Apologies for this question but Im brand new to all this.
If I have registered for GST on october 1 do I need to pay for the first quarter now or do I just fix up all owing GST at the end of the next.
Also if Im submitting online and I need to pay now what is my deadline?

You will only collect GST from 1st October onwards, so your first BAS (assuming you will do it quarterly, not annually) will be for the Oct-Dec period.

I would recommend, at least for your first BAS return, getting an accountant to show you how to do it. Also if you use an accounting system such as Xero or MYOB then get them to check that you’ve got the correct GST codes setup on all your accounts.
