How to lodge your BAS
You can lodge electronically, by mail or over the phone (for nil lodgments), but you must lodge on time to avoid penalties.
You can lodge your business activity statements (BAS) online:
We will send you a notification to advise you when your activity statement is available.
The only electronic lodgment method for the GST Annual Information Report (Form Q) is via ELS. When using our online services for individuals, you can view your Form Q lodgments from the ‘History’ list, regardless of the lodgment method.
By phone (for 'nil' business activity statements only)
Phone 13 72 26 to lodge your monthly or quarterly business activity statements (BASs) with nothing to report at any label. You can call this automated service 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Post your original, completed business activity statement with your cheque using the pre-addressed envelope provided in your BAS package.
If you misplace the envelope, you can send your BAS to:
Australian Taxation Office
Locked Bag 1936
ALBURY NSW 1936

You can lodge electronically, by mail or over the phone (for nil lodgments), but you must lodge on time to avoid penalties. Even if you have no amounts to report for the period, or are having difficulty paying, it's still important to make sure we receive your business activity statement by the due date.
