BAS Statement


All registered businesses must lodge Business Activity Statements (BAS) with the Australian Taxation Office either each month, quarter or yearly. Companies earning more than $70,000 must lodge their statement to report their activities either online or in paper form about the following:

  • Fringe Benefits Tax
  • Goods and Services
  • Luxury Car Tax
  • Pay as You Go Withholding
  • Pay as You Go Instalments
  • Wine Equalisation Tax


At BYO Group, you’ll have a dedicated account manager to oversee all of your business needs, whilst providing you with ongoing support and advice.

How to Complete a BAS Statement

BAS StatementsHere’s how to do a BAS statement online or through completing the form. Make sure your figures are accurate, so you report your BAS right the first time and on the due date.

  • Check twice to make sure you’ve included all transactions
  • Make sure the dates of your sales and expenses correlate with the BAS reporting period
  • When using accounting software, be sure to code items properly
  • Make sure all your expenses are for the business

Once you have your figures, you can complete your BAS either online or via hard copy but make sure it is lodged with the ATO by the date due.

If the date of your BAS statement lodgement is near, and you don’t know how you will be able to do your BAS by yourself, you might wonder, “Is there a BAS agent nearby or near me?” Just give BYO Group a call on 0402 100 421; alternatively, you can fill in the convenient online form, and we’ll get back to you. We’re here to help.


The ongoing support from BYO books has just been fantastic. Diane and her team is extremely responsive and reliably intuitive to my needs, demonstrating their commitment to great customer service and their superior knowledge base on bookkeeping issues and how to use Xero to full advantage.

I have no hesitation in recommending Diane and her team at BYO Books to any business needing a responsive and reliable bookkeeping service.

We were using a manual Excel system of record keeping prior to working with BYO Books. Diane made the transition to Xero as seamless as possible without too much stress or work from me.  We now use Receipt Bank and she manages everything remotely. Our records are always up to date and I can request any report I like and she usually sends it within a couple of hours. The service level is excellent and we are always compliant with all tax and employer  obligations. I only wish I had made the change to BYO Books years ago as I now have more time to run my business rather than being the bookkeeper for it.

After many years of unreliable reactive bookkeeping we were thrilled to find Diane McCaffrey and her team at BYO Bookkeeping Services. Diane assisted us in developing a systemised, time efficient and proactive bookkeeping system for our small business. I find Diane and her team to be highly professional and efficient and a true pleasure to work with. And she is a great bookkeeper: diligent and detail oriented, down to the last penny. Diane continues to be an integral part of our success and we truly value and are grateful for our association with her.
