The error message “Unknown column 'BAccount.CompanyID' in 'on clause” could appear when attempting to print the BAS report on the Release Tax Report screen (TX502000). This has been resolved.

If you have customised the BAS report, you will need to revert the report to the default version to pick up this fix, then re-apply the customisations. MYOB recommends against customising the BAS report.
