Practitioner lodgment service

Last updated 13 November 2023

The practitioner lodgment service (PLS) is an online lodgment channel for tax and BAS agents (registered agents).

It enables tax and BAS agents (registered agents) to:

  • lodge forms including tax returns, activity statements and schedules
  • access services such as client updates and direct debits
  • download reports and lists.

The PLS uses Standard Business ReportingExternal Link (SBR) to lodge and interact with the ATO. Your software must be SBR-enabled before you can use the service.

This guide supplements the supporting documentation provided with your software.

Some features described in the guide may operate differently or be unavailable in some SBR-enabled software packages.
