    What is the correct way of writing it ...

    Is it correct to say 'on a quarterly basis' or 'in a quarterly basis'?

    The sentence goes this way:

    One of Tomís duties as Tech Support Assistant is to submit the DS4230 form to the main office on a quarterly basis.

    Thanks.

    'On a quarterly basis' is correct.

    He could submit reports in a timely manner on a quarterly basis

    Welcome!
    "on a quarterly basis" is correct. But you can also just say '...to the main office quarterly.'
