We Know the Rules

Small to medium-sized businesses face a lot of adversaries. From building the right micro team to facing an ever-changing tidal wave of policy adjustments. With running your business, and managing your clients – things might fall through the cracks. It’s bound to happen. A minor policy change comes knocking and there is no one ready to answer. Enter Level Up. Tax. Accounting. Business Advisory. We know every rule, and we’ll take care of your operations when policy changes come calling.

Our team of experienced accountants will have your back when the rules change. We’ll always provide the information you need to tackle any required adjustments. For example, if you’re an electrical contractor, then your business needs to submit a Taxable Payments Annual Report (TPAR).

What Exactly Is TPAR?

TPAR is an ATO report created to provide greater insight and clarity into the work of contractors and subcontractors. So, whether you’re an electrician contractor or own a cleaning service, we have the lowdown you need on TPAR changes.

How to Know TPAR Applies to You

Previously, this report was only required if you worked in the building and construction landscape. With the implementation of recent changes, the following industries make also submit the report if they have an ABN and make payments to contractors that assist with services on their behalf. The below industries are now required to submit a TPAR:

  • Building and construction services
  • Cleaning services
  • Courier services
  • Road freight services
  • IT services
  • Security, investigating and surveillance services

The TRAR does not require you to report payments made to employees.

What Information You Need to Keep

This part is pretty simple, as most information required to complete a TPAR is located on the contractor’s invoice. However, to avoid any back and forth with your contractor, make sure you have the following information after they complete their work:

  • ABN
  • Name
  • Address
  • The total amount for the financial year for the gross amount paid, and if, without an ABN, the total withheld

It’s important to note that you only need to keep this information for payments made on or before the 30th of June each year.

If you’re currently using accounting software, then there may be in-built tracking for your TPAR. With some products, you may need to switch on the option and of course, ensure you are entering the correct data.
