CMN.ATO.GEN.XBRL04: A mandatory field has not been completed - No value is assigned.
This ATO generated error will occur if a field in The SMSF Annual Return contains:
- Incomplete fields;
- Letters in numeric or date fields;
- Spaces in invalid fields (for example an additional space between digits in a phone number);
- Numeric digits in letter fields.
The above list is not exhaustive. Additional invalid data errors may generate this error.
To pinpoint the invalid data contained in the message, select the expand icon:
This will expand the error to show the affected field(s):
In this example, the Tax Agent's (lodging party) phone number area code in Section K was input in the wrong field (subsequently leaving the area code field blank) when setting up the contact.
This field is greyed out in The SMSF Annual Return, so the Tax Agent contact details will need to be edited in the Contacts screen. Re-write the phone number of the contact and ensure the area code has been input in the correct field.
Once the contact has been updated you will need to select Update Lodging Party prior to re-validating the SMSF Annual Return.
- Go to Compliance | Tax Compliance.
- Under the SMSF Annual Return menu on the left hand side, select Section K (Declarations).
- Select Update Lodging Party. Continue with the Electronic Lodgement process.
- Re-validate the SMSF Annual Return. See Electronic Lodgement.
