Revenue eBrief: ROS – Return Preparation Facility (RPF) updated

The Tax and Duty Manual Part 38-06-01B has been updated as follows:

  • Paragraph 4 Availability of RPF and Appendix 1 have been updated to include the release date for Corporation Tax Form 2022 and 2023
  • Paragraph 6 Working on the Form - reference to the ‘validation button’ (previous 6.1) has been removed as it is no longer required
  • Instructions on ‘Save As’ and ‘Save’ are outlined in Paragraphs 6 and 6.1.

The Return Preparation Facility (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). 

As newer versions of forms are made available in the RPF, they will not be available in the ROS Offline application.  Over time the RPF will be replacing the ROS Offline application for the majority of forms however, the ROS Offline will still be used for some forms.

Appendix 1 contains information on the specified Form types available in the RPF. Work is ongoing to develop additional forms in RPF, in line with the regular annual or periodic update of such forms.
