Dates not available for GST filing

Hi there

I am trying to file my May 18 return, but this is not available on either the online or manual options.  I understand that I may have to roll over year end, but I do not wish to do this yet as I have not completed info for accountant.

Is there a quick fix?

Thanks 

Ceri

Re: Dates not available for GST filing

Hi @Cerian

 

Welcome to the MYOB Community Forum, I hope you find it a great source of information.

 

In order to file the May 2018 GST Return, we would need to have rolled into the 2018 Financial Year. If you are in the FY 2017 year this won't display for you.

 

As the accountant is completing some details for and cannot move directly, a workaround could be to create a "copy" of the file and roll over that copy to run the GST Return and then go back to the "correct" file once completed.

 

This is done by backing up your file and restoring your file with a different company name in your Local Library.

 

For instructions on this, I recommend seeing these support notes:

Re: Dates not available for GST filing

Hi,

 

I have similar question as well, but would like to take the advice of Hayden_B as I just realised I got a copy of our file on my desk top. I am going to change the financial year from one until our accountant is done with our account.

Do you think I should go ahead? I have done the back up and send account details to our Accountant. My fear is that I do not want to re-enter every data I did for the last two months on our GST process.

Thanks.

Hi @heyna

 

Sorry for the delay in answering your post.

 

This is a common scenario at year end, when we need to close the year however need to wait for the accountant. These situations are approached differently, depending on the business's End of Period processes.

 

The most common situation I've personally come across has been to backup a current file and restore this as a new file to allow the ability to generate these reports. Though I will mention in AccountRight 2018, you can also roll back a Financial Year.

 

So if the accountant does come back and asks you to enter an adjustment, you can roll back that year and enter the adjustment and re-close that year.

 

For details on the Rollback function, see this support note: Rolling back a financial year
