    another hit to uber bringing it more in line with taxi's, all uber drivers must register for gst and
    lodge bas statements and pay the ATO the gst they collect.So Not only now will they
    need to comply with the gst rules it will also mean that all they earn is know by the ato
    and wont be able to not declare the earnings and as such pay income tax as well and if
    they are doing it whilst getting the dole well that's a gonner for sure.

    Common sense prevailed.

    They want to offer a service for monetary reward, earn money, pay your share of tax.

    A no brainer.

    Ill bet Uber itself wont be paying any tax as it would have based itself off shore.........another thing our laws need to address, ebay Aus, apple, microsoft etc all earn money from Australia yet pay little to no tax here.

    Edit; of course they chase the little guys first, start chasing the big guys too......

    I agree but looking from the outside in you can see the window the ATO is looking through

    1: lets have it law that GST must be paid

    2: now GST is involved no more monies being hidden from income tax

    3: UBER WE KNOW HOW MUCH YOU EARNED PAY THE PIPER

    unlike google ebay etc where working out the income to try and tax now with gst
    collection bought into law the ato will now be able to work out exactly what
    uber has made and be able to chase those tax's from them.

    And ill bet Uber itself wont pay a penny as its offshore, its the people working here that pay.

    I pay ebay and paypal fees, yet i cannot claim any GST Credits on their services, yet im taxed, collect and pay GST on what i earn through them......and they provide a service here in Aus.

    Exactly.

    It's a business, you charge GST, you pay GST, you claim GST.

    No different to any other business.
