The electronic reporting tool (ERT) is a user-friendly Microsoft Excel file that works on Windows and looks just like our paper financial report forms, yet is simpler and faster to complete because of built-in calculations, validation features and help boxes. The ERT is designed to be submitted by email, which eliminates the need to obtain signatures.
What charities are saying about the ERT:
“I like the ERT because it saves time, paper, postage, and cheques.”
“I really enjoy the ERT and could not imagine having to report any other way. This is so fast and easy and all the calculations are done for you… It really is the only way to go.”
Please download and save the tool below to your computer. If you have never used the LGA’s ERT before, please complete and submit the Request for Electronic Reporting when using the ERT for the first time.
