Business Activity Statement

A Business Activity Statement (BAS) is a tax reporting obligation for business. It is issued by the Australian Taxation Office (ATO). BAS statements allow you to let the government know how much money you have collected and how much you have paid out. It covers a wide range of payments, including GST, pay as you go (PAYG) income tax instalment, fringe tax benefits (FBT), fuel tax credits, PAYG tax withheld, luxury car tax (LCT), and so on. GST Registered Businesses in Australia must lodge BAS returns accurately and on time. Consequently, many businesses employ professional bookkeepers to ensure that their lodgments are correct.

Lodging a Business Activity Statement

Lodging online

If you choose to complete your BAS statement form online, you can do so via the ATO’s Business Portal, your myGov account (if you’re a sole trader), or through SBR-enabled financial, accounting, or payroll software.

Lodging by mail

It is also possible to lodge by mailing your completed BAS statement form with the pre-addressed envelope included in your BAS package.

Lodging through a tax or BAS agent

If you have got a registered BAS or tax agent, they can lodge or pay on your behalf. In this case, the agent will take all the responsibilities.
