...plus a phone call with ATO works magic. And all advice they give you is the final. They are not in a hurry as I just had a 1hr20 with them Saturday and all my BAS is now done. No money spent.

FROM ATO website

Everyone just remember to declare your income. As H & R block says, you can easily offset all the earning with deductions. A couple of ATO web articles and a bit of accounting and references for why you have claimed a certain deduction will help. Then from this year, keep all your records and record your mileage for the next 12 weeks if you haven't done that already.

Hi Mightymong,

Completing your BAS and income tax return definitely doesn't need to be challenging!

Airtax has been created by PwC, one of the world’s largest accounting firms, to make tax compliance super simple. It’s great for people who want to save on accounting fees and who also need a bit of additional assistance and piece of mind. All users have access to live chat support and each BAS and income tax submission is reviewed by a PwC tax specialist.

Plus, there's integrations with Uber (pull in your income) and NAB (pull in your expenses), making submissions super simple,

If you're interested, you can sign up for free to see how it works - https://airtax.io/

Hi everyone,

I wanted to let you know that the deadline to submit your April-June 2016 BAS has recently passed. If you haven't gotten around to doing yours yet, you can use Airtax to submit your BAS up until Thursday 25 August to avoid late penalties.

Don't waste time and money seeing an accountant to do it for you. With Airtax, it will only take you a matter of minutes and costs $49.

You can get started here: https://airtax.io/

What is BAS?

What is BAS?
Drivers who have an ABN submit Business Activity Statements covering GST quarterly. As you have been a UP member for 3 months you have probably been driving that long and reporting your GST via BAS anyway.

Anyway.....
The following may be of assistance.
You will find plenty of information, views and answers to most questions both within this city forum or located in other forums.

Firstly you may benefit by reviewing the Perth Uber link below. It is the main resource for drivers and will answer many of your initial and operational questions.
Suggest saving this link as a favourite for ongoing reference purposes.

Things to consider from day one :
1. Registering an ABN and cover GST.
GST is payable on the first $ you earn and calculated on the total fare, not the amount paid to the driver. ATO can see your bank statements. See ATO and Uber links below.

2. Maintain a logbook - klms travelled.
https://www.ato.gov.au/Business/Inc...Calculating-your-deduction/Keeping-a-logbook/

3. Car insurance that specifically covers ride-sharing (ride-sourcing) in your State.

4. Maintain a record of all income and expenses including keeping receipts for petrol etc.

5. Consider getting tax accountant advice.

The above will help you determine your profitability.

The following information was sent out in an Uber email dated 11/7/16. It states (and supports) that you must register an ABN and pay GST (on the full fare) via BAS quarterly.
Contact a tax accountant if this is not clear.

'Do I need to pay income tax?
We expect all of our driver partners to meet their tax obligations like everyone else. This would include declaring your Uber income, plus any other income earned from other sources during the tax year. You may also be able to claim your Uber related expenses (as deductions) through your income tax return.

Do I need to register for GST?
The ATO’s current guidance is that ridesharing partners should be registered for GST. To be registered for GST, you must register for an ABN and file quarterly Business Activity Statements (BAS).
