Q: Hello, I have just purchased your software to do my quarterly BAS. I have previously used a full accounting software package but when I purchased my new laptop I needed a new install and felt they charged too much. Your spreadsheet seems just what I need to calculate the GST however I really need to be able to do my bank reconciliations as well. Do you have a solution or add on to achieve this?
A: The BAS Business Accounts Software is designed to be fairly streamlined and provide a specific service as such there are no add on's for bank reconciliation. However the Income Received and Expense Paid totals are included for each month. So if you are using a single bank account and depending upon gst payments you can cross check your bank balance against the Received less the Paid amounts for the period.
