Do you use HandiTax? Read this before upgrading to Windows 10

Proceed with Caution #windows10

Sage Handisoft have recently released a warning to its users that their software will not work with Windows 10 at this stage.

The announcement reads:


"As a HandiTax user you would be aware that the ATO uses CISCO VPN software to receive and send ELS transmissions, securely. The ATO has advised that the CISCO VPN software is not compatible with Windows 10. That being the case, if you upgrade to Windows 10, HandiTax 2015 would not be able to lodge returns or receive ELS reports. In order to continue using the ELS functionality, we recommend that you do not upgrade to Windows 10.

Moving forward with the SBR functionality

We are making great progress in building the SBR functionality into HandiTax. These changes will provide benefits such as immediate processing of client updates and other returns at the time of lodgment. The initial pilot of HandiTax with SBR functionality is scheduled for later this year. We look forward to sharing this with you.
