Even if you can’t pay on time, you should make sure that you submit your Business Activity Statement (BAS) with Airtax so we can process it with the ATO by the due date.
If your BAS is not lodged with the ATO by the deadline, you may be charged late payment penalties by the ATO. Similarly, if you pay late, the ATO can impose interest penalties on any amounts owing after the due date.
From 1 July 2017, the failure to lodge penalty is $210.00. You could be charged this amount every 28 days, up to five 28 day periods. Learn more about the penalties here.
If you can't pay on time, you may be eligible to enter a payment plan. See the ATO website.
