Paying a tradie, cleaner or courier contractor?

If you’ve paid a tradie, cleaner or courier contractor to help in the last year, you might need to lodge a Taxable Payments Annual Report (TPAR).

You may need to lodge a TPAR if your business:

  • is primarily in the building and construction industry and paid contractors to provide building and construction services – including carpentry, engineering, architects and consultants.
  • provides cleaning or courier services and paid contractors to provide these services on your behalf.

The 2019 TPAR was due 28 August 2019.

Haven’t lodged yet? You can lodge online – it:

  • is quick, easy and secure
  • ensures you complete the report correctly
  • gives you an online confirmation once your report is lodged.

You also have the option of lodging on paper.

Made a mistake?

If your report was lodged online using business software that offers TPAR, you can generate an amended report using your software.

If you lodged differently, you can amend the report through:

  • the TPAR online form available through ATO online services for individuals and sole traders or the ATO Business Portal
  • the paper form Taxable payments annual report.
