Revenue doubles online SA returns

The latest figures for online self-assessment returns filed with the Inland Revenue for 2001/2 have more than doubled those of the previous financial year.

The past fortnight has seen a host of IT problems which forced the Revenue to request people to avoid using the system between 7pm and 11pm.

But a figure of 150,327 returns by midnight Sunday will come as a huge relief to both the Revenue and integrator EDS.

A spokesman for the Revenue said it was very happy with the ‘massive’ improvement on last years figures and ‘would like to think that its teething problems were behind it’.

But he would not say how many people the Revenue expected would use the system during the next financial year.

He also confirmed that the recommendation to avoid filling out forms between 7pm and 11pm no longer applied. ‘The problems with the infrastructure were purely because of the end of September deadline,’ he said.
