The Payment Times Reporting Portal is now live

The Payment Times Reporting Portal is now live on the Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources (DISER) website. The portal’s main page outlines the steps required to access the portal, the option for small businesses to opt-in or out of being identified by the Small Business Identification (SBI) tool as well as the PTR templates for reporting entities.

Identified reporting entities have been directly emailed by DISER who have provided further information as well as the PTR templates.

Although volunteer reporting is not yet available, those entities that would like to volunteer can login to the PTR Portal to register relevant business details and will be updated once volunteer reporting is available.
