Assessments for ACT or IT-CP

If a work item for assessments under

  • ICTA88/SCH13/para 3(2) or (3)(ACT), or
  • ICTA88/SCH16/para 4(1)(b) or (2)(IT-CP)

does not show the month in which the distribution or payment was made, or does not clearly describe the tax as being in respect of ‘distributions’ ‘payments’ or ‘distributions and payments’, send a memo to the Service Office for the information.
