    Are H & R Block suitable for Uber tax returns?

    I'm doing my tax and usually use H & R Block, I've never done a tax return since driving Uber and I've read about some drivers not getting proper returns because of bad accountants so thought it might be worth checking if H & R are okay for doing GST and Tax returns for taxi drivers.

    Missing five-cent payments can add up to big money: hunt 'em down

    If you provided your ABN to Uber, you remain eligible to receive a payment of five cents for each booking fee of 55 cents to compensate you for the GST payable on the booking fee. Uber completely recoups the booking fee from you so this compensation payment is important. You will find that...

    Are the ATO just being bullies?

    Are the ATO just bullying in requiring Uber drivers to pay GST? They the ATO continually state the driver charges the rider from point A to B. Which is completely untrue! Uber provide the service...set the price, charge the price, collect the price and pay the driver a weekly wage. As a former...

    GST passed on for drivers to absorb

    Just got told by Uber that they won't be charging GST for my riders and that I will have to pay GST from when I started. All of us could therefore possibly face a few $1000 GST bill very soon while effectively earning 10% less. Any opinions?

    GST Surprise

    Hi Uberall, Has anyone noticed that Uber is taking a portion of your GST. The GST is calculated on the fare that the rider pays. I had my GST done by H&R Block and they did not pick it up.

    New GST in India: cab aggregators need to register

    India will soon have a GST. I have checked to see how taxi travel including rideshare will be taxed. As in Australia, there is no threshold for taxi travel. Unlike in Australia, the tax is imposed not on drivers but on cab aggregators including Uber and the local competitor Ola. See...

    VAT or GST?

    You may have noticed that Uber yesterday stopped referring on our trip summaries to the five cents 'services tax' on the new 55-cent booking fee and has started referring to it as 'Vat'. I presume that some programmer in San Francisco doesn't realise that in Australia we refer to the relevant...
