Business Tax Tips – GST Error Correction – How to put it right

The Australian Tax Office (ATO) site has information on what to do when you find you have a GST error correction to make – and how to put it right in a way that is easier than revising a prior statement, as well as you can save penalties (see how the ATO is really NOT your business enemy!) –

“If you made a GST error on an earlier activity statement, you can choose to correct that error on a later activity statement if you meet the conditions set out in this guide.

The benefits of correcting GST errors on a later activity statement are:

  • you are not liable to any penalties or general interest charge (GIC) for any GST error you correct on a later activity statement provided you meet the conditions to correct a GST error on a later activity statement
  • generally, it is easier to correct a GST error on a later activity statement rather than revising the earlier activity statement.

Alternatively, you can correct any GST error by revising the earlier activity statement that contains the error. You can revise an earlier activity statement online or obtain an activity statement revision form by phoning us on 13 28 66.”
