GDPro GO - Excel Reporting

17. February 2020 22:59 by Admin | 0 Comments

For our GDPro GO cloud customers:

Copy the latest backup to your desktop by right clicking the backup file and click copy, then on your actual desktop (not the cloud desktop) right click and paste.

Double click on the zip file to open it

An example, a customer wanted to search for 2003 in the share comments

Drag and drop the shares file to your desktop and double click the shares file.

Use Excel’s filter function.

I did using 2003 and it found no matches.

This makes it really easy for you to do your ad-hoc queries without technical jumbo!

Each owner that is to have its RWT and NRWT imported into IR Filing requires at least one of contact address, email address or phone number.

NRWT and RWT IR Filing Preparation

Some preparation in your database required before using IR Filing, as follows:

1. Trust Group Contact Details

IR Filing requires the trust group’s IRD, contact person and contact number. The Update Trust Details button is for quick access to the trust group maintenance screen to update these details if required.

2. Owner Contact Details

Each owner that is to have its RWT and NRWT imported into IR Filing requires at least one of contact address, email address or phone number.

3. Owner Country Code

NRWT IR Filing requires country code for each owner that has NRWT.

A list of valid country codes are here:

https://www.ird.govt.nz/income-tax/withholding-taxes/non-resident-withholding-tax-nrwt/deduct-nrwt-at-the-right-rate/nrwt-country-codes

AU for Australia is the typical country code. The following is how it’s entered into your database and then allocated against NRWT owners.

Select List then Regions

 

Enter AU for Region Code and AU for Region Description, then click Tab key two times.

 

Search an owner that has RWT and allocate the country code via the Region drop-down selection, then click Tab key:

GDProIR_NRWT_Report

This is the same as the new CSV version of the distribution report without the payment info and for owners with NRWT. This may have more owners than the file used for IR Filing importing, as it contains all owners and not just those with contact information.

GDProIR_RWT_Report

This is the same as the new CSV version of the distribution report without the payment info and for owners with RWT. This may have more owners than the file used for IR Filing importing, as it contains all owners and not just those with contact information.

IR File Production

The following screen contains entries to be provided by your accountant. Enter the values once obtained and the simply click IR Files to create the 5 CSV files.

This can be a lot to take in. Please have your accountant assist with registering, setting up and using IR electronic filing. During April, May and June 2020, we expect an influx of queries. Please allow up to 5 business days for a response.

If possible, try and get the IR Filing registration and setup done as early as possible, before April 2020.

Notes

  • IR Filing requires trust group IRD.
  • IR NRWT Filing system expects shares to be whole numbers. 1 is used for those shares less than 1. IR NRWT Filing also requires the shares to be rounded to the nearest whole number. IR NRWT Filing tests rejected share fractions.
  • IR Filing of Multiple distributions is possible. The IR Filing record identifier includes the shareholder ID and the distribution date as this combination distinguishes between the different distributions.
  • IR filing only accepts distributions made after 2015.

Trust Removal

18. November 2015 01:03 by Admin | 0 Comments

Removing a trust requires a backup of the database, the trust id and name. There is no downtime in order to remove the trust as we will send an application that will process the trust removal from your specific SQL Server and GDPro/GDMA database.

Removing the trust removes everything pertaining to it such as owners, aliases, trustees, distributions, payments, successions, grants, shares and financial history. Once removed, the information is no longer retrievable.

We have an automated process to do the removal. It requires reviewing (and development if required) before each use to ensure any database changes (new fields or tables, for example) that may had been made since the last time it was ran, are covered.

The reason we require the backup of the database is so we can test the removal process is only removing information pertaining to the trust.

GDMA purchase is required if the trust is to be transferred to another organisation. A fee applies if the trust is to be transferred to an organisation that currently has a GDMA license. Please let us know if this is required.

Whats the difference between GDMA and GDPro?

28. August 2015 07:16 by Admin | 0 Comments

The differences mainly is the technology behind the scenes and that GDMA has all the new development invested in it. We kept GDPro for our customers that prefer no change. You will get both versions – however GDPro requires MS Access 2012 32 bit or before. It will not work with MS Access 2013, hence GDMA.
