Recent research indicates that over half of Australians do not understand that income earned through the so-called sharing (or “gig”) economy is taxable.
With tens of thousands of Australians now providing goods and services through platforms such as Uber, Airbnb and many others, it’s essential that advisers fully understand how existing tax law applies to these services.
In the second of four webinars based on his recent book “Life and Taxes: A Look at Life Through Tax”, Mark Chapman will discuss how the Australian tax system applies to those providing goods and services through the sharing economy.
With reference to legislation, ATO interpretation and practical examples, this webinar will consider such potentially crucial areas as:
• How income is taxed
• What deductions can be claimed
• The availability of small business concessions
• The impact of Capital Gains Tax
• GST for those in the sharing economy
• The ATO focus on non-compliance in the sharing economy and what it means for taxpayers
Webinar Learning Outcomes:
Attendees will obtain a detailed understanding of how tax law affects those providing goods and services through sharing economy platforms such as Uber and Airbnb, as well as a detailed practical understanding of how the law applies to many common client situations.
Attendees will clearly understand the tips and traps to be aware of, as well as planning opportunities so that current and future clients get the best possible tax outcome relevant to their situation.
Tax Agents, Accountants, Financial planners and other advisers who deal with clients who provide, or are thinking of providing, goods or services through sharing economy platforms.
