I started paying some of our quarterlies due later in the month. The ATO site for payments by credit card has been changed but it worked ok and I showed our new accountant the process. This month is a big month as it is a big BAS as well as all the quarterlies so I usually feel impoverished when they are all done.

I have been foiled by the time delay between Westpac and Dragon so I am flying today without completing the last quarterly ATO payment. Funds should clear tonight.

Can these BPay services (payment logic, B2bpay) be used for a payment as an individual? I have an ATO payment to make after some capital gains and am applying for the Qantas ultimate amex card, I'd like to put this payment towards my min spend and collect the full 1.25ppd if possible. I've been reading through lots of posts but don't understand the best way to do this, or if it's even possible?

Yes, it is possible to use one of these services for Amex, but those that do accept AMEX will have a high % charge. One option that is a little cheaper is used by some here is available through @ferni. You can find out more by sending ferni a PM.

I now have family each with dragon CCs so I will load up several of theirs this month so that they get the points earn. This will take the redemption pressure off the two of us and they can do their own bookings using their own set of redemption nominees.
This month I am around so I can do this rather than in the hectic pre Christmas rush next month.
I have two December trips so it is always easier iwhen I am not travelling.

I handled the BAS a week early where I shared it around amongst 5 card holders in our family group. I am hoping they will be able to fly on their points.
