The ATO has just announced that it will begin contacting businesses in the building and construction industry who have not lodged their
Taxable Payments Annual Report for the 2018 and prior financial years.
What is it? Do you need to report? What information should you report? What if you haven't lodged your report? We answer these questions and more.
TPAR, or the Taxable Payments Annual Report, is an industry specific report for businesses in the building and construction industry (and soon other industries) who are required to report the total payments made to contractors for providing services. Do you need to report? You may need to lodge a Taxable payment annual report (TPAR) by 28 August each year if you are a business providing:
security, investigation or surveillance services – for contractor payments from 1 July 2019 (first report due by 28 August 2020)
The details you need to report about each contractor are generally found on the invoice you should have received from them. This includes:
Contractors can include subcontractors, consultants and independent contractors. They can be operating as sole traders (individuals), companies, partnerships or trusts.
The ATO use this information to identify contractors who haven't met their tax obligations by declaring the income on their tax return.
The ATO can impose a penalty where you fail to lodge a report on time. The amount of the penalty is dependent on the size of the business and the period the report is overdue.

In the 2019–20 Budget, the government announced that Single Touch Payroll (STP) would be expanded to include additional information.
Throughout March, the ATO sent letters to directors who are potentially in breach of their obligations to ensure that the company they represent has met its PAYG withholding, superannuation guarantee charge, or GST obligations.
It’s a great headline isn’t it? Spend $100 and get a $120 tax deduction. Days after the Federal Budget announcement that businesses will be able to claim a 120% deduction for expenditure on training and technology costs, we started receiving marketing emails encouraging us to spend now to access the deduction.
