Lodging your next BAS?


If you lodge your business activity statement (BAS) quarterly, your next statement is due on 28 February.

Here are our latest tips to help you complete your BAS.

  • Lodge and pay online. It's quick, easy and secure, and you may receive an extra 2 weeks to lodge and pay.

  • You’ll receive notifications to help you get it right and avoid mistakes before you lodge.

  • Fuel tax credit rates changed from 1 February 2023. Use the fuel tax credit calculator to correctly calculate your claim.

  • Lodge online via Online services for individuals and sole traders (accessed through myGov], Online services for business or Standard Business Reporting-enabled software.

  • You can pay your BAS with BPAY or a credit/debit card. You can also pay securely online using our Online services.

  • Even if you have nothing to report, you still need to lodge your BAS as 'nil'.

  • If you lodge online, you don't need to send us the paper form.

  • If you're unable to lodge or pay on time, engage with us early to discuss your options.

Remember, you can lodge your BAS through a registered tax or BAS agent.
