To assist clients in utilising the most out of the immigration matter types in LEAP, we have created an information sheet on How to complete an Immigration Law matter (accessible via the LEAP Community page).
The information sheet delves into the various immigration law matter types including:
- Merits Review
- Judicial Review
- Ministerial Intervention
Details of the main tables types and critical dates within these matter types have also been outlined in this information sheet.
For information sheets for how to complete other matter types, please visit the LEAP Community page.
The Content Team have added File Review Date to the Critical Date default scheme. This means this new Critical Date will appear in all new Matter Types created.
To obtain the new Critical Date in your existing matters, you will need to change the Matter Type and then change it back again, this will refresh the Date scheme.
The Critical Date default scheme now consists of:
• Instruction Date
• File Review Date
• Completion/Settlement Date
• Not Proceeding Date
Create an appointment for the File Review Date, or postpone the appointment directly from Calendar & Tasks:
The Conveyancing details layout has been updated to provide for Residential Withholding Tax payments on both sale and purchase matter types. The “RW payment amount” will auto-calculate, based on the completed purchase price, for all items within the drop-down list which includes:
- Fully taxable supply
- Margin scheme
- 10% of GST exclusive market value
When “10% of GST exclusive market value” applies, complete the “GST exclusive amount” to enable the “RW payment amount” to auto-calculate.
To compliment these changes, the GST Withholding notification date has been added to Critical Dates in Calendar & Tasks for both sale and purchase matter types. For more information on setting Critical Dates appointments and Tasks, visit LEAP Communities.
Feedback can be provided on these improvements here.
Two new Matter Types have been created to make it easier for clients to create their matters more in line with the way LEAP works. This is also to ensure that they are using the correct By Lawyers publications. They were Federal Matter Types but are now State based Matter Types. These new matter types can be found here –
- Other Areas of Law > Disputes > Neighbourhood Disputes; and
- Other Areas of Law > Disputes > Defamation /Protecting Reputation
For state-based guides and precedents to be visible from existing matters, LEAP users will need to change their matter type from Other areas of law > Miscellaneous > Disputes to Other areas of law > Disputes > [selecting the relevant new matter type].
