I can see why your Accountant would want the TPAR report in excel format as quite often the total of the subcontractors on the TPAR report ( which we have to add up manually) do not agree with the total of subcontractors shown in Reckon. The reasons for such could be that the subcontractor has not been selected to be included in the TPAR or payments are made to subcontractors for materials are incorrectly included in the TPAR.
I would use excel to obtain the total on the TPAR which often contain in excess of 100 subcontractors. Without knowing the TPAR total I would not be able to reconcile the TPAR with the total of subcontractors showing in Reckon. Are you able to get the TPAR total without manually adding up the subcontractors?
