TPAR – Accountants Nunawading

Taxable Payments Annual Report (TPAR) system has been introduced by Australian Taxation Office (ATO) in the last few years to access more tax related information. Certain businesses that make payments to contractors or subcontractors need to lodge a TPAR by 28 August each year.  Our local CLY Tax Accountants and Bookkeepers Nunawading can help you with Taxable Payments Annual Reports as well as regular bookkeeping Nunawading.

If your business provides a relevant service as below and pay contractors to provide the relevant service on your behalf, you must report the payments you pay to contractors for their services. Contractors can include subcontractors, consultants and independent contractors, and their structure can be sole traders (individuals), companies, partnerships or trusts.
