BAS (Business Activity Statement) is a form submitted to the ATO by businesses to report and pay GST, PAYG withholding, and other tax obligations. IAS (Instalment Activity Statement) is used to report PAYG withholding instalments and is generally a monthly obligation.. in most cases!).

STP is a reporting requirement for employers, where payroll information is sent directly to the ATO each time employees are paid. It includes details of salaries, wages, PAYG withholding, and superannuation.

The frequency of lodgement depends on your business size and turnover. Typically, BAS is lodged quarterly, sometimes monthly, while IAS is generally lodged monthly and reports PAYG Withholdings.

Ensure your payroll software is STP-enabled, regularly update employee details, and accurately report each payroll cycle to the ATO. Staying informed about any changes in STP requirements is also essential.
