    ATO announces rollout of new online services public beta
    Eventually replacing the tax and BAS agent portals altogether, the ATO has announced the progressive rollout of the public beta commencing this week with all agents expected to have access by March 2019.
    BAS agents will be advised via email when they have access to the new system along with instructions on how to use the new platform.
    Whilst these new services have been in beta for quite some time, the ATO are encouraging agents to use the new services and provide any feedback related to ongoing improvements.  The portals will remain functional in their current format to allow for a transitional time to the new services.
    You can access pre-recorded webinars prepared by the ATO to assist you in navigating the new services.
