I spent an hour on the phone last week with MYOB Support trying to find out how to include a payment in the Taxable Payments Annual Report to a supplier that did not quote an ABN (to comply with 2016 ATO reporting requirements - see attachment). After being told for about 45 minutes that it could be done and I was either doing something wrong or using the wrong version of MYOB (I use MYOB AccountRight Plus V19), I was then informed I was right and that you can't include those payments in the TPAR because they have to be included in the "PAYG Withholding Report where No ABN quoted - Annual Report". I explained that the ATO website said otherwise and so was told to ring the ATO to solve my issue.
I have now rung the ATO and was asked to submit the TPAR manually so that this one payment could be included as it needs to be for the Building and Construction Industry - we have 100s of suppliers - not a great option. We came to a compromise and the business now has to submit 2 x TPARs for 2016 - one manual for the No ABN supplier and one electronic for the others.
My "idea" is that MYOB should make a change to the software so that we can comply with the ATO requirements - I thought that the annual update of the software was supposed to ensure we could comply with the changing needs of the ATO.
