Tax Summary in Dashboard empty

When the tax summary was added to the driver dashboard I could see monthly tax statements but I logged in recently and it is empty. Is this happening to anyone else?

Uber support gave me a non related canned response.

Did anyone else get a quarterly summary?

Same here. Says no documents available.

Uber have not sent me a quarterly summary for months. I do my own calculations.

They dont do quaterly from i got response from uber. They do it monthly and you have to sort out the quater in your own calculation. By means generate a logbook sheet and add expenses you need to input. So each sheet titled with the name of month.

I'm happy using monthly but the summaries have disappeared.

It's probably because they weren't accurate. The new monthlies were closer than the old quarterly summaries, which were just garbage, but I still wouldn't rely on them for taxation inputs.

Damn, that is what I have been using so far to do the BAS

What was supplied in quarterly statements doesnt tally with the sum of the three monthly statements.
Uber gives you the gobbledegook response when you try to get to the bottom of this.
I dont sweat the issue, and just adopt best endeavours approach that I can only work with info I have to submit BAS to ATO. The ATO can take it up with Uber if they have an issue.

The monthly statements appear to use the month listed in the partner dashboard as the criteria for deciding which monthly statement a particular trip will be grouped into. Any trip that says July 2016 will go onto the July 2016 statement, etc. This is different to the weekly statements which use 4 am on Monday as the cutoff time. When you actually received the payments may well be in a different tax quarter or financial year to when the trips took place.

Except that for tax purposes, that will depend on whether you are on a cash basis or accruals.....
I think either way, it will average out, as long as you are consistent, and methodical, it won't matter. In the long term, you will pay everything correctly, and I doubt the ATO will have a problem with that. If you are purposefully inconsistent, then you will have problems.

PS, none of what I say is actual advice, and you should pay for your own advice (or just ring the ATO and ask them)

I doubt many (if any) drivers would choose to account on an accruals basis. There shouldn't be a delay in remitting GST on some fares of more than three months. As you say, as long as you're consistent it'll work out eventually.
