Navigating Tax Obligations as an Independent Worker with mobility
As an independent worker with mobility, running your own business and managing your taxes is an important part of your work life. Here’s a straightforward guide to help you understand and manage your Tax obligations.
- Income Tax: Just like anyone else earning an income in Australia, you’re required to pay income tax. The amount depends on how much you earn annually.
- GST (Goods and Services Tax): If you’re registered for GST and have provided your GST details on your mobility profile, we automatically calculate and apply GST to your invoices if your services are subject to GST. This is crucial for keeping your financials in line with ATO requirements.
- Do You Need to Register? If your GST turnover is $75,000 or more annually, you’re required to register for GST. If it’s less, registration is optional.
- Benefits of Registration: Even if you earn less than $75,000, registering for GST can be beneficial, allowing you to claim credits for the GST included in the price of your business expenses.
- We automatically handle GST calculations for your invoicing if you’ve indicated you’re registered for GST in your profile, ensuring compliance.
