The business activity statement (BAS) is a tax reporting requirement for businesses issued by us on either a monthly or quarterly basis. It's used for reporting and paying goods and services tax (GST), pay as you go (PAYG) instalments, PAYG withholding tax and other tax obligations.
When you register for an Australian business number (ABN) and GST, we will automatically send you a BAS when it is time to lodge.
