Once you have completed these (if required), click ‘Next’.
The Returns Summary section will show the total of all gifts and loans that you have already reported as received during the period. There is one field to fill in:
- Under Threshold Amount: Enter the total of all amounts received during the reporting period which are $5,000 (indexed) or less.
An audit certificate is required for returns.
Users have four options for the audit certificate:
Option 1: Click PACA to submit your return now and attach an audit certificate at a later date, but by the due date.
Option 2: Click Attach Audit Certificate to complete submission of the return and certificate.
Option 3: Click Request an Audit Waiver to request to waive the audit certificate requirement. You need to state the reason you are requesting this with any other supporting documentation.
Option 4: Click Request an Audit Deferral to defer submission of the certificate. In your request, you should indicate the proposed date for deferred submission of the audit certificate. Note, the audit certificate can only be deferred up to a maximum of 30 days.
