Prefill and import
Import data into Xero Tax from a client’s Xero file to save time and reduce manual errors. Xero Tax can also prefill BAS with data from the ATO.
Automatic activity statements
Never miss a lodgement. Enable automatic BAS creation to create a statement for clients with outstanding ATO obligations at the start of each month.
Pre-lodge is an optional check you can run on statements to check whether the return will pass lodgement with the ATO prior to the client signing it.
