Amending a Taxable payments annual report
You only need to complete an amended annual report where any of the amount fields (Total tax withheld where ABN was not quoted, Total GST or Gross amount paid), were reported incorrectly in a previously provided Taxable payments annual report. To correct the amount fields, complete a new Taxable payments annual report, marking the ‘amending an annual report‘ box with an ‘X’.
When preparing an amended annual report:
- only include payees where amount field needs to be corrected
- complete all fields and show the amounts as they should have been reported
- send the amended annual report to the address on the front of the form.
Do not complete any information for those payees that were reported correctly in the original report.
