CHANGES TO ATO BUSINESS PORTAL FROM 1 JULY

Thursday, 29 June 2017

The Australian Tax Office (ATO) has announced changes affecting the lodgement of activity statements using its Business Portal from 1 July 2017.

The Business Portal changes will mean you will be able to:
• lodge a nil activity statement with just one click – no need to fill each label with zero
• click the checkbox to sign the declaration – no need to use your AUSkey or myGov credentials
• take advantage of the 'Simpler BAS' reporting changes
• save a partially prepared activity statement then resume it on any computer using the improved save function.

From 1 July 2017:
• you will no longer need to re-enter your AUSkey or myGov credentials to declare that the information provided in your activity statement is true and correct. You will just need to tick a declaration checkbox which will save time and effort.
• the Business Portal will also be tailored to reflect the Simpler BAS changes for small businesses. Only fields that you are required to complete will be visible.
• users will be able to save a partially prepared activity statement then resume it on any computer using the improved save function.

Activity statements that have not yet been lodged will be displayed as ‘Not lodged’. Once it's past the due date, activity statements will display as overdue. To complete your current activity statement, click on it under ‘Description’.

All activity statements which have been lodged, processed, cancelled or discontinued in the last two years will be are displayed under ‘History’. To see activity statements for a different period, filter the date period on the screen.

To view an activity statement, click on it under ‘Description’. To revise an activity statement, click the ‘Revise’ button. Only activity statements
