NOTE: Reports submitted with the name ‘Demo Company AU’ will not be assessed.

** IAS this month: in the last month of each financial quarter, where the business is reporting GST quarterly and PAYG withholding monthly, the BAS generated will automatically combine & report both taxes into one activity statement. That is, separate activity statements are not produced.

For example, running an ‘IAS’ for the ‘current month’ in the December quarter (September to December) will result in the words ‘Business Activity Statement’ appearing on the report. This appearance is acceptable for assessment purposes.
