• Advise us when a return is not necessary

    If your client is not required to lodge a tax return for a particular year or ever, advise us to avoid:

    • compliance action that may take place once the return is overdue
    • preparation, lodgment and processing of a nil return.

    The best way to advise us that a return is not necessary or further returns are not necessary is to use the Tax Agent Portal, practitioner lodgment service or electronic lodgment service.

    If no further returns are required, you also need to remove the client from your client list.
