Business Activity Statement » Lodgement Deadlines


Depending on the turnover of your business and wages paid to employees, activity statements may be lodged monthly, quarterly or annually. Generally for a small business with a number of employees, wages are reported and paid monthly, and GST is reported and paid quarterly.


The lodgement and payment deadlines for activity statements are 28 days following the end of the period, except for the December quarter where additional time is given for lodgement and payment.


There are late lodgement penalties of $210 each 28 days late up to a maximum of $1050 per form, and interest penalties for late payment.
