I have two companies - can I have two BAS?

Hi, team!

 

I've just registered a new company, but I don't want to get my two businesses confused. Can I have two GST registrations and lodge separate BAS for them, under the same company name?

Hi @Kat,

 

Thanks for your patience whilst we received specialist advice regarding your question!

 

A business entity (parent entity) with different activities or locations can choose to separately register one or more of these activities or locations as a GST branch.

 

A GST branch will account for GST separately from their parent entity. Further information about GST branches including the application form to register a GST branch is available on our website.

 

Hope this helps.
