  • Confirmation of lodgment (transmission response)

    When you lodge through the PLS, you should receive:

    • confirmation that the lodgment has been accepted, or
    • an error message if it has been rejected.

    You may also receive warning messages. These are informative only and won't prevent lodgment.

    The PLS uses real-time validation checking; this means that for every tax return, activity statement or form you lodge, you will receive a message response.

    For more information on how transmissions are recorded in your software, contact your digital service provider.

    If you don't receive a success or fail message after lodging a form, you can check Online services for agents to confirm lodgment (or an update to your client list) before trying to lodge again.

    Lodgment reference number

    Lodgment reference responses will vary among software packages. Contact your digital service provider for details for your software package.

    Transaction and response times

    Transaction and response times in the PLS may vary depending on:

    • your software
    • your internet connection
    • the number of lodgments or requests being submitted.

    Complex forms and large batches may take longer to lodge.
