What is BAS and how to lodge it?

If you (personal/sole trader ABN) or your business is registered for GST, you are required to lodge your BAS (business activity statement) as per your lodgement frequency.

What is a BAS agent and why you might need one?

As a registered BAS Agent, we are qualified, insured, and backed by our industry association, providing you with peace of mind and assurance with your lodgements. Here are some additional benefits of engaging with us:

Higher probability of protection: Lodging your own BAS can lead to trouble if mistakes are made or if it's overdue, potentially resulting in fines. However, when we lodge on your behalf as your BAS Agent, you are protected. 

Automatic extension on due date: As your BAS Agent, we can secure an automatic extension for you. 

Qualified and Experienced: To become registered, a BAS Agent must meet rigorous qualifications and experience criteria. This standard ensures your peace of mind.
