The taxable payments reporting system requires businesses in certain industries to report payments they
make to contractors (individual and total for the year) to the ATO. ‘Payment’ means any form of
consideration including non-cash benefits and constructive payments. Almost every year a new industry or sector is drawn into the taxable payments reporting net.
Taxable payments reporting is required for:
- Building and construction services
- Cleaning services
- Courier services
- Road freight services
- Information technology (IT) services
- Security, investigation or surveillance services
- Mixed services (providing one or more of the services listed above)
The annual report is due by 28 August 2020. This will be the first report for those businesses providing road freight, information technology, and security, investigation or surveillance services.
