In order for software products to be able to transmit production data to the ELS gateways, each financial year they must request a new software number. This is initiated by lodging cases for the forms they want to be registered for from the crosscheck cases provided.

The crosscheck process is used to check the ability of your software to lodge forms to the ELS gateways. It is not an approval process for a software package. It is a verification that a software package can lodge successfully to the gateways.

The 2016 FBT (form EB) will be registered under software provider’s (SWP) production software number (ie. 2015). When SWP’s request a ‘development income year software number’ (i.e. 2016), their FBT registration will be rolled over into their new SWP development income year software number.

The crosscheck returns have been loaded onto the test gateway and registrations are now being accepted for the FBT 2016 form.
