As I understand it, users of AccountRight Enterprise v. 19.14 have been granted a STP deferral until 31st May 2019
We do not use either multicurrency or negative inventory. Does the product still qualify for the deferral if these functions are not being used or is it necessary to upgrade to a later STP compliant product?
AccountRight v19 users have been granted a deferral for STP reporting as long as they are using multi-currency, negative inventory, multi-location inventory, M-Powered Payment or ODBC add-ons. If you weren’t using any of these and could upgrade to AccountRight 2018 then we would encourage you to do so to remain compliant.
If you didn’t want to move to a compliant version, then you would need to look to see if there were any compatible third party services to allow lodgement of that information with the ATO.
Thanks for your answer
Looks like I will be upgrading
If you tick the Negative Inventory preference (Setup > Preferences > Inventory) then technically your file cannot be upgraded to AR2018. Later, when ready to upgrade, you can turn that preference off (provided there are no negative inventory items at the time). Plus I don't think anyone is going to come to your office and check that you actually have negative inventory transactions (or multi currency for that matter).
Just a thought. Buy yourself some time to May 2019 - hopefully the issues with larger files will be resolved by them.
