If your GST turnover is $20 million or more, you must report and pay GST monthly and lodge your activity statements online. It’s not common practice, however some businesses will elect to pay their activity statements monthly despite an annual turnover of less than $20 million.

The due date to lodge and pay your monthly BAS is the 21st day of the month following the end of the taxable period. For example, a July monthly BAS is due on 21 August. Monthly reporting do not generally attract an extension, even if lodging through a registered BAS agent.
