We know that many of you have been busy working on your entries for the ACRAs. Now that entries for the ACRAs have closed, you still have time to enter the RTPA.  So, make the most of all the hard work you’ve already put into your entry. With minimum effort, much of it could be adapted to the RTPA!

Entries close for 2024 at midnight, Sunday, June 30. After that you can work on your tax return. Won’t that be fun…

What are you waiting for?
