BAS Agent Services
Why do I need a bas agent?
Businesses are required to lodge a business activity statement (BAS) to report and pay a number of tax obligations, including GST, pay as you go (PAYG) instalments, PAYG withholding and fringe benefits tax.
- Symmetrii's ATO compliance services include:
Electronic lodgement and payment of BAS and IAS up to 2 weeks later than paper lodgment saves you the hassle of posting paper BAS forms and mailing cheques. Would it be of benefit for your business to have an additional two weeks each quarter to submit your BAS? Knowing what your business can legitimately claim means you will avoid paying too much GST.

Recent changes to government legislation state that anyone providing BAS services for a fee needs to be registered as a BAS Agent with the Tax Practitioners Board.
To comply with the new legislation changes, a bookkeeper is required to have a minimum of 1400 hours experience and a minimum qualification of a certificate IV Financial Services (Accounting) or a certificate IV Financial Services (Bookkeeping) to qualify to become a registered BAS Agent.
