  • What is a Business Activity Statement (BAS)?

  • A Business Activity Statement (BAS) is a form submitted to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) by businesses to report their tax obligations, including Goods and Services Tax (GST), Pay As You Go (PAYG) withholdings, PAYG instalments, and other taxes. BAS is typically lodged quarterly, though some businesses may qualify for monthly or annual lodgment.

  • Who needs to lodge a BAS and IAS?

  • Businesses registered for GST must lodge a BAS, while those who pay PAYG instalments or withhold tax must submit an IAS. The requirement to lodge either statement depends on your registration for these taxes and your business’s turnover.

  • What are the deadlines for lodging BAS and IAS?

  • Deadlines for lodging BAS vary depending on the reporting cycle—monthly, quarterly, or annually. Monthly lodgments are due on the 21st day of the following month, while quarterly lodgments have staggered deadlines. For IAS, the due date is typically the 21st day of the month following the reported month.

  • What is an Instalment Activity Statement (IAS)?

  • An Instalment Activity Statement (IAS) is used by businesses, including those not registered for GST, to report their PAYG instalments, PAYG withholding tax, and other taxes. It is usually submitted monthly and is essential for managing tax commitments on income earned during the period.


  • How can I determine if I need to lodge a BAS or an IAS?

  • Your requirement to lodge a BAS or an IAS depends on your business structure, registration for GST, and whether you employ staff and withhold taxes from their wages. The ATO typically informs businesses of their reporting requirements based on their tax registrations and business activity.

  • What can a Registered Tax Agent do for my business?
