REMINDER: 2021 School Year portal closing to make way for 2022 data!

Home > Blog > REMINDER: 2021 School Year portal closing to make way for 2022 data!

Many thanks for your support of the Financial Survey for Schools (FSS).

In preparation for the current year’s survey, at 5pm Friday 21 April 2023 we will close Option 1 Enter Financial Data – 2021 School Year on the FSS portal. You will still have access to your 2021 school-year reports (Options 2 to 10 on the Somerset portal) until early July 2022.

This means that after 21 April 2023, you will no longer be able to enter or change 2021 school-year data.

If you do not have a copy of the 2021 data, please go to Section 10 of the survey (via selection 1 on the portal) to download a pdf version — see screen shot below:

Data input for the Financial Survey for Schools is based on the latest Commonwealth Financial Questionnaire which should be available soon. We plan that from Wednesday 26 April 2023 you will be able to enter the 2022 school-year data into the FSS. And we aim to have 2023 reports (2022 school-year) available from 1 August 2023.

We thank you again for your continued support of the Survey. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us either via phone 1300 781 968 or email
