  • Simpler BAS reporting

    From 1 July 2017 Simpler BAS became the default GST reporting method for all not-for-profit organisations with a GST turnover of less than $10 million. You only need to report:

    • Total sales (G1)
    • GST on sales (1A)
    • GST on purchases (1B).

    Simpler BAS reduces GST reporting requirements, making it quicker and easier for you to prepare and lodge your BAS.

    If you use accounting software, you can continue your original detailed GST classifications, or choose the Simpler BAS bookkeeping settings with reduced codes.

    You don’t need to do anything to access Simpler BAS reporting. If you lodge online you will automatically receive your BAS with less GST information requested.

    The paper BAS forms have not changed. You only need to complete total sales (G1), GST on sales (1A) and GST on purchases (1B). Other GST information can be left blank.

    If your organisation reports and pays quarterly, the due date for this quarter is 28 February.
