What is the role of a BAS tax agent?

We’re sure you’ve noticed, the world of accountancy is bursting with jargon. Balance sheet, bookkeeping, BAS – the list could go on. So, let’s bust some jargon and tackle what a BAS agent actually is here and now.

A BAS agent is simply an accountant that provides BAS services for a fee. So, any accountant that submits a BAS as a paid service must be a registered ATO BAS agent contact. A registered BAS agent is issued a licence that allows them to advise clients on tax management or may represent a client to the tax office if required.

Can a BAS agent provide payroll services?

Absolutely! As a payroll officer, there is no need for you to be registered as an ATO BAS agent if you’re not completing BAS services. You may have heard already, payroll is getting a mandated overhaul. So all businesses must comply with the new regulation by the 1st of July 2019 (if you have 19 employees or less). If you’re thinking, ‘what is single touch payroll’, then it’s time to call on the Level Up team.

What exactly is Single Touch Payroll?

Single Touch Payroll (STP) is a major shift in business compliance. Some say the biggest compliance regulation since GST. Single Touch Payroll is essentially a new way of reporting tax and super information to the ATO. Each time payroll is sent out, employees’ tax and super information must be sent directly to the ATO. Already have a headache? No worries. Good thing Level Up has your back.

The Benefits of Single Touch Payroll Reporting for your Business

With the implementation of Single Touch Payroll businesses, small and big, are able to implement streamlined systems to achieve next level reporting. Single Touch Payroll Reporting (STPR) gives businesses the capacity to report, pay employees, monitor superannuation and PAYG with a single click. Driving automation is a vital element in inspiring growth and innovation throughout the hierarchy of your business.

STP creates a strong foundation to begin implementing and utilising best-of-breed, forward-thinking smart reporting technology. For many, payroll is a balancing act of compliance and efficiency, so adopting an automated process may seem counter-productive. However, STPR and AIO regulation gives businesses the push they need to revamp legacy systems and implement a cloud-based payroll system. Utilising STPR efficiency can position your business for scalability and economic growth, reducing maintenance fees, and converting tedious manual labour to high-thinking work.

STPR also gives businesses the ability to streamline the staff on-boarding, particularly when it comes to superannuation setup and PAYG tax.

Want to see these benefits in your business today? Contact the Level Up team to discuss what STPR can do for your business. It’s time to work smarter, not harder.
