Your March quarter activity statement is due soon. If you are lodging your own quarterly activity statement you need to lodge and pay by the 28th of April. If you lodge using our registered agent electronic services you will have until the 26th of May to lodge and pay.

Make sure you have checked off the following:

  • Have you allocated all bank transactions to the correct accounts?
  • Have you verified that the bank balance listed in your accounting software matches the balance in your bank account?
  • Do you have tax invoices and receipts for all business-related transactions?
  • Have you checked the GST tax codes for all transactions?
  • Have you checked tricky transactions like agency arrangements, insurance, or overseas purchases for GST tax code accuracy?
  • Have you got the paperwork for asset purchases or new finance arrangements?
  • Do you need to include figures for PAYG installment, fringe benefits tax, or fuel tax credits?
  • If you have to report PAYG withholding for employees, you also need to check that your payroll categories and tax calculations are correct for the quarter, (or last month for employers who lodge a monthly IAS).

Checking the figures at each of the BAS reporting labels means your statements are more likely to be accurate and less likely to need GST or PAYGW adjustments at the end of the financial year. Plus, you’ll have a more accurate picture of your liabilities throughout the year and be able to plan accordingly.
