One of the many things that business owners need to stay on top of every year are the Business Activity Statements (BAS) lodging and paying dates. Make sure you take note of the following dates for lodging and paying of your BAS for year 2016/17:
|1 – July, August and September||28 October|
|2 – October, November and December||28 February|
|3 – January, February and March||28 April|
|4 – April, May and June||28 July|
If the due date is on a weekend or public holiday, you can lodge your form and pay on the next business day.
If you or your clients cannot lodge by the lodgement program dates because of exceptional or unforeseen circumstances beyond your or your clients’ control, you can request a deferral.
However, please note that if you do request a deferral, you will need to provide supporting reasons.
What is BAS?
A BAS are used to report on and pay different types of taxes, such as GST or PAYG installments. They are used to assess a business’ tax liability, together with other different variables, such as asset size of the taxpayer company.
The BAS must include, importantly, the Australian Business Number (ABN).
