A Supplier will only be included in a TPAR if they are enabled to do so on their user profile. There are also mandatory details that need to be entered at a Supplier and Entity level to ensure that the required data can be included in a TPAR export file.
Supplier Data required for TPAR reporting
The TPAR reporting feature will allow you to generate an ATO-formatted TPAR file, based on the Supplier Payroll data in Astute for the financial year.
The TPAR export file can then be uploaded to the ATO portal for lodgement.
To prepare for this upcoming feature, you will need to ensure that Supplier details in your portal have been set up correctly.
To do this, please follow the steps below:
Determine if your Suppliers need to be reported via the TPAR. You can run the Reports > Payroll > Supplier Pays Report to confirm which Suppliers have been paid in the financial year you're reporting on. Note: Not all Suppliers may need to be reported in the TPAR, however this list will assist you in working out which need to be identified as ‘TPAR Required’.
If a SupplIer needs to be reported under TPAR, go to Users > Suppliers > select supplier > Supplier Information and tick the TPAR Required checkbox in their supplier profile.
- Ensure that the following details are completed on the Supplier profile:
- Entity Name
- Valid ABN
- Region (Country, Region, Postcode)
You can export the Suppliers CSV Export to identify whether there is any mandatory TPAR reporting data that is missing or incomplete for your Suppliers. Go to Users > Suppliers > click the export icon > Export CSV and refer to the columns in the .csv to ensure that all required data is entered.
Entity Data required for TPAR reporting
TPAR Reporting also requires that you confirm the following entity data has been provided:
Go to Config > Company Management > select entity.
In the Entity Details tab, check that the ABN and Name have been entered.
In the Payroll tab:
- Under Contact Details for ATO Queries, ensure that the Contact Name and Contact Phone Number are entered
- Under Payroll Address, ensure that the Address, Town/Suburb, and Region (Country, Region and Postcode) are entered.
