Why post your GST settlement? 

When you post your GST settlement, you are recording the GST liabilities or GST credits of your business that you need to report to the tax authorities. This allows you to track and reconcile your GST transactions so you can report on your GST obligations and be compliant with the tax authorities.  

Note: You need to have completed the preparation of the BAS and GST statements before you can process and post your GST settlement.
