Hi @SynjonFraser88 

 

Online amendments are generally processed within four weeks, but they can be delayed if you've submitted multiple amendments.

 

A status of 'balancing account' is usually a positive sign that it's nearing the final stages, but you should continue to monitor the progress of your returns online.

 

Once it updates to 'issued' or you see an 'EFT refund' transaction in your income tax account, this usually means it's all done.
