When to report
Your first Taxable payments annual report will be for the year ending 30 June 2018 and is due by 28 August.
Correcting a lodged report
After lodging your annual report, you may find some information you've reported is incorrect.
Where any amount fields have been reported incorrectly, you'll need to provide an amended annual report. ABN, name and address details for the affected business need to be reported exactly the same as in the original report, with the correct amount fields.
You don't need to notify us of changes to information other than amount fields.
You can generate an amended report using your software. Contact your software developer for further advice on how to generate an amended report.
