The representer will talk with both sides, have a look at all the documents provided and help solve your dispute, based on the evidence presented. We recommend saving all evidences of the task completion in case of potential disputes in the future, including screenshots, photos, cheques and so on.

Do I need to worry about the ATO?
You shouldn’t worry about the ATO if you follow the advice when working through BorisDoes. However, if you don’t declare your earnings, you’ll get in trouble. Besides the tax money, you will also need to repay fines and interest charges. If you have any questions, you can always consult your tax agent. They will try to ensure that you’re ATO obedient and to minimize the tax you should pay.
Do I need to inform the ATO about the money I get every time I work through BorisDoes?
Yes, you need to declare the money you receive from BorisDoes every time, even if it’s only a couple of dollars. This money is considered your official income, and ATO can get the records about income from BorisDoes at any time.
How do I keep track of my BorisDoes taxes?
BorisDoes understands that when BorisDoes isn’t your only source of income, it may be hard to record everything you earn. Because of that, BorisDoes recommends that you use a spreadsheet or some form of accounting software where you can record when you completed a task, where you did it, and how much you were paid for it. Don’t forget to include all your receipts if you buy something for a task on BorisDoes. You can also create a separate bank account specifically for income from BorisDoes.
Do I need an Australian Business Number (ABN)?
If you want to work through BorisDoes, you should register for an ABN. This will prove that you’re a sole trader business, and it will help you at tax time. You should also remember that when you have no ABN, a customer can withhold the highest tax level (47%) from the money they are going to pay you and pay it to the ATO. However, if you have already registered ABN, a customer won’t be able to withhold any taxes from you, and you will pay them on your own when it’s tax time.
Do I need to register for GST?
You should register for GST only if you earn more than $75,000 per year from BorisDoes and/or any other freelance work. After registering for it, you need to include GST on your invoices and lodge Business Activity Statements (BAS) quarterly. If you’re not sure how to do it correctly or you have any questions, it’s best to consult your tax agent for further assistance.
How do I pay my BorisDoes taxes?
All your earnings on BorisDoes are considered to be your income by ATO. BorisDoes doesn’t withhold any taxes, but you should pay the tax owing when you do your tax return. Because of that, don’t forget to enter BorisDoes into your tax return. To make your taxable income as low as it can be, don’t forget to include BorisDoes related expenses. After receiving your tax return, the ATO will calculate all taxes and inform you how much you need to pay in the end.
I had to pay for some materials to complete a task. Can I write them down as a tax deduction?
It depends on how you use it: if you buy an item solely to complete a task, you can write it down as a tax deduction. However, if you purchase an item for personal use or partially for personal use, you shouldn’t either claim it as a tax deduction or apportion the work and personal use. It’s also important that an item you buy for your own money has a receipt for it to be claimed as a tax deduction. For example, buying a sledgehammer and using it for BorisDoes tasks only for 30% of the whole time, you can claim 30% of the total cost as your tax deduction.
