The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) expects all rideshare driver-partners to have an Australian Business Number (ABN) and register for GST. Please note: having an ABN doesn’t mean you’re automatically registered for GST. Additionally, we’re unable to issue GST compliant tax invoices on behalf of driver-partners who don’t upload an ABN.
To obtain an ABN and register for GST, you can complete the process online through the Australian Business Register (ABR). You can also register your ABN for GST through their website (please ensure you have your Tax File Number (TFN) handy). If you accidentally miss this step, you can always register your ABN for GST by following the online prompts or contacting the ABR directly.
When completing the ABN registration process, your tax agent may recommend using ‘ride-sourcing’ as your business description. You can also use the following categories:
– 46239 Road Passenger Transport
– 46231 Taxi Services
