Annual return pdf lodge on paper

Can you lodge a PDF of BGL generated annual return on paper with ATO? This may need to be done if electronic lodgement not possible in some circumstances.

yes…I have done that…months before the latest version of the software could generate a “current year” return…and months before the latest “approved audit report”…and used a pdf editor on the last tax year return and edited for current year …ATO accepts these in my experience…they do take a while to process them…but it’s great in that you can wind up a fund COMPLETELY in the current year without waiting for software to be developed
