Using the RTP instructions

Follow the instructions to complete the RTP schedule 2024. The RTP schedule forms part of your entity's tax return.

These instructions aren't a guide to income tax law. If you feel these instructions don't fully cover your circumstances, contact us or a recognised tax adviser.

Who needs to complete the schedule?

You need to complete the schedule if your entity:

  • is lodging a company tax return for the entire year (12 months or more)
  • has total business income of either
    • $250 million or more in the current year
    • $25 million or more in the current year and is part of an economic group with total business income of $250 million or more in the current year.

If your entity meets the criteria, you need to lodge the RTP schedule 2024 even if it has no disclosures. You may still need to lodge the RTP schedule even if your entity doesn't meet the criteria. We will notify you directly if this is the case.

We have provided examples to help you:

Exceptions to lodgment requirement

You are not required to lodge the schedule if your entity:

  • is not required to lodge a company tax return for the income year (the RTP schedule is a schedule to the company tax return)
  • has an income tax annual compliance arrangement (ACA) with us for the relevant income year and has agreed to provide
    • full and true disclosure
    • ongoing dialogue of all material tax matters, including positions that fall within any RTP category.

If you are uncertain if your entity is required to lodge the RTP schedule you can email

Positions you need to disclose

You only need to disclose Category A positions that exceed your entity's materiality amount.

All Category C positions must be disclosed in the RTP schedule.

If your entity is the head of a tax consolidated group, you need to disclose positions that meet the requirements to be an RTP under categories A, B and C for the head entity or any of its subsidiary group members.

Completing the schedule allows you to make informed decisions about positions your entity has taken or is considering taking.

What you must report on your entity's tax return

If you are required to lodge an RTP schedule, you must answer Yes to item 25 of the Company tax return 2024.
