I often get asked if it is worth upgrading to the new version of your chosen software – is it worth the money as well as worth the new features or ability to meet new reporting requirements? There are always people in a range of situations from “Yes it is imperative” to “No it is a rip-off”. Ultimately you have to decide yourself, but with changes to forms (ETP this year), the authorities will eventually tell you they cannot accept the older versions – so we always have to move with changes eventually!
A Couple of Reasons to Move Up This Year for July 2013
1. Taxable Payments for the Building and Construction Industry
From 1 July 2012, businesses in the building and construction industry need to report the total payments they make to each contractor for building and construction services each year. The first report needs to be made from 1 July 2013 and Accounts Hosted 2013 provides you with the ability to prepare the report.
2. Employment Termination Payment (ETP) Updates
The ATO has made changes to the ETP Cap, the ETP Payment Summary and EMPDUPE file to include a reason flag. These changes have been implemented in the new MYOB and Accounts.
