Hi @Elise11,

 

Thank you for reaching out to us. The website can provide you with information to work out if you are running a business or a hobby.

 

You would need to discuss with Centrelink (Services Australia) if the income you derive from it is reportable. 

 

Hope this helps.

 

Regards,

Jodie2.
