ATO Payment Times Reporting Scheme

WayneWayne Member Posts: 3

Hi Reckon,

With the first round of the new ATO Payment Times Reporting to be lodged by the end of Sept, is there a report available that can be used to meet the reporting obligations.

Finding a detailed report that includes the payment date of the supplier invoice seems to be particularly challenging. The supplier remittance is not suitable for this exercise.

    Hi Wayne

    Are you referring to the TPAR (Taxable Payments Annual Report) ?

    There’s not a default report for this so I find it best to create (& Memorise!) my own. There are a number of ways to do this depending on your file setup eg whether you have a specific (expense or COGS) account set up that you post these transactions to. If so, you can do a Find for that particular account, set to Cash (or use the Open >No filter) with the last FY date range.

    You can also assign applicable Suppliers with a specific Supplier Type (eg “Contractors”) & filter for that.

    No Shaz this is something new, I just looked it up, never heard of it before, it’s for big companies and government businesses and payments to suppliers, I need to read some more

    Hi Shazza,

    No, not the TPAR report. This is provided for under: Supplier --> Tax Activities --> Process Taxable Payments.

    I am referring the the new reporting regime whereby you need to report (6mthly) how quickly (or not) you pay your creditors. The problem I'm having is finding a report that has the payment date of each invoice. The supplier detail transaction report only includes the total of each payment, rather than the payment date of each invoice.

    Hi Zappy,

    Yes correct, only "big business", to which I am being grouped into.

    I'm surprised from the collective there isn't a work around. I wonder if that is an indicator of impending high incidence of non compliance. It's certainly an indicator of ever increasing burden on business administration.

    I posted a link up above and just tested it, try that

    Wayne youre killing me. The "burden " is being caused by big business using their small suppliers as a free overdraft

    I've raised this conversation with our product management team for some insight. I'll let you know what I find out when I hear back.

    Good one Rav. It has been on the drawing board for ages.
