Downloading the new Digital Cert from ROS

By | Uncategorised | No Comments

Revenue require you to download the latest Digital Cert file. It is this new file that you need to use to upload Form 11’s to ROS, or import data into TaxPro PT. Please make sure you download the latest cert and copy it into the correct location. Below are instructions on how to do this.

  • Click on the rounded arrow beneath “Backup”, for the digital cert you’d like to download.
  • Now click on the Backup button, and the new digital cert will begin to download.
  • When your digital cert is finished downloading, find it (most likely in your Downloads folder) and then move it to the appropriate folder. In most cases this is C:\ROS\ROSCerts. Where this is not the case, contact your IT Person or your ROS Certs Administrator to find out where it should go.
  • I’d also suggest you move the old certs to a new location, so they will not appear on TaxPro’s dropdown list when you are choosing your digital cert.

Personal Tax Pro Update Instruction

After you have downloaded the TaxPro PT update file, move it on to your desktop or other appropriate location. Do Not run it directly from the website, as it may be blocked by your security application. Make sure everyone has exited TaxPro PT before proceeding.

  • Double click on the Update file and click “Next” to move to the next screen.
  • Select the “I accept the agreement” option and then click on “Next”.
  • You need to make sure the update is pointing to the correct location. It will automatically pick up the last location that TaxPro PT was opened from. If the location is not correct, click on the “Browse” button and navigate to the PTSQL folder. When you are ready click “Next”.

Please note that you must highlight the PTSQL folder. The update file will not allow you to update to any other folder. If this does happen, a notification will be displayed and you will be given the opportunity to choose a different location.

  • Click on the “Update” button to start the update.
  • Once the update is completed, click on the Finish button to close the update file.
