easyFBT 2021 change log

November 2023 Release

The following changes and enhancements have been made in this release of easyFBT 2021 (2021.1.0.3):


SBR Interactions

Added the ability to submit (lodge) an amended FBT return without first having to have an existing successfully submitted (lodged) FBT return in easyFBT. To enable this over-ride feature, open the Preliminary: FBT Return tab in your entity and change the Status option to either Lodged, Amending or Re-lodged. Once the status is changed you can create a new Submit (Lodge) interaction in the Electronic Lodgement (SBR) Interaction Manager which will then show the Amendment of submitted (lodged) return screen asking for a Reason for amendment, a revision sequence number (1-9) and the Type of amendment (“Agency Error” or “Lodger Error”).


April 2021 Release

The following changes and enhancements have been made in this release of easyFBT 2021 (2021.1.0.2):


Fringe Benefit Tax (FBT) Return 2021 and SBR Interactions

The ATO Fringe Benefit Tax (FBT) Return 2021 form has been added to this version and can be produced as a paper form for manual lodgement with the ATO as per prior years or when using the Electronic Lodgement (SBR) Interaction Manager to lodge electronically.


SBR interactions in easyFBT 2021 are processed through the latest SBR2 gateway where you are required to Validate (formally Pre-lodge) or Submit (formally Lodge) your returns.


SBR Machine Credential Requirement

If you intend to lodge your FBT Return form electronically then you will need a Machine to Machine (M2M) credential as the previously used AUSkeys have been retired by the ATO as at the end of March 2020. To create a machine credential in the ATO’s Relationship Authorisation Manager (RAM), you must be either a principal authority or a machine credential administrator (MCA) of the business. Note: you will need to create one for each entity that is required to be electronically lodged.
