Frequently Asked Questions about Business Activity Statements

Do I need to register for GST?

Under Australian taxation law, a business must register for GST when its turnover (gross income minus GST) reaches $75,000 and above. But don’t worry, we’re here to help you navigate these waters! 

What if my business is growing but is still below the $75K threshold?

Congratulations on your growing business! If you expect your turnover to exceed $75,000 in the coming 12 months, you should register for GST. However, if your sales are below $75,000 but you still want to register for GST, you can do so voluntarily. Just remember, it’s important to register for GST when your expected sales in the coming twelve months exceed the $75,000 threshold.

What if I fail to register for GST?

Uh-oh! If you’re required to register for GST but fail to do so, and you didn’t collect the GST for your customers, you may find yourself in hot water with the ATO. In this case, your business will be required to pay back the GST, along with a shortfall penalty and interest. But don’t worry, we’re here to help you avoid such situations. 

Can I register for GST if my turnover is below $75K?

Yes, you can. If you’re registered for GST and your turnover is below $75,000, you only need to lodge an Annual Business Activity Statement.

How often do I need to submit BAS statements? 

Here’s a quick rundown:

  • Annually when turnover is below $75,000
  • Quarterly when turnover exceeds $75,000
  • Monthly when turnover exceeds $20,000,000
