Due dates for lodging and paying your Business Activity Statements (BAS)
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.
Just a reminder that the ATO is becoming very strict with Acitivity Statements being lodged and paid by the due date, even a few days late and they have been handing out fines and forwarding outstanding amounts to debt collection. Make sure you are not one of these businesses!!
When to lodge your tax return
If you prepare your own return, you have until 31st October to lodge. If you use a registered tax agent, you can usually lodge later than this, but you need to register with them as a client before 31st October to qualify.
