Q: How to Retore EFTR "SBR Unavailable"?

A:  "SBR unavailable" error on fetch EFTR report can either occur when ATO EFTR service is unavailable or there is no generated EFTR reports for the agent. LodgeiT has a background service that checks if any EFTR report is generated for the agent, so it automatically pulls new EFTR reports from ATO.  

Q: Is it possible to have 2 different trust bank details for tax agent to subscribed to EFTR? 

Answer from the ATO: Agents can only have one trust account per RAN at a time. Prior to subscribing to the EFT report, the agent uses the Manage Agent Trust (MAT) service to provide their trust account details.

The Manage Agent Trust (MAT) service allows Tax Agents to create, maintain and remove a Tax Practitioner's trust account.

Upon providing details of their trust account, this will then enable the Tax Practitioner to receive the EFT reconciliation report which shows details of each EFT refund sent to the tax agent's or BAS agent's nominated trust account.

Note, the EFT report provides details of refunds commencing from the date of subscription is receive.  It does not provide backdated information.
