澳洲Uber再次来信要求司机必须更新ABN和GST注册信息

不久之前,我发过一篇博文:ATO正在严查Uber司机的GST注册和收入

今天(6月1日),又收到Uber发给所有Uber司机的邮件了,如果你是Uber司机,应该也收到了。万一没收到的话,请看最下面的邮件原文和一些链接。

简单概括一下,就是如果你是澳洲司机,还想继续开Uber的话,就必须最晚在2017年8月1日之前,更新自己的ABN和GST注册信息。我收到邮件以后,第一时间,就立刻更新了自己的注册信息。

我个人认为,其实这个事情,有好也有不好。

先说不好的:有些兼职Uber司机,可能只是上下班带个人,每周可能做不到10单,挣个100-200刀的零花钱,补贴一下油费。本来挺好的。现在Uber和ATO非要所有人都注册ABN和GST。这些人为了挣个零花钱,还要每个季度申报BAS,既麻烦,又要花不少会计师费用。到财政年末还要申报收入,交税等等。Uber对这类人来说可能就变得有点像“鸡肋”了,食之无味,弃之可惜。

从另外一方面说,对全职的司机,或者开的比较多的司机来说,或许这是个好事。因为以上的原因,或许有些开得比较少的Uber司机就会悄然退出这个平台了。那么也就意味着司机数量变少了,整体竞争也少了,那或许以后生意会更好一些。

当然,这个趋势只不过是我个人的猜测。无论如何,Uber正在和ATO联手加强管理和审查的力度,所以一切都要正规化了,注册ABN,GST,每个季度申报BAS,到财政年底申报收入。这些事情都不能不做了。否则要小心ATO哪天来“请你喝茶”了。。。 🙂

标题:Important Information about uploading your ABN and GST registration details to your partner account

内容:Please Confirm Your ABN and GST registration Details

Hi [该处删去我的名字],

As you may be aware, the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) expects that ridesharing drivers carrying on an enterprise should have an Australian Business Number (ABN) and register for GST. As we approach the new financial year on 1 July, and to help you meet this expectation, we are implementing simple steps to help you register for an ABN and GST and then upload these details to your Uber partner account.

Have an ABN already? Great! Upload your details to yourUber account:

If you already have an ABN and are registered for GST, you can update your details here. Please note, even if you have previously uploaded your ABN, our new processes mean that you’ll need to re-upload so the Uber App can begin to generate invoices for your riders.

Don’t have an ABN? Apply for an ABN and register for GST, then upload your details to your Uber account:

If you don’t have an ABN, there are some simple ways to obtain one including through services like Nixer or AirTax. With these options obtaining an ABN is free and should take around 3 days.

Alternatively you can also apply directly via the ATO’s website here.

Please note that even if you already have an ABN, this doesn’t necessarily mean you are registered for GST. If you’re unsure, please check your records or the ABN Lookup tool to determine your GST registration status.

Once these details are uploaded to your partner account, the Uber App will be able to begin generating GST compliant tax invoices for your riders on your behalf. We can also help you by providing you with monthly tax summaries that will be available for you to download through the partner dashboard.

By registering for an ABN and for GST, you may be able to claim GST credits on petrol, car servicing and insurance. Here is more information on what credits or deductibles you could claim once registered for GST.

We encourage you to upload these details by 30 June 2017 in time for the new financial year, but please note that your ABN and GST registration details will need to be uploaded to your partner account by no later than 1 August 2017 to be able to continue accessing the partner app.

For a list of FAQs and other important information please see here.

Hopefully with these resources you can focus on what you do best – moving Sydney – but it’s important to remember we aren’t tax experts and can’t give any tax advice. If you have questions we recommend speaking to the ATO or a taxation professional – H&R Block provide discounted tax services and specialist tax advice for Uber partners.

For further information regarding the ATO’s view of tax obligations for providers of ridesharing services, please contact the ATO by phone on 13 72 26.

《澳洲Uber再次来信要求司机必须更新ABN和GST注册信息》有8个想法

  1. Andy 你好,我也是刚刚收到更新ABN和GST的邮件,请问这个税务方面会上很高的税吗?我的年薪在九万到十万左右,再兼职跑Uber的话会不会很不划算,都交税了呢?

    1. 你好,税的问题很难讲,跟每个人的税务情况有很大关系,建议咨询下你的会计师。
      不过你说的大体没错,你本来收入就很高的话,再增加的额外收入当然税率就更高了。

    1. 登陆进自己的司机帐号里,在Invoice Settings里面更新。Company name是你自己注册的公司名,或者Sole Trader名字。
