• Return not necessary - income tax

    This screen is used to advise us that a client no longer has an obligation to lodge an income tax return for one or more single years or does not have an obligation to lodge future years.

    Return not necessary 

    If the client does not have an obligation to lodge for one or more single years:

    • select the option under the heading ‘Selected returns not necessary’
    • select the relevant years
    • select Next to submit your request.

    Further returns not necessary

    If the client does not have an obligation to lodge any future income tax returns:

    • select the option under the heading ‘No further returns necessary’
    • select the earliest year the client was no longer required to lodge a tax return
    • select Next to submit your request.

    Superannuation funds

    You cannot submit these requests for superannuation fund clients.

    Under current legislation, superannuation funds are required to lodge income tax returns up until the income year the fund is wound up and the final income tax return lodged.
