The ATO is contacting businesses in the building and construction industry about information that businesses have provided on their Taxable Payments Annual Report. The ATO will be contacting businesses who have:
- Provided a report with missing or invalid ABNs;
- Included amounts paid for GST when the contractor isn’t registered for GST;
- Not lodged a report, when ATO records indicate they should;
- Advised the ATO they are not required to report, but the ATO’s records indicate the business should have reported.
The ATO will advise businesses that are reviewed what the review has found and will suggest ways to make it easier for the business to complete their reports more accurately in the future, such as using the ABN Lookup tool or ATO app to check a contractor’s ABN or if they are registered for GST.
