BAS Lodgement Override

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.

Thanks MariaSoledadG,


We are already on the support team's list.  Our accountant just refers us to QBO support so we will just wait for support to find a fix.

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!
