  • Lodge an activity statement

    The Activity statement option in the Business Portal menu is your starting point for lodging or revising most types of activity statements online. When you lodge online you'll receive a receipt to confirm that your activity statement has been lodged. You can also view and print statements you've previously lodged.

    Once you lodge online, you will access all future activity statements through the portal. We will no longer post activity statements to you, and will notify you by email when your activity statements are available for you to access and complete online.

    Activity statement information is displayed as either Not lodged or History.

    From 1 July 2017, we'll be introducing changes which will transform the look of a number of screens. This will make it easier to lodge your activity statement via the Business Portal.

    Streamlined lodgment process

    From 1 July 2017, you will no longer need to re-enter your AUSkey or myGov credentials to declare that the information provided in your activity statement is true and correct. You will just need to tick a declaration checkbox which will save time and effort.

    Simpler BAS

    From 1 July 2017, the Business Portal will also be tailored to reflect the Simpler BAS changes for small businesses. Only fields that you are required to complete will be visible.

    Improved save function

    From 1 July 2017, users will be able to save a partially prepared activity statement then resume it on any computer using the improved save function.

    Not lodged

    Activity statements that have not yet been lodged are displayed as Not lodged. Once it's past the due date, activity statements will display as overdue.

    To complete your current activity statement, click on it under Description.

    Improvements to the Business Portal from 1 July 2017 will mean that you can lodge a nil business activity statement (BAS) at the click of one button on the 'Prepare activity statement' screen.


    All activity statements which have been lodged, processed, cancelled or discontinued in the last two years are displayed under History. To see activity statements for a different period, filter the date period on the screen.

    To view an activity statement, click on it under Description. To revise an activity statement, click the Revise button. Only activity statements that are eligible for revision will display the Revise button.
