Businesses in the building and construction, or cleaning, courier industries may be wondering how to generate in a Taxable Payments Annual Report (TPAR) – and when is the due date?
Here we look at what the 1 Australian Tax Office (ATO) requires and how to 2 Steps to set up and generate a Taxable Payments Annual Report from RECKON ONE software online.
1 ATO Requirements
The Taxable Payments Annual Report (TPAR) reports to the ATO about payments that are made to contractors for providing services. Some government entities also need to report the grants they have paid in a TPAR.
Contractors can include – subcontractors, consultants and independent contractors.
Contractors can be operating as sole traders (individuals), companies, partnerships or trusts.
The details you need to report about each contractor are generally found on the invoice you should have received from them. This includes:
- Their Australian business number (ABN), if known;
- Their name and address;
- Gross amount you paid to them for the financial year (including any GST).
The ATO uses this information to identify contractors who haven’t met their tax obligations.
When to lodge – due 28 August annually
There are different industries that need to report, and different start dates to begin reporting.
