Submitting Your BAS on Paper
- Most businesses will receive a paper BAS form each quarter
- The BAS form may include your PAYG Income Tax Instalment amount
- The QuickBAS BAS sheet will not look exactly like the paper form
- However, each field is labeled and corresponds to a field on your paper form
- For example,
G1 is Total Sales on both QuickBAS and the paper BAS form
- You must transfer the values from QuickBAS to the same fields on the paper form
- Ensure you have the correct Quarter showing on your BAS Sheet
- Then post your form to the ATO
