PLEASE READ THE NEW POSTING FOR SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM ON THE SAME SITE
As all those of you in the accounts and audit profession may be aware, the corporate Income Tax returns were due by September 30th and have now been extended to October 15th.
This year, it is mandatory for the returns to be digitally signed for corporate assesses.
If you have followed all the instructions of the IT department and are still getting an error when trying to sign the return digitally - especially if the error is
Can not read the file for signing c:\fakepath\xxxx.xml
The problem is with Windows 7 - the IT departments upload/signing applet doesn't seem to work well with Windows 7 - use Windows XP to upload and sign your return - it will work fine. It is not a problem of your signature or your Java version or browser - use Windows XP and it will be fine.
