Australia GST on Uber drivers

Sun 26th Feb 2017

The Australian Federal Court has ruled that drivers providing paid-for car-sharing rides should charge Goods and Services Tax (GST) at 10% Uber BV v. Commissioner of Taxation [2017] FCA 110.

There will be no GST threshold for these services – all rides will attract GST.  Whilst there is a registration threshold of AUS$ 75,000 for the supply of most goods and services, taxi-related services do not benefit from this.

The ruling will require all Uber drivers to register immediately for GST, obtain a number, charge GST and remit it to the Australian authorities.
