Hi Team,

 

I was wondering whats the best way to complete tax returns from 2009-2013? My software provider only offers returns from 2014 and the ATO has only given me the option to complete them by paper.

 

My firm is a paperless one so was wondering I can utilise other methods likes another software, the ATO portal or complete the returns on PDF electronically (get the returns digitally signed) and then email back to the ATO?

1.  Download prior year forms from ATO

https://www.ato.gov.au/forms/prior-years-individuals-tax-return-forms---schedules/

 

2.  Fill in and get signed

 

3.  Scan

 

4.  Lodge on ATO Online Services mail

 

Email is not supposed to have TFNs so cannot see that email is possible.
