Key items on your PDF statement

Items previously reported

All items from a previous statement that have a balance outstanding will be recorded on your current tax invoice / statement as 'previously reported'. Any item that has become overdue will be marked in bold type.

Refunds

Refunds will appear as a separate transaction to the original sale. All refunds will be indicated by an 'R' following the ticket reference and will state in the transaction details that it is a refund. The value of the refund will reduce the closing balance on your current statement, not the statement when the original sale was made.

Payments

For an unallocated payment, the full credit payment value will be displayed in the balance outstanding column. This will be displayed with a reference of 'On Account'. For a fully allocated payment the balance outstanding column will be zero. For a partially allocated payment the balance outstanding column on the payment will be displayed as the residual amount.
