Govreports Makes Bas Lodgement Easy With Intuit Quickbooks

Impact Management Group is announcing its latest GovReports integration with Intuit QuickBooks Online for Business Activity Statement (BAS) lodgements. The integration allows QuickBooks Online users to lodge their December 2013 BAS from GovReports.

GovReports cloud based lodgement portal allows AUSkey holders to easily submit BAS reports to the ATO from a wide variety of web-enabled devices. The new integration will allow GovReports users to sign into QuickBooks Online from their GovReports account. They will then export QuickBooks Online BAS output directly to the activity statement report for the ATO. This is available for GovReports users with QuickBooks Online records for the December 2013 BAS reports.

Impact Management Group Director, Tiana Tran is pleased with this latest development which provides further options to SME GovReport users. She mentions, "we now have successful integration with a number of popular accounting and financial reporting packages used by smaller businesses."

Tiana also noted there are benefits to BAS and Tax agents using GovReports.

"Increasing integration is great news for BAS and Tax Agents. Their clients tend to use a variety of financial reporting packages. Agents can log into GovReports once and load reports using their individual AUSKey for multiple clients even though the source records are from different accounting softwares."

Brad Paterson, VP & Managing Director for Intuit APAC said, "We welcome 3rd party developers to work with us and integrate with QuickBooks. This partnership between QuickBooks Online and GovReports will not only save time for small business owners by reducing the paperwork, but also improve efficiency through minimising errors that often occur during manual data entry."

Both GovReports and QuickBooks Online are offering integrated cloud applications to their customers. Increasingly, bookkeepers, accountants and agents are seeing the benefits of being able to access information anytime, anywhere on a wide variety of devices. According to a recent SME cloud survey of small businesses, 34% of small businesses are looking to adopt cloud services in the next 12 months (up 15% from last year) and 58% said the cloud has given them better control of their data.

GovReports will continue to expand its new offerings through 2014. Tiana mentions "Later this year GovReports aims to have other integrations in place; not only for packages popular with SME's but also with solutions for larger businesses"
