• Browser settings to view and print

    If you're experiencing difficulties when accessing payment slips or using the 'view and print online' and 'printer friendly versions' in the portal, this may be due to the browser settings on your computer. These items open in a new 'pop-up' browser window, which may bet blocked in your browser setting.

    If you are experiencing this problem, complete the following steps:

    Table 1: How to change your browser settings

    Step

    Action

    1

    Open your browser application.

    select the Advanced tab

    scroll down to the Security heading

    un-tick Do not save encrypted pages to disc

    select OK.

    Windows XP and Service Pack 2

    If your operating system is Windows XP and you have installed Service Pack 2 (SP2), the pop-up blocker function is turned on by default. This will block most automatic pop-ups.

    If you experience this, complete the following steps:

    • open Internet Explorer
    • on the Tools menu, point to Pop-up Blocker and select Pop-up Blocker settings
    • in Address of web site to allow, type www.bp.ato.gov.auExternal Link
    • select Add and then Close.

    This will allow Business Portal reports to open in a new pop-up window but will continue to block other unwanted pop-ups.
