How to report Foreign currency in BAS?

Hi, my business dealings are with companies in UK. I purchase and sell goods in Pounds.

1. How to report foreign currency sales and purchase in BAS? Do I need to convert the dealings to AUD while reporting? 

2.Invoice date and the transaction date (money received) are different. Which date should I consider when reporting quarterly BAS? I assume it will be transaction date. 

 

Thanks for the help.

Hi @Zamvi,

  1. You will report it on your activity statement converted into Australian dollars.
  2. If your turnover is below $10 million, you can choose your accounting method for GST.

The links should explain it all in more detail. Hope this helps.
