  • Prior-year returns and amendments

    The PLS allows you to lodge most prior-year returns. They can be submitted using the PLS, however some returns may require an ELS approval number in order to complete lodgment.

    You will need to retain your ELS registration or register for ELS to be able to lodge these returns. Your ELS registration type must be as a 'transmitter'.

    New functionality in the PLS such as pre-fill, pre-lodge and interactive return checking may not be available for prior year lodgments.

    You may need to refer to your software supporting documentation or contact your software provider to determine which prior-year returns can be lodged by your software package.
