Export and import IR10 data

You can import a CSV file into MYOB Practice to pre-fill the IR10 form attached to a tax return. You can get the CSV file by creating the file in a spreadsheet, or by exporting IR10 data from other MYOB software such as MYOB AE/AO, AO Classic or AE MAS.

Importing this CSV file helps you increase efficiency and improve accuracy by reducing manual data entry. You can also override the pre-filled amounts if you need to.

Why you'd want to import IR10 data

The IR10 is a summary of the financial statements that is filed along with a tax return that has a business or rental income. The data includes the profit & loss account and balance sheet, in the format defined by the Inland Revenue. Completing an IR10 form manually from the underlying ledger may take some time, depending on the type of income.

Importing data from the ledger and pre-filling into the IR10 form means you can reduce manual entry, improve accuracy and save time. Importing will also pre-fill the data into the appropriate categories in MYOB Practice.

Creating the CSV file

To create the CSV file, you can export data from MYOB AE/AO, AO Classic or AE MAS, or you can manually create the file in a spreadsheet program like Microsoft Excel.
