  • Employee or contractor myths – workers with ABNs

    26 April 2016

    When you hire a worker, forget the common myth that they’re a contractor simply because they have an ABN.

    Your worker could have an ABN for a number of legitimate reasons, but this makes no difference to whether you should treat them as an employee or contractor.

    When it comes to tax and super, working out if your worker is an employee or contractor is based on the terms and conditions of their working arrangement with you. It's important to get it right because your tax and super obligations can change based on those arrangements.
