Adding or deleting an activity statement manually

You can prepare activity statements for your clients if you've set up your tax agent details, and your clients appear in MYOB Practice.

Activity statements can be added manually in MYOB Practice using the Add form button.

Adding an activity statement


When you add an activity statement, we'll check for any outstanding activity statement obligations that your client has with the ATO. We'll then create and pre-fill the form with the details of the outstanding obligation (where available), including:

  • form type

  • branch code

  • period

  • lodgment due date

  • any pre-determined ATO instalments.

The fields that appear in the form will depend on the type of BAS form the ATO has requested. For information about the fields, you'll find in each section, see Data in activity statements - AU.

  1. Click Compliance on the menu bar. The Compliance page appears.

  2. Click Add new on the top right of the page. The Add new window appears.

  3. Select a client from the drop-down.

    MYOB Practice checks against the ATO for outstanding activity statements and automatically pre-fills the details of the outstanding activity statement.

  4. If you have multiple activity statements outstanding, select the Branch code and/or Period for the activity statement you want to create.

  5. Click Create. The activity statement appears in the client's Compliance list. To open the activity statement, click it in the Compliance list.
