Lodgement Dashboard - BAS (2023)
The import ATO data routine was overwriting formulas in the 3 reporting level columns in that worksheet, resulting in a failure to match any of those levels with the relevant activity statements on the dashboard. That issue has now been fixed.

BAS JobPapers (2024)
We've made some minor formatting changes and added links to YouTube videos on sheets containing instalment variation calculators.

Hire Purchase Calculators (2023 and later)
With the exception of the Hire Purchase Summary and Hire Purchase Payout calculators, each calculator can now be used for any contract date on or before the year end of that calculator. e.g. For a contract beginning on 15/02/19 you can now use the 2023 or 2024 calculator. Previously you had to navigate back to the file for the financial year during which the contract began (2019 in our example).

The Journal worksheet now reconciles journals with the schedule.
