What is Taxable Payments Annual Report (TPAR)?

As a business owner, it’s important to understand your obligations regarding compliance and third-party reporting. Keeping accurate records of taxable payments made to contractors engaged in service provision is a critical reporting requirement, addressed through the Taxable Payments Annual Report (TPAR).

The TPAR is an industry-specific annual report tailored for businesses mandated to disclose total payments made to contractors. This report, submitted annually to the Australian Tax Office (ATO), serves as a tool for cross-referencing contractor income declared in tax returns with payments made by businesses throughout the financial year, enhancing overall compliance efforts.

The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) uses the TPAR information to data match the contractor’s annual reported income with the payments you reported. The information gathered helps the ATO to ensure that the contractors have correctly reported their income on their tax returns. It also allows the tax office to identify which contractors are not reporting their income, not lodging their tax returns, or incorrectly quoting ABN on their invoices. The ATO can also assess whether contractors should register for Goods and Services Tax (GST).

When is the TPAR’s due date?

The due date for lodging the TPAR report is 28 August every year. It’s essential to lodge on time as the Australian Tax Office uses TPAR to pre-fill the income tax of sole traders, post information on ATO online platforms, and identify contractors who are not complying with their tax obligations. In addition, the ATO has increased its focus on the TPAR obligations of businesses that pay contractors and has announced that starting 23 March 2022, they will be imposing penalties on businesses that:
  • have overdue TPAR
  • were notified about their overdue TPAR through three non-lodgement letters
  • do not respond to ATO’s call about their overdue TPAR

Details needed for TPAR

When preparing your TPAR, it’s crucial to include all payments made to contractors during the financial year. Each payee’s information must encompass the following details:
  1. Australian Business Number (ABN)
  2. Address
  3. Name (either business or individual)
  4. Taxable payments, covering the gross amount paid, inclusive of total GST paid, and total tax withheld in cases where an ABN wasn’t quoted.
