Q10: How do we update the postal address in Activity Statement?
A10: The postal addrsss is default from the ATO prefill. Ideally, they must always have the most current information i.e. address. When an AS is created via the Prefill, then most infomation like the address are read-only. Return Integrity check will not update the address due to restriction as above. Also this is to be sent back to ATO within the AS form thus cannot change. However, when an AS is created as blank, then the user can peruse the information from Practice Management. Return Integrity check will update the address to whatever changes occurred
