GST alerts

Filter the activity feed to show only GST alerts. Learn more about each alert type and what you can do with it.

How it works

  • GST alerts only show for returns due after the last finalised return.
  • Alerts show the day after the end of the reporting period.
  • The due date has a built in business day calculator which takes into account weekends and public holidays and correctly shows the next business day.

Filtering

You can filter GST alerts further by sub-type:
