For the current fiscal year, the businesses required to submit their Taxable Payments Annual Report (TPAR) are those in the following industries:

- Construction and Building

- Cleaning

- Courier and delivery services

- Information Technology or IT

- Security, investigation, or surveillance

- Road freight transport

- Mixed services (involving 2 or more of the mentioned industries)


The contractors or subcontractors engaged by the company can be "sole traders" (individuals), companies, or trusts. The information you need to collect from the contractors you've paid during the year is typically found in the invoices they generated for the services provided. Ensure you have the following information from them:


- Name

- Address

- ABN (Australian Business Number)

- Total amount paid during the year


How to lodge the form with the ATO:


Depending on the type of business you have, there are different options to submit the TPAR form to the ATO. You can do it:


- Using your business software to create and submit the form

- Uploading the form through your MyGov account linked to the ATO if you are an individual or soletrader

- Through the "ATO's Business Portal"

- Through your registered tax agent


It's important to note that all businesses, contractors, or subcontractors in the mentioned industries must report the TPAR to the ATO, regardless of whether they made payments to other contractors or not. The deadline for generating the report is August 28, and failure to do so may result in penalties and fines from the ATO.
