How Causbrooks can help you lodge your BAS

Navigating BAS lodgment for your business.

Understanding and managing Business Activity Statements (BAS) is crucial for maintaining compliance with the Australian Taxation Office's (ATO) regulations. Our team is here to guide you through the BAS lodgment process, ensuring you meet all the necessary requirements. From calculating GST to reporting your earnings and expenses, we'll make sure you understand your obligations, whether you're a small business owner or a sole trader in Australia.

Enhancing your business's financial management.

Effective financial management involves more than just meeting tax obligations; it's about maintaining the overall financial health of your business. We are dedicated to helping you understand how your business activities impact its financial position and tax responsibilities under Australian law. With clear guidance and practical advice, we aim to improve your business's financial performance, helping you make decisions that support your business goals while keeping in line with compliance requirements.

Lodging your Business Activity Statement (BAS)

Your Business Activity Statement (BAS) outlines crucial dates for lodging and paying. The frequency of your BAS submissions is determined by your GST turnover, which directly relates to your business's annual income.

Here’s a guide to understanding BAS lodgement timelines based on the size of your business:

Businesses with an annual turnover exceeding $20 million

Businesses above this threshold are required to lodge their BAS monthly, according to Australian Taxation Office (ATO) regulations. These must be submitted within 21 days at the end of each month.

Businesses with an annual turnover of less than $20 million

For smaller businesses or sole traders under this turnover threshold, quarterly lodgement is standard:

Quarterly lodgement deadlines

BAS should be submitted by the 28th day following the quarter’s end. For the 2024 financial year, key dates are 28th of July,  28th of October, 28th of January, and 28th of April. If these dates fall on a weekend or public holiday, you’re allowed to lodge and pay on the next business day.

Monthly lodgement deadlines

This requires submitting your BAS by the 21st day of the following month. For example, for 2024, deadlines would be 21st of February, 21st of March, 21st of April, and so on until the 21st of January, 2025. If the due date lands on a weekend or holiday, the next business day becomes the new deadline.

Annual lodgement deadlines

If you qualify for annual reporting, your full-year BAS is due by the 28th of February 2025. Using a registered tax or BAS agent may allow for different due dates, so consulting with your agent or checking with the ATO is advisable.

Even if you're a small business with a turnover under $10 million and eligible for annual BAS reporting, you must still pay quarterly instalments for Goods and Services Tax (GST), Pay As You Go (PAYG) withholding tax, fuel tax credits, and potentially wine equalisation tax.

You can manage your BAS online through the ATO’s online services. Make sure your Australian Business Number (ABN) is correct and up to date. To maintain compliance with the Tax Practitioners Board, it's important you use the correct accounting methods and ensure your BAS figures are accurate.

Remember, your BAS is more than just a form; it’s a compliance measure that reflects the financial activities of your business, helping manage various taxes such as income tax, services tax, and others directly related to your business size and type
