Simplified BAS

Hoping someone can help. I use Simplified BAS to cross check all my BAS figures. For many years I have just been able to open the simplified BAS, check dates correct and config it. Today all the Tax items had disappeared that were previously highlighted. I started putting them back in however G2,G 3, G10 and G11 are all greyed out and I cant do anything with them. I thought maybe it was just the file however we have another company with totally different file/account and it is the same. Has something happened that would have caused this.

Hopefully someone can help me.

    Hi Leanne,

    It might be that on the Config screen, you haven't ticked Include GST on this BAS. Or, if Include GST is ticked, and Simpler BAS is also ticked, I believe they would be greyed out since with a Simplified BAS they are not reported. Try unticking Simpler BAS and run the report again to see if they change. HTH

    Hi Leanne

    @JudyA is correct - This will be due to having Simpler BAS ticked in the Config window:

    Pre-July 2017, asset purchases (G10) & operating/other expenses (G11) were also reported in the BAS but since then, the majority of businesses were transitioned to the Simplified BAS which only requires income (G1) + GST collected (1A) & GST paid (1B) as compulsory labels to be reported.

    You just need to untick this checkbox & that will enable prefill/editing of those additional labels again ☺️

    Thanks that worked. Weird how it all of a sudden changed.
