Did you know that by using the services of a Registered Tax Agent, you can benefit with an extra 4 weeks extension for lodgement and payment of your Business Activity Statement? Below is a brief description of the different BAS options available and the benefit of utilising a professional tax agent.

Monthly reporting


The due date for your monthly BAS is usually on the 21st day of the following month. If the due date is on a weekend or public holiday, you can lodge your form and make any payment due on the next business day.


We always encourage our clients to keep up to date with their records so the BAS can be processed in a timely manner. However you do have the option to extend your lodgement by 4 weeks, utilising the services we offer.
