  • Pay contractors? TPAR reporting is due 28 August

    12 August 2020

    You may need to lodge a Taxable payments annual report (TPAR) by 28 August if your business provides any of the following services and you pay contractors or subcontractors for these services:

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

    For each contractor you pay you will need to include on your TPAR:

    • their name
    • their address
    • their Australian business number (ABN)
    • the total amount paid to them, including any GST.

    The contractor details you need to report are usually on the invoices used to claim GST credits on your BAS.

    Complete your TPAR at the same time as your BAS, it's easier as you're using the same records.

    Choose the lodgment option that works best for you:

    • your business accounting software
    • the ATO’s Business Portal
    • your myGov account (individuals and sole traders only)
    • your registered tax professional.
