BAS issues



I have come across a major problem with the BAS and would prefer some advice.


I had previously being carrying out my bookkeeping myself until the 2nd quarter BAS was due. After that I handed over my bookkeeping to a third party. And on lodging the 3rd quarter BAS and as the final year BAS reconciliation was done, certain issues were identified.


I had changed my BAS reporting method and accounting method from accruals to cash basis in the 2nd quarter. Will this be an issue.


Also as a third party was handling my accounts and as I had more time in my hands, I requested all my transactions for the previous quarters to be re-done and error free and wanted certain new transactions to be recorded such as a savings account I had been maintaining and other sales and purchases to another entity which were previously not recorded. Therefore my accounts after the change would reflect accurately my business situation unlike what I previously reported.


This has changed my BAS for the first two quarters considerably. Could I please get some advice on what should be done to rectify this?


Thank you.

Re: BAS issues

Hi Booso786


It is likely the changes as you have identified below would have impacted your GST  and will no longer balance to previous BAS returns.  


I am presuming the third party you had appointed is no longer doing your books, if they are still doing your books and they are a qualified BAS or TAX agent they should be able to answer your queries directly?


Otherwise I would suggest  you engage a MYOB Partner in your local area who is a qualified TAX or BAS agent to review your file and amend your BAS returns if required or alternatively contact your accountant.




If I am responding to your query and I have helped you please kindly mark my post as a solution to assist others in the future.
Warm Regards
