You should note that certain payments must be reported under the Building and Construction Industry regime. These payments involve:

–   A purchaser carrying on a business (or the activity is conducted in a commercial context) that is primarily in the BCI.

–   A purchaser having an ABN

–   A supplier (or the person who receives money) supplying to the purchaser building and construction services which include construction, design, installation, assembly or alteration of a building

A business is primarily in the BCI if:

–   At least 50% of the purchaser’s activity relates to providing building and construction services in the current financial year

–   At least 50% of the purchaser’s business income is derived from building and construction services in the current financial year or previous financial year.

Of course, determining whether the 50% requirement has been met could be difficult and must take into account many factors such as equipment used or the work employees have undertaken.
