When we built LodgeiT we wanted to build a cloud-based BAS agent platform with significant in-built intelligence & automation capabilities. We also wanted to build a system that caters for the import of data from the diverse range of BAS-reporting systems used by your clients.

To get started with LodgeiT, we suggest the following approach:




Sign-up to LodgeiT through this link and save the URL for easy access.

You’ll need a mobile phone for the next Step, code verification will be sent to proceed and authenticate


Be sure to switch from text reminders to Google 2FA for a superior user experience.


Set-up your organisation

Select PRACTICE TYPE as “BAS Agent”.

Make sure to select the correct ENTITY TYPE, which entity are you signing up that has an ABN and and MygovID


In this example, we will sign-up using “Individual” as the “Entity Type”.
Then proceed filling other details.
