BAS Accounting

What is a business activity statement?

A business activity statement is a special report that needs to be lodged with the Australian Tax Office that contains information about goods and services tax (GST), Pay as You Go (PAYG) instalments, PAYG withholding tax (PAYGW), fringe benefits tax, and other taxes.

BAS needs to be lodged frequently – usually once per month or once per quarter. More importantly, it needs to be lodged accurately. Mistakes in your BAS can leave you open to penalties, and can be costly and time-consuming to fix.

If you’re ready to let a tax expert handle BAS obligations for your business, get in touch with our BAS accountants today.
