    Hi

    I recently just gained my registration as BAS Agent and was wondering if it’s best to charge for the time processing the BAS information into the portal or it’s a set rate.

    I want to be fair and charge an honest rate but don’t know what reasonable pricing I can charge. Any ideas anyone who is in the same business or gets charged for the BAS processing?

    Much appreciated!

    I’ve just gone through selecting a bookkeeper and BAS and tax return submissions were always a set rate EXCEPT for the one I ended up choosing. Bookkeeping was by the hour but obviously a bit lower.

    I’m paying:

    • $88/hour for bookkeeping
    • $95/hour for BAS checklist
    • $110/hour BAS agent review and lodgement

    Hi,

    I charge an hourly rate for bookkeeping work, but I charge a set rate for BAS lodgement. I charge $60 per hour for bookkeeping, and $150 per BAS. This seems to work well. From my research, most bookkeepers seem to charge thus way.
    Good luck with your business!

    Hi Hatching IT,

    I’m interested in your comment above, from the perspective of the service provider.

    Set rates – whether for bookkeeping, tax or other services – are gaining in popularity at present, we offer them extensively. But as a consumer of these services you are saying you opted for the hourly rate.

    Can you add some feedback please on why?

    Many thanks, Rhys
