    Changing your entity's schedule

    If you want to change any of the information reported on the schedule after you have lodged it, you will need to lodge another Reportable tax position schedule 2021.

    Changes to a Category A or B reportable tax position must be provided in section C of the new schedule you lodge. In the Concise description field, enter the RTP number used on the earlier schedule (for example, 2021-× number) and detail the changes.

    Reasonable care

    You must complete the schedule correctly and with reasonable care. Reasonable care means taking the same care that could be expected of a reasonable person in your position.

    Penalties may apply for false or misleading statements.
