Warning or error messages
When you ‘Save’ or ‘Sign and Submit’ your Form 11 you may get a warning message. This is to draw your attention to an item or entry in the return that may need correction. If the entry is incorrect you must go back and amend this. If the entry is correct you can continue to ‘Save’ or ‘Sign and Submit’.
An error message will prevent you from saving your Form 11 until an entry is corrected. The field with the error will be highlighted. It may be necessary to go back to an earlier screen to update or amend an entry. For example, you many have to go back to the 'Personal Details' panel to fill in a blank field.
