Taxable Payments Annual Report for 2021

The taxable payments annual report (TPAR) provides information to the ATO information about payments made to contractors for certain services.

A TPAR is required to be lodged if you make payments to contractors and you are in the following industries; building and construction; cleaning; road freight; courier services; and security, investigation or surveillance services.

Essential Information Included in the TPAR

  • Contractor ABN
  • Contractor name
  • Contractor address
  • Total for invoices relating to services only or those with a combination of services and materials
  • Total GST included
  • Business to business transactions only
  • TPAR is based on contractor invoices you have paid from 1 July to 30 June (do not include unpaid invoices)
  • If the business provides mixed services, then if 10% or more of your income (GST turnover) comes from the reporting industries above, then your business is required to report

Contractors include subcontractors, consultants and any other independent contractor who is not an employee.

Unsure if You Should Complete a TPAR?

If your business offers services in any reporting industry, either as the primary type of income or part of your business mix, talk to us about the contractors you pay.

Check the ATO taxable payments annual report webpage for full details of all TPAR industries and all the services that must be included in the report.

Most accounting software programs include a means of preparing the TPAR from within the software once all the required details about contractors paid throughout the year have been entered.
