The output of your converter does not match the output shown in the Government portal. Is your converter wrong?

Our Converter's output is correct. The usual explanation for the difference is that the file you are converting is old. Please check your file name and make sure that the file was generated recently. For example, if your file name starts with returns_26042018_R2A it was generated on 26-Apr-2018. Even though you might have downloaded your file today, it might have been generated a long time ago.
