  • Tips to help get your BAS right

    20 April 2021

    When completing your next business activity statement (BAS), remember:

    • Keep accurate and complete records of all sales, fees, expenses, wages and other business costs.
    • Use our Record keeping evaluation tool to help you assess how well you're keeping your business records.
    • Only lodge one BAS for each period. If your form has been replaced, you should use the replacement form and not the original.
    • If you lodge electronically, there's no need to send us the paper form.
    • Only complete fields that apply to you. If you have nothing to report, enter zero.
    • Make sure that you have entered the figures for your obligations at the correct label.
    • Enter whole dollar amounts - leave cents out and don't round up to the next dollar.
    • Lodge online and you may get an extra two weeks to to lodge and pay your BAS.
    • Registered tax agents and BAS agents can help you.

    Remember, if you've made a mistake you can revise or fix the mistake on your next BAS.
