Look for this Symbol

When engaging someone for your bookkeeping, make sure you choose a Registered BAS Agent to ensure proper compliance with the ATO.

Why? Only registered BAS agents will be able to:
  • prepare and lodge your BAS documents accurately and on time
  • give you extra time to lodge your BAS and make payments through access to an extended BAS lodgement schedule
  • maximise your benefits within taxation law
  • handle all day-to-day bookkeeping tasks
  • correctly set up GST codes and tax invoices in accounting software
  • communicate with the ATO about the best BAS provisions for you
  • guarantee some financial protection through professional indemnity insurance
  • give the ATO certainty that you're serious about catching up on BAS reporting and payments if you're a little behind
