    Things to know

    Some businesses need to report information to us about the payments they make to contractors (including subcontractors, consultants and independent contractors) for providing services. The businesses needing to report to us include those providing:

    • building and construction services
    • cleaning services
    • courier services
    • road freight services
    • information technology (IT) services
    • security, investigation or surveillance services.

    Federal, state, territory and local government entities need to report the total payments they make to an entity, wholly or partly, for providing services.

    Additionally, federal, state and territory government entities need to report the total grants paid to people or organisations that have an ABN. Local government entities don’t need to report grants.

    The information is reported to us on the Taxable payments annual report.

    You need to indicate the type of income for each pre-filled payment and grant. Your selections tailor myTax to show these payments and grants at the correct section.

    You then need to enter relevant information at that section to ensure your tax return is complete.

    Do not assume this information includes every:

    • payment you need to include as income for the financial year
    • grant paid to you during the financial year.

    The onus is on you to make sure you include all your income in your tax return.
