I have recently gone thru a mid-life crisis and taken up acting- as a hobby. As a result I’ve received paid work for 1 short film $400. I’ve been refused an ABN but in order to be paid I’ve been asked to send an invoice... how do I go about getting paid/send invoice without an ABN?

Hi @Pjmol,

 

Thanks for your question!

 

If you were refused an ABN because you were not entitled, you may be eligible to use a Statement by supplier not quoting an ABN instead of a tax invoice.

 

You may also need to provide a written statement to the payer to show that the supply is made in the course or furtherance of an activity done as a private recreational pursuit or hobby.

 

Hope this helps,
