  • Update your client list

    It is important to undertake regular reviews of your client list to add any new clients and remove those you no longer represent.

    Lodging a final return or completing a non-lodgment advice does not remove the client from your list.

    You can add or remove clients, or update existing clients' details, using Online services for agents or the practitioner lodgment service.

    New clients

    Your authority to act on behalf of a new client for lodgment purposes only takes effect from the day we receive notice. To ensure new clients are covered by your lodgment program for 2021–22, you must notify us of your authority to act by 31 October 2021. You cannot notify us on the next business day.

    Once you have notified us, you can view copies of their past income tax notices of assessment from 2004–05 onwards and copies of their tax returns if lodged after 2010 in Online services for agents.

    If you accept a new client for income tax purposes after 31 October 2021, you should check the lodgment due date for the client on your client list. If they were previously a self-preparer, they will not be covered by your lodgment program and may need to lodge by an earlier due date.

    If your client has one or more prior year tax returns overdue, their due date is 31 October 2021.
