1) Pensioners still working and wishing to use the SAPTO (schedule 2) Lodging BAS with ATO
I am using Reckon Hosted 2023 v1.0.1 - the latest version.
II have done my first pay in STP phase 2. Only known glitch was around pensioners working and decreased tax through SAPTO and LITO. Could be a bit more on preparing for that. Was it available in 2022 Reckon Hosted?
When I attempt to lodge BAS in Reckon Hosted, Internet explorer loads and I am asked to log in with Gov ID, ( see second screen shot) That was successful.
I am then taken to a new ATO page ( see screen shot) which states that the business portal has been retired and I am asked to click "login"
When I click on Login, the next screen (see third screenshot) states that IE version 11 is no longer supported and I need to upgrade to a supported browser.
I have looked up Reckon community regarding this issue. About 2 years ago, the advice was to login to the business portal but the ATO web page states that it is retired.
Despite the ATO stating the business portal is retired, I could log in to the ATO via the ATO business services page again using Gov ID and then under "lodgments", manually entered the BAS numbers and successfully lodged the BAS.
Question: If the "Lodge" button at the bottom of the Reckon Hosted BAS screen does not work because it is using an unsupported web browser, shouldn't the "lodge" button be disabled and a message appear advising the user to lodge the BAS through ATO business services with its URL or alternatively the Reckon software direct IE to open the ATO Business services Page for the user to then login using Gov ID.
It would ideal if the BAS data was uploaded automatically like STP does.
Similarly it would be more efficient if the Super data for the last month/quarter for an employee were also uploaded automatically (and then checked by the person uploading before submitting). Is the ATO not ready for one or both STP and BAS uploading files or is this something Reckon is working on?🙂
