From 1 July 2014, if you lodge your activity statement via an electronic channel the ATO will stop sending paper activity statements. Instead, your next activity statements will become available in an electronic channel.
If you lodge your own activity statements
This change is in line with what already occurs if an activity statement is lodged via the Business Portal, Standard Business Reporting (SBR) and electronic commerce interface (ECI) with one key difference – currently if the ATO do not have your email address, they do not stop the paper activity statement issuing.
From 1 July the ATO will stop sending the paper to all electronic lodgers regardless of whether they have an email address.
