Machines using virtual network adapters could not use or add credentials. This has been resolved.


Ensure that item 17b in the 2019 IDS form is editable when the question whether the taxpayer is small business (Item 2b) has not been answered 'Yes' and the schedule is required.

Previously, a 'No' response at item 2b was required to enable the question at item 17b, but there were instances where the schedule was required, the question at item 2b was blank, and the question at item 17b should have been enabled.


Ensured that, where the pre-fill statement has a code for lump sum A but the amount is either missing or $0, that the code is not copied across to the return.


Where an individual received a partnership distribution where one or activities of that partnership were in a loss position, in calculating the net small business income of the taxpayer, the programme was adding back the amount of deferred non-commercial losses associated with that activity without taking account of the prior year non-commercial losses brought forward. The programme now correctly deducts the brought forward non-commercial losses of partnership activities in determining the net small business income of the individual.


DIS33 is showing incorrectly. Error is "Reporting party - Contact person telephone number, a value is required in this field". This has now been corrected.
