how do I enter the first qtr of 16/17 BAS statement as it does not appear on my records in GST


Hi Pcorner,

Thank you for your inquiry.

To set the starting date of your lodging period (i.e. July 2016), please use below steps:

  1. Go to GST tab from left navigation menu
  2. Click Edit GST from top right of page
  3. Select Edit settings from selection list
  4. Under Start of current GST period, select July 
  5. Click Save button 

Once you have changed the starting date of your lodging period, you will be returned to the GST screen and you should see next BAS to lodge being July to Sept 2016.

We also have an article below about preparing BAS in QuickBooks Online, hope it helps!

Thank you, hope you have a great day!

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
