BAS/IAS (Business Activity Statements)

Ask Pine Tax how we can make your GST reporting pain free.
If your business is registered for Goods and Services Tax (GST), then it must lodge Business Activity Statements (BAS) with to the ATO, generally monthly or quarterly. It’s important to lodge and pay your GST obligations on time.
Even if your business is not registered for GST it still may need to report PAYG, PAYGW, FBT and so forth. If so, then you are required to submit an Instalment Activity Statement (IAS) to the Tax Office.
If your businesses BAS/IAS statement is not submitted on time, then penalties may apply.
