Keypoints
  • You can edit the paragraphs that appear in tax notices and tax statements. You need to be an Administrator.
  • You can edit the paragraphs through a combination of entering text and inserting field variables from a list of options.
  • Field variables automatically insert text into the tax notice and tax statement paragraphs from the relevant area in MYOB Practice. For example, there's a field variable that inserts the current due date.

  • Most paragraphs include default text, but editing the paragraphs lets you customise the wording to suit your practice.

Text displayed {{in brackets}} indicates a field variable, which automatically inserts text into the paragraph in place of the field in the output. Some paragraphs include these by default. When editing the paragraph, field variables are indicated by purple text, and you can enter more using the Insert Field drop-down. The available fields are set by what you find in the drop-down.

For example, Tax Notice Type may output as insert the provisional, terminal or student loan notice , depending on correct option in the scenarioas the output text. If you need to change the outputtext that's displayed, you need to change the source data behind of the notice or statement . The available data to output is limited to the fields available in the Insert Field drop-downthat it's referring to.
