    How to complete your Taxable payments annual report

    Annual report for year ending 30 June

    The year must be shown as a four-digit figure. For example, the year ending 30 June 2015 must be shown as 2015 and not 15.

    Section A: Payer details

    If you need to complete more than one form, this section must be completed on each form.

    ABN and branch number

    This is your Australian business number (ABN). The ABN should be the same as it appears on your activity statements. If you have one ABN, but multiple branches, you should show the branch number. If you do not have a branch number, leave the branch number boxes blank.

    Name

    This is your registered business name.

    Address

    Your street or postal address – write each part of the address separately in the fields provided.

    Contact name and phone number

    Provide a daytime contact name and mobile phone number or other phone number so that we can contact you if any information needs to be checked.

    Contact email address

    Provide an email address where we can contact you about your annual report.

    Section B: Declaration

    Sign and date the form. The Taxable payments annual report is now a legal document and the law imposes penalties for giving false or misleading information.

    Section C: Payee details

    ABN

    This is the payee’s ABN. The ABN should be the same as it appears on the payee’s invoice. If no ABN is quoted, leave the boxes blank.

    Phone number

    The mobile phone number or other telephone number of the payee – if the phone number is not included on the payee’s invoice, or is not known to you, leave the boxes blank.

    Business name

    This is the payee’s registered business name. The registered business name should be the same as it appears on the payee’s invoice.

    OR

    Individual’s name

    If the payee is an individual, write the surname or family name and given names separately in the fields provided. These names should be the same as they appear on the payee’s invoice.

    Address

    The street or postal address of the payee – write each part of the address separately in the fields provided. If the address is not included on the payee’s invoice, or is not known to you, leave the boxes blank.

    Total tax withheld where ABN was not quoted

    This field only needs to be completed for amounts withheld from payments where a payee did not quote an ABN. Where this occurred, write the total tax withheld for each payee in whole dollars. Where you provide this information in this report, do not include it in a PAYG withholding where ABN not quoted – annual report.

    Total GST

    For each payee, provide the total of any GST included in the gross amount paid, in whole dollars.

    Gross amount paid

    For each payee, provide the gross amount paid in whole dollars.

    This is the total amount paid including any GST and tax withheld.

    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.
