From 1 July 2014, the ATO started to phase out paper BAS forms. From this date, once a BAS form is lodged electronically, you will no longer receive a paper BAS form in the mail for the following quarters. Instead you will receive an email to advise you that your BAS is ready to be reviewed, completed and lodged electronically.

If you normally lodge your BAS with the ATO in paper form, but then ask us to lodge a BAS for you, as we lodge it electronically, you will no longer receive paper BASs.

For those that have been affected by this from July last year we have been able to request that you start to get paper BAS forms again. The ATO is becoming more reluctant to do this and we are getting a lot of resistance from the ATO to making this change back to paper.

The ATO believes that the majority of taxpayers are now using their own AUSkey to lodge their BASs or are lodging them through their Tax Agent, so paper forms are not necessary and they will no longer send out paper forms. Eventually we believe that the paper forms will be totally eliminated and electronic lodgement being the only option for lodgement.

You will no longer have the paper form as a reminder to lodge your BAS, and, if you pay your BAS at the post office, it also means that you will no longer have a payment slip.

To deal with this change, we suggest that you register for an AUSkey to start to lodge your BASs electronically. Or, as an alternative we can lodge your BASs for you and we can provide a payment slip when we forward your completed BAS to you for signing.

If you require assistance in registering for an AUSkey, please contact our office.

On behalf of Aquatec I would like to say that getting Thornton’s to provide management reports and business consulting has been the best thing we ever did. Moving from a “standard” accounting practice that wasn’t really giving us any proper advice to Thornton’s helped us transform our business and gave us a crystal clear picture of our business health on a month to month basis. Overall a great company to work with, would highly recommend them.
