2021 Taxable Payments Annual Reports (TPARs) are due to be lodged for businesses who have paid contractors to provide the following services:
- building and construction
- courier, delivery or road freight
- information technology (‘IT’)
- security, surveillance or investigation
With specific reference to the TPAR due on 28 August 2021, the ATO has reminded taxpayers they may need to report payments made to contractors during the 2021 income year for the first time.
This will particularly be the case where such payments were made for delivery services done on behalf of their business (i.e., perhaps as a result of a COVID-19 business ‘pivot’ during lock down periods).
Importantly, the ATO has reminded taxpayers that they already have the records needed to lodge a TPAR from preparing their relevant activity statements including the:
- contractor’s name, address and ABN (if known)
- total amounts for the income year of payments to each contractor (including GST) and tax withheld where the contractor did not quote their ABN
Please contact our team on 03 9708 8801 or email email@example.com if you have any queries in relation to TPAR obligations.
