Hi Toni,

While I can't say I know too much about this one yet, I noted that Reckon APS is listed as an approved AIM-capable software on the IRD info page here -
http://www.ird.govt.nz/news-updates/accounting-income-method-prov-tax.html#03

I'll make some inquiries internally for some more info, I'll come back to you

Thanks Rav, but its looking like it's not a developement within Reckon Hosted which is a shame.

Hi Toni,
Sorry for getting back to you so late on this, yes at the moment only XPA which is part of the Reckon APS suite is AIM-capable. 

Reckon Accounts (desktop), Hosted and Reckon One has been deferred on this, no timeframes on it at this stage.

Thanks again Rav,  but it is a shame, it would be very beneficial to our business (and I am guessing alot of others here in NZ)  that don't need or want to rely on their accountant for compliance throughout the year.  Would be great to be updated if there are any future developments.

Hi Rav, 
The NZ IRD's AIM initiative is going to be a game changer for many of us who are frustrated with provisional tax. 
Please talk with your product team with a view to getting a statement out re the roadmap for AIM. 
I'd love to stay with Reckon One, and would certainly pay for this feature. 
Regards Rick
