ROS - Return Preparation Facility (RPF)

The ROS – Return Preparation Facility (RPF) is available since end-November 2022.  The RPF enables ROS agents/advisors and customers to complete forms without being logged into ROS, and to save those forms as files on their local computer and upload the saved files to ROS later on. 

The RPF can be accessed through a link on the ROS Login screen.  Forms prepared and saved using the RPF must be uploaded using ROS Online to Sign and Submit the return (and thereby meet the filing obligation).  

A new Tax and Duty Manual Part 38-06-01B provides detailed information, including screenshots, for accessing and using the RPF.  At end-November the following forms are available in the RPF (as set out in the Appendix to the TDM).

  • eStamping
  • Form 11 2020 and Form 11 2022
  • Form 1 Trust and Estates 2022
  • Form 1 Firms 2022. 

Work is ongoing to develop additional forms in RPF, in line with the regular annual or periodic update of such forms.
