Uber sent the following important email to drivers on Wednesday 4 July 2018 at 10.01 am: Useful EOFY information and updates Tax season is upon us again. We’ve spent the last few months speaking with driver-partners across the country to find out what you need to know to help make things easier during tax time. As a result, we’re excited to launch a new tax page on uber.com, featuring useful information and FAQs on all things tax. Tap the icons below to learn more. You can also check your partner dashboard after July 7 to access a new ‘annual’ tax summary for the 2017-2018 Australian financial year. It’s important to note that Uber is unable to provide professional tax advice. For other tax questions, you can contact a Momentum Rewards provider or the ATO directly. Airtax has also put together some general information, linked below, which you may find useful.

No. As an Uber partner, you independently provide transportation services. You are not an employee of Uber nor a contractor of Uber. As such, you are responsible for reporting and paying all relevant taxes associated with your earnings producing activities. How do I calculate GST on my fare? Fares you charge riders are inclusive of GST. As such, GST is calculated as 1/11th of the fare. For example, if the fare charged on a trip is $11, GST is $1. Where can I find more information? You can visit help.uber.com for frequently asked partner questions Jack Malarkey comments: This is a pleasing development. It’s great to see that Uber is now basing its annual tax summaries on the Australian financial year of 1 July to 30 June rather than the calendar year.
