     Can someone please confirm the following , I use the BAS prep on my software . I have closed my 2016 Payroll year but cannot do the the prep for the 2017 /18 year ? is this because my Accountant has not yet closed my Financial Year . If not is there a way around this .

      Also will be doing Online direct ATO Portal lodgement shortly , do I still need to clear the payments manually under my Liabillities or will these be aoutomatically cleared when submitted via the Portal through MYOB    Thanks   Gary

Re: BAS and EOFY



Gary once you have closed your 2016 Payroll year you will be able process payrolls in the 2017 year.

In MYOB you can have two finacial years open at the one time but only one Payroll year.

It will depend on which Financial year was last rolled over, as to what you can currently work on.

If you have rolled over the 2016 year then you will have the 2017 and 2018 years open and should be able to produce BAS / IAS for both years.

Going online and doing the BAS / IAS lodgement online at present does not automatically clear your accounts. You still need to do a entry to do this. Either a Journal entry as I describe in my answer here, or a Spend / Receive Money.
