The process of submitting your Business Activity Statement (BAS)

Ways to Submit Your Business Activity Statements (BAS) for Tax Reporting and Payment, Including GST and PAYG

On this Page

Understanding Your BAS

If you operate a business that is registered for GST, it is necessary to submit a Business Activity Statement (BAS).

Your BAS will assist you in reporting and paying:

  • goods and services tax (GST)
  • pay as you go (PAYG) installments
  • PAYG withholding tax
  • other taxes.

When you register for an Australian Business Number (ABN) and GST, we will automatically send you a BAS when it is time to submit.


Overview of Submission and Payment

You have various options for submitting your Business Activity Statements (BAS) and reporting your goods and services tax (GST), pay as you go (PAYG) installments, PAYG withholding tax, and other taxes to us.

Even if you are unable to make the payment by the due date, it is still essential to submit your BAS on time. This will provide you with certainty regarding your position with us and demonstrate your awareness of your obligations and efforts to meet them.
