    What you need to know

    The practitioner lodgment service

    The PLS is the name we use for the channel which has become our main electronic lodgment channel for tax practitioners. The software you use in your practice will be progressively updated to make it ready for you to start using the PLS by 31 March 2017.

    The PLS will gradually replace the old ELS. The ELS will remain available as a safety net to ensure tax professionals have access to an online service.

    Your software provider will let you know when they expect to make this software available to you, and what you need to do to make the transition.

    The transition involves making your software Standard Business ReportingExternal Link (SBR) enabled. SBR is built into business and accounting software, and incorporates standard terms used in government legislation and reporting.

    PLS lays the foundation for significant future opportunities for more services to be provided through your software to improve how you prepare and lodge returns, activity statements and schedules with us.

    Follow the links below to find out more about SBR-enabled software, and what you can do to make sure you are ready for the change:
