In this first year if you lodge your business activity statement quarterly, you may lodge on 28th July, 2013. The following is more information regarding your obligations:

Payments you do not report

  • Payments for materials only

You are not required to report on payments if the invoices are for materials only, such as building supplies and materials.

  • Unpaid invoices as at 30 June each year

Do not report any unpaid invoices as at 30 June each year – for example, if you receive an invoice in June 2012, but you do not pay that invoice until some time in July 2012, you report that payment in the 2012–13 Taxable payments annual report.

  • Pay as you go withholding payments

You do not report payments that are required to be reported in a PAYG withholding annual report – for example, payments to:
employees

  • workers engaged under a voluntary agreement to withhold
