Taxable Payment Annual Report (TPARs) - 28 August 2018

Who needs to lodge: Businesses in the building and construction industry are required to report to the ATO total payments made to each contractor, for building and construction services each year.

The ATO requires this information for:

  • Data-matching purposes to ensure contractors comply with their obligations

  • To make it easier for individual contractors to lodge their income tax returns with pre-filled information

The TPARs for the 2018 financial year must be lodged by 28 August 2018. Penalties of up to $1,050 for each overdue report and accrued interest may apply for late lodgement.

How to lodge You can lodge your TPAR by one of the following methods:

  • Online using the Business Portal or through a registered BAS or Tax Agent, or

  • By completing the paper form Taxable payment annual report (NAT 74109) and mailing to the ATO.

If you use Xero or MYOB, you should be able to streamline the process of preparing your TPAR by utilising your accounting software to export the data.

Non lodgement If you believe you are not required to lodge a TPAR please contact our office before the due date so we can notify the ATO accordingly.
