Questions & Answers
Q: Do the line items for each month have to be consistently in the same place for each month for the summary to calculate correctly
A: No, line item order does not matter but all Accounts used in the Income or Expense sheets must be exactly as set in the Accounts sheet this is best achieved by selecting the Accounts used in the Income / Expense sheet from the dropdown. If they do not match exactly they can not be paired with the correct Account and this will result in calculation errors.
Q: I'm trying to load previously saved data. When I open the link below all my entered data has gone but I have a couple saved html files on my computer, is there a way to extract that data from the html files or do I have to re-enter the whole of 2017's data again?
A: All data is saved locally via your browser on your computer. Automatically saved data can only accessed from the same computer and browser from which it was saved. This means to automatically use saved data you need to use the same computer and browser that it was saved from. If you computer/browser data storage is cleared the data will be cleared. Also keep in mind that only data for the selected period is displayed. To see all data click ALL, List View, Revenue/Expense. BAS-I.C also allows you to access and save data in other formats using Share, Backup, Archive and Export functions. If you have the data saved via one of these functions you can reinstate it using Restore or Import. If you are unable to access your old data send me the html files you have and I will have a look to see if anything can be done to assist further.. however I will not be able to get to this until late next week at the earliest.
Q: For some reason i can't change the financial year button from 2017 to 2016.
A: You should be able to change the date. At the top left where it says "Financial year from" click the Month button to select a month ie Jul and then click the Year button the change the year ie 2016. Q: I need to make entries for 3 different entities, can I just create 3 different books completely? A: Yes. You can run separate accounts easily using sub domains ie add a sub domain like mybiz. in front of your BAS-I.C Account Code url so it becomes something like http: //mybiz.bas-i.com.au?c=........ . See bas-i.com.au for full details.
Q: Is it possible to change a free account to a paid account and then back up info? I have signed up with a different email account by mistake.
A: Yes, if you use the same pc and browser your data should be automatically saved and will be available to your new account.
Q: Am I reading this correctly BAS is only completed quarterly? We currently do ours on a monthly basis.
A: For most small business < $20 million turnover yes...according to the ATO "If you have a GST turnover of $20 million or more, you must report and pay GST monthly .... Other businesses may choose to report GST monthly." See www.ato.gov.au or-annual-GST-return/Options-for-reporting-and-paying-GST/ Monthly-GST-reporting/
