You will receive written notice of your annual reporting deadline at least 40 business days before the due date. You can lodge your annual reporting online at any time if you wish to do so.

Adding a representative on myQBCC

Here is a quick overview of the online steps

Annual reporting submission process

Remember, these important rules still apply:

  • Don’t go over your maximum revenue amount by more than 10% without informing the QBCC
  • Keep your ratio of current assets to current liabilities to at least 1:1
  • Ensure you continue paying your subcontractors and suppliers.

What is my ‘most recent reporting year’?

You are required to provide financial information for your most recent reporting year. For most licensees, your most recent reporting year end would be 30 June, in line with the financial year.

Are you aware of the SC1 net tangible asset (NTA) requirements?

You will need at least $12,000 in NTA by 31 December 2020.

If you are not sure if you have the minimum NTA, you should still lodge your annual financial report.  If you do not have the minimum NTA, the QBCC will give you until 31 December 2020 to strengthen your business. 

Do you have both an individual and company contractor licence?

You need to submit annual financial information for both the individual contractor and the company contractor licence. 

This can be done online via the myQBCC portal. This is the case even if your individual turnover is $nil.
