I have cancelled my abn without realising I wouldn't be able to lodge a final activity statement. I have got busy with moving interstate and now two years later it has come back to haunt me with a notice that I need to lodge but on calling they couldn't tell me how to do this and best to go to a tax agent! Any advice?

Hi @reefrunner1,

 

Thanks for your question!

 

@Li0 has provided some great information, but I'd just like to add that if you were in business as a sole trader, you should be able to lodge that last activity statement via ATO Online Services.

 

Something else to note is that if the outstanding BAS is to be lodged as nil, you can use the automated IVR service to do this once you have the Document ID.

 

Hope this helps,

 

Rachael B.

Call them and ask them to post you a paper based BAS, fillin the paper form(s) and post to the ATO. Otherwise, go to a tax agent.
