    Cleaning and courier services – Taxable payments reporting system

    The taxable payments reporting system now includes cleaning and courier services.

    If your business clients provide cleaning and courier services, they need to lodge a Taxable payments annual report (TPAR) each year to tell us about to the payments they make to contractors. They need to do this even if cleaning or courier services are only part of their business activities.

    Your clients' first TPAR will be due by 28 August 2019 for payments made from 1 July 2018 to 30 June 2019. In future, they will need to lodge their TPAR annually by 28 August.

    We will contact your cleaning and courier industry clients to tell them about the new reporting requirements and help them to understand what they need to do. We will let them know where to find more information, including how to lodge their TPAR.

    You can help your clients prepare for their TPAR by making sure they keep records of the payments they make to contractors for cleaning or courier services. Your clients will generally find the information they need to report on the invoices they receive from their contractors, including the contractor's:

    • Australian business number if known
    • name
    • address
    • gross payment for the financial year (including GST).
