What a pathetic joke our government is!

Whip those underpaid workers to death!!

We all know Uber drivers pay their GST requirements. When it comes to income TAX Ubers %27.5 commission, fuel, maintenance & vehicle depreciation whipe out any tax to be paid.

If the ATO wants income tax off these rich Uber drivers (what a joke) then it needs to look at cutting Ubers commission then perhaps drivers might be required to pay a little....

In the mean time Uber pays its bare minimum and sends the rest off to that TAX haven, drug smoking, prostitution happening Mecca, Amsterdam! Like WTF! ATO, lol

Violins please, why must you always play the victim ??

We all know Uber drivers pay their GST requirements.
And you know this how ??

According to treasury document referred to in the article entitled, "Tackling the black economy - A sharing economy reporting regime, A consultation paper in response to the Black Economy Taskforce Final Report - January 2019" REF: https://static.treasury.gov.au/uplo...aper-A-sharing-economy-reporting-regime-1.pdf

Did you read it ? look at Page 8 of PDF

"Following ATO data matching, guidance on tax obligations and education campaigns, in ride-sourcing, GST registrations of active drivers has increased from 52 per cent in the first quarter of 2016 to 73 per cent in the first quarter of 2018, with ABN registration rates now at approximately 82 per cent."

A year ago 73 percent of active drivers were registered for GST, currently 82 percent of active drivers were registered for GST.

In your world...."We all know Uber drivers pay their GST requirements."

We have sliding income tax scales, for every driver earning a net annual amount above the minimum Tax Threshhold INCOME TAX WOULD BE LIABLE.. Just because you may not earn enough to pay income tax DOES NOT imply other drivers do not incur any tax liabilty

If the ATO wants income tax off these rich Uber drivers (what a joke) then it needs to look at cutting Ubers commission then perhaps drivers might be required to pay a little....
This is not some Socialist Heaven where the government can "cut Uber's commission", it's a free enterprise economy - have you thought of moving to Cuba, or Venezuela ? Your profound economic sense of government entitlement would fit right in.

when paying the 10% GST that we all must pay, are we able to deduct fuel costs etc out of this or is it a straight 10% of what we make from uber

I know to most of you this may be a silly question but I honestly don't know the answer..

Whatever the GST is on expenditure is deducted from the payable GST.

Thanks... how do you show fuel when the prices fluctuate so much?
Umm Rachoz1
You can spend some time going back through the forum , probably any post heading involving GST in the post heading .

Are you full time ?

Are you part time ?
This whole thing GST is a minefield .

Most accountants these days are on top of the "gig " economy,
Mine $ 99 every 3 months BAS quarterly .
Now to answer your enquiry more directly, the fluctuations in fuel prices make no difference ( except to your back pocket)

Set up a separate account for uber , where you can keep track of your fuel when you fill up your tank ( and so can your accountant.)
who will match expenses with your uber monthly statement .
I will leave it at that , for the moment , otherwise it may come under the banner "of to much information ":smiles:

My God Golfer you've been robbed and didn't even notice :eek: unless you have some other really complicated business stuff going on there is no reason you can't handle your BAS yourself

Best to work out what to do from internet etc. I learnt from a Tax app by doing it all to the point of paying then bailing out. Details pretty easy to enter into ATO website. Main thing is that your 4 BAS statements must match up to your yearly income. Yearly income is your total amount minus GST.

DONT get an accountant that $600 a year is better spent on vehicle maintenance!

You get something wrong the tax deductible 600 dollars a year spent on a decent accountant isn't a bad deal.

everythingsuber that's the way I see it
$99 per Quarter =$ 396
$127 end of year $ 127
=$ 523
CPA never hear from the ATO, all correspondence , through my accountant .

I have after the year , about when about 21 , worked for myself , now at 70 " tears" of age :smiles: the last thing I want to do is deal with the ATO.
A simple spread sheet , ( hand written) ubers monthly Tax Advice, my monthly log book page ( she can work out the 66cents a k )
I don't give a shite ,that's what I pay her for :smiles::rolleyes:
As Mr Galt says my priorities, are my hobbies :smiles:
In my avatar pic umm 8 _ 9 years ago , Is one of my other hobbies .
So my hobbies are golf, guitar and uber
Yes uber is a hobby to me :smiles:
I have friends my age that sit and watch " days of our lives " all bloody day :frown:
I adhere strongly to what the rules were back Nov. 2014 , I'm a "good ant"
" work when you want ,make as much money as you want"
That's what I signed up for , and that's the way I "play the game of rideshare":smiles:
Every quarter takes 20 _ 30 minutes of my " valuable " time , to do my spreadsheet , some say I am wasting money I see :eek:
My accountant (she) often days " why are you still doing this ,
My reply is simple ,
Because I'd miss you every 3 months if I didn't, she used to blush :smiles:
I should add I am extremely lazy these days :frown: it comes with age
Addition I do absolutely nothing for end of financial year , it is all in her system , because of quarterly BAS I have submitted :smiles:

Yes, that is so true. There is just no accounting for attraction to girls with figures. :smiles:

.
Umm well of course we could go off Rachoz1 question here ( with a little urging)
However for his benifit he's probably too young
To quote an Australian icon / legendary bussiness person, when it comes to dealing with the ATO
" pay em your fair share , but don't tip em "
