If you activate the automated activity statement collection feature, then your activity statements should be collected and prefilled by the ATO in an automated fashion on each activity statement reporting cycle.

From Forms, select Add Form.

Pull the form - 

Tick the Radio Button & Create & Prefill.

"Entity Details" - for Activity Statements, LodgeiT fills details (ie email, phone, address), you may update via ATO portal only.

Fill the relevant details -

Validate the form to ensure no errors exist.

Choose to either send for e Signature or print if you are a tax or BAS Agent. For business owners, simply "Sign".

Adding e-signatory (person who receives the e-signature request), should be updated via the Primary Signatory's "Settings" > "Contact Details".

The "Primary Contact/Signatory" is the person who receives and signs the form. Learn more HERE

Once the form is signed you can lodge it.

Or alternatively, you can Batch Lodge via the Dashboard.


- ATO will initiate and publish the BAS If client is eligible.

- BAS Amendments should work IF the original BAS is in LodgeiT AND there are no values at PAYGI.

- To get a BAS into LodgeiT not originally prepared in LodgeiT use the GST Analyser to 'call' the missing BAS.

- If you are an intermediary (Tax or BAS Agent) you may want to turn off your responsibility for a form if your client is handling the  lodgement .

- Forms are automatically loaded as soon as they produced (pulling of  outstanding obligations ONCE in 5-7 days), However if you have a new client that has outstanding AS not showing in LodgeIT, just add a new AS form and the software will search for unlodged files. If there is none, it will synchronise the lodged files to the client in the background.
