If you're running an enterprise (business) of providing services through a digital platform you may need to register for an Australian business number (ABN) and goods and services tax (GST).

 

To check if you are required to be registered for an ABN you can use this tool https://www.abr.gov.au/business-super-funds-charities/applying-abn/abn-entitlement

 

Do you know if you are an Australian resident for tax purposes? You can use this tool on the ato website to help you work this out https://www.ato.gov.au/Calculators-and-tools/Host/?anchor=AreYouAResident&anchor=AreYouAResident&anc...
