ABN Lookup

Recently in Training a client asked when keying in details for a supplier “Can it check that the ABN is right”. For years we have had a check that its a valid ABN but no way to check that it was their valid ABN. 

But the info was there online and easy to check so we recently added a quick lookup to check a suppliers ABN is for them. Taking you to the Internet lookup of that ABN. 

Clicking on the link will take you to…


Quick and simple to check if you are worried.

As the end of the year approaches, we are very close to putting this into production but to avoid the risk of fines for being late we have applied to the ATO for a deferment for a few months. I have been advised that even large software houses like Xero have deferred until next December. We will let people know when the testing is completed with the ATO guidelines. 

The main changes relate to the level of detail that the ATO will be requiring.

New Tax Tables

InterAcct Software has the new tax tables based on the changes in legislation.


Changes to personal income tax thresholds announced by the Government during the Federal Budget have been incorporated into the withholding schedules and tax tables and will apply to payments made on and from 13 October 2020.

As the changes to withholding are made part way through the income year, employers and other payers who are unable to immediately implement these changes into their payroll will have until 16 November 2020 to do so.

Employees and other payees will receive their entitlement to the reduced tax payable for the entire 2020–21 income year when they lodge their income tax return.
