"BAS excuded" refers to any goods or services that fall outside of Australia's Goods and Services Tax (GST) legislation. This means you don't have to pay the 10% GST on these items or include them in the GST section of your BAS. The ATO has a full list of BAS Excluded items on their website but some examples include:

  • Wages
  • Superannuation 
  • Loan repayments 
  • Donations to charity 
  • Dividends 
  • Prinvate transactions/drawings from the business 
  • Stamp duty
