Extension Of Taxable Payments Reporting To Courier And Cleaning Industries

The Government will extend the Taxable Payments Reporting System (TPRS) regime to include contractors in both the courier and cleaning industries effective from July 1, 2018. The TPRS already applies to the building and construction industry where businesses are required to lodge an annual report with the ATO disclosing payments made to contractors in the preceding 12 months. The ATO uses this information to detect mismatches between payments made to contractors and the income declared by those contractors.

Entities in the cleaning and courier industries will need to collect the required information from July 1, 2018. These business owners will need to consider how the required information can be extracted from their record keeping systems well before the first annual report is due for lodgement in August 2019.
