Does anyone know how we include a CAC Account number when lodging PAYG Payment Summaries via EmpDupe file to the ATO?
We pay wages on behalf of a client and need to specify the CAC Account extension to their ABN in order for the PAYG Payment Summaries to be applied to the correct CAC Account.  CAC stands for 'Client Activity Centre'.

I attempted to enter this into the ABN cell in the Company Information tab, but the cell does not allow for any extra numbers.
Thank you.

Hi Belinda

CAC is also known as branch. In file -> preferences you will see a option called files. In there you will see a area called EMPDUPE and in there a number which has 001 by default - this is the branch number. If you change this to 003 for example it will report as branch 3

Hope that helps
