  • Electronic lodgment service – tax agents

    The practitioner lodgment service (PLS) is replacing the electronic lodgment service (ELS).

    To ensure tax professionals have access to a reliable electronic lodgment service, the ELS will remain available as a safety net.

    Together with digital service providers, we are committed to ensuring the new SBR-enabled PLS is the primary lodgment channel for tax practitioners.

    ELS is an electronic online system that enables registered tax agents to lodge tax returns and other forms, as well as create reports to assist with managing workloads.

    Benefits of registering and using the ELS include:

    • reduction in paper use
    • accuracy – through edit checks within your software
    • choice of digital service providers
    • faster turnaround time on electronically-lodged forms
    • privacy
    • 24-hour access
    • acknowledgment of lodgment.

    The ELS supports a variety of different form types and schedules. The type of information you can transmit is only limited by the form types in your software package.
