Prepare your activity statement manually

If you're not preparing your activity statements online, you can use the BASlink feature to prepare your Business Activity Statement (BAS) or Instalment Activity Statement (IAS).

Before you begin, you need to set up your activity statement information. If you've upgraded from AccountRight Classic (v19 or earlier), you can import your previous BASlink setup file.

If you'll lodge your activity statement using the ATO’s Business Portal website, you need to have a digital certificate from the ATO on your computer. For more information, contact the ATO.
