How SBR works?

Step 1

When you select the relevant report to be completed, SapphireOne’s SBR-enabled software knows what information is needed for that report, and automatically fills it in for you.

step 2

If you agree with the information presented in the report you can send it securely and directly to the relevant government agency. If you need to make changes, you can also do that in SapphireOne’s accounting software and submit an updated report.

step 3

You then receive immediate confirmation from the government agency saying the report was received.

How to access the SBR system using SapphireOne


You must have an AUSkey (you may use an existing AUSkey)

You must also ensure the AUSkey holder is authorised to the relevant registered agent number(s) in Access Manager (including setting the relevant ‘Client’ permissions).

To start the process first you click on the -New Bas Submission. If the credentials are correct the Retrieve BAS from SBR button will become active allowing the user to select it. The system will now use the credentials documented above to access the ATO SBR website.


This will commence the BAS reporting procedure as seen in the screen shots commencing below.

If the ATO website recognises that the company has the correct credentials it will respond with the pop-up message as seen below. Once the ATO site has accepted the connection the Create BAS button will become active so the user should select the Create BAS button now.

Step 2

The ATO and the SapphireOne systems will now proceed with what the ATO calls an Activity Statement interaction. (AS) for short as follows.

When this is selected the system will display the main page of your new BAS.

From here on very little has changed when a BAS submission is submitted as you will note that the BAS forms or screens are almost identical.


The screen shot below indicates that the BAS has a printed date, Lodged and locked!
