  • Are your clients ride-sourcing ready?

    If your clients plan to provide ride-sourcing services for a fare, let them know they need to get an Australian business number (ABN) and register for GST from the day they start, regardless of how much they earn.

    If you apply for their ABN, be sure to:

    • type ‘taxi ride sourcing’ as their business description
    • select 'taxi driver (except owner/operator)' or 'taxi cab service'.

    Your clients will also need to:

    • pay GST on the full fare
    • lodge business activity statements
    • know how to issue a tax invoice
    • include what they earn in their tax return
    • keep accurate records to claim deductions for their business expenses.

    You can help your clients understand their tax obligations by using our Ride-sourcing fact sheetExternal Link. It is available in eight languages.
