check box next to the file you wish to remove
    • select Remove files. 

    The selected file will be removed from the Attached files box. If you have removed your application file, you will need to attach another file in the private ruling/objection application field.

    To submit your attached files:
    • select Next when the files are correctly attached
    • sign the declaration using your AUSkey as your digital signature.
       

    A receipt number will be provided when you have submitted the form.

    A copy of the submitted form is stored in your Mail – Sent items.  

    Submitted files may fail to transmit successfully. If any of the attached files are rejected, a message will be sent to your Mail – inbox. The message will identify the rejected files and give reasons for the rejection. Rejected file messages will usually appear within a few minutes of submission. However, some may take up to 72 hours.
