BAS is due soon!
Quarterly statements are due on the 28th of April giving you just over a week to get your ducks in a row. Yes, I know, we all hate BAS but hopefully these duckies make it a little more bearable. Cute aren't they?
Here are some places to get support for your BAS:
There was a change to Fuel tax rates on the 30 March 2022, you can head to the ATO and use their calculator to get the most from your claim - https://www.ato.gov.au/Calculators-and-tools/Fuel-tax-credit-tools/
Did you know even when you have 0 to report, you still need to lodge BAS as 'nil'? If you have a 'nil' BAS you can report as normal or you can report over the phone by calling 13 72 26.
Is your business undergoing difficult times? There is support available to support you getting more time and with financial assistance - https://www.ato.gov.au/general/support-in-difficult-times/
You can lodge online, through a tax or BAS agent, or by mail.
If you lodge online, you can register to receive an extra 2 weeks time to lodge your BAS - https://www.ato.gov.au/General/Online-services/In-detail/Two-week-lodgment-concession---terms-and-conditions/
