Auskey issues   ( KB# 17988 )

We have had several users report receiving the following error during lodgement of the individual return:

“CMN.ATO.AUTH.007 – You do not have the correct permission to submit this request or retrieve this file. This is an issue caused by the default AUSkey permissions set by the ATO.”

Fix: To correct this issue, users must log into the ATO access manager website, go to ‘Access and Permissions’ and ensure the 2 tick boxes for Individual tax returns are ticked for each credential.
