The Tax table updates are available with the member login area now.  You will need your Customer ID and Password of the renewal notice.

Hi Caroline,

Kylie is right on the money here, I'll just a little bit more to the above as I noticed you mentioned Reckon Accounts 2017.

You need to ensure you have installed and activated Reckon Accounts 2018, the tax update cannot be installed on earlier versions of the software. 

There's more info here -

Thanks Rav, So I need to purchase Reckon Accounts 2018 and cannot continue to use Reckon Account 2017 even if I have less than 5 employees ?

can we update the tax table without having to update Reckon Accounts Premier 2017?

Joanne I agree its a ridiculous amount of money just for the tax tables. There are other payroll solutions you know that might be better value. Payroll Premier allows you to update the tax tables manually.

Hi Kevin- (hope its ok to add to this question) we are in a similar situation where we purchased the program so we don't have to keep paying Through The Roof fees. How can I update just the tax tables for 18/19

Kathy,
If you've completed all your EOFY tasks and you're ready to upgrade then yes all you need to do is to launch Reckon Accounts Hosted 2018 and follow the prompts to upgrade.

Please note, you cannot go back to the previous 2017 version for whatever reason after the upgrade.
