We are experiencing a glitch in QBO where we get an error when we try to mark a BAS as lodged. We have lodged the BAS through the ATO Portal so we are fine as far as that is concerned but we can't reconcile the payment or work on our next IAS because QBO thinks we still haven't lodged/paid the previous BAS. Is there away to trick QBO into knowing the previous BAS is done with? A journey entry or something to move the paid amounts to the correct accounts? Support is working on a fix for the error but we need to do something in the meantime to keep up with our tax responsibilities.
Our product engineers have been aware of the possibility of this issue. Although we're unable to provide you a workaround, rest assured they are taking this seriously and have been working on this to get this fixed as soon as possible.
Also, I suggest reaching out to your accountant for other ways and alternatives on how to do the recording.
In the meantime, I recommend contacting our support team to include you on the list of the affected users. Here's how to reach them:
Has a fix been implemented for this problem ye t? We have a pile of unlodged BAS statements in QBO because they have not been lodged through the GST tab but by generating a BAS report and manually lodging through the ATO portal. All attempts to trick QBO that past BAS statements have failed and some of the attempts have resulted in Journal entries that have screwed up the balance sheet by creating additional journal entries in the BAS Liabilities account which we will need to journal out. Very messy!
