08 Nov 10 Lodgment of business activity statements
The ATO advises that it will soon be contacting a number of registered agents about clients that may have outstanding business activity statement/s (BAS). The ATO plans to contact both tax agents and BAS agents where its records indicate their clients have at least one BAS outstanding and request lodgment.
When the ATO makes contact, there may be a need to discuss multiple clients listed against the registered agent number. To avoid unnecessary contact, the ATO recommends that agents ensure that their client lists are updated.
