From version 6.3.47, fuel tax rates are automatically updated as part of your Agrimaster Auto-Update.
You can still manually add the new Fuel Tax Rate if required. The new Fuel Tax Rate can be obtained from the ATO website.
Be aware that once you update, any rates entered manually in the past will be overwritten and any missing rates will be added. If there was no fuel tax rate entered or an incorrect rate was entered for a closed period, the update will not make any changes to the closed BAS periods.
Should you need to make changes to fuel tax rates in closed periods, please contact your accountant for assistance.
To add a new Fuel Tax Rate:
- On the Home Page, click Setup and Tools
- Click Cashbook Setup
