Okay, why am I being asked to register for GST when my income is low?

 

I have tried calling the ATO 6 x times now but cannot get through due to "Peak Demand".

 

I have been given a time frame to contact them but really? I have tried to no avail!

Hi @Librasmile1010,

 

Thanks for joining our Community!

 

We can't access your account to see why you've been asked to register for GST - however, there are certain circumstances when you must be registered for GST. If you provide taxi or limousine travel for passengers in exchange for a fee, for example driving for Uber, you must register for GST regardless of your GST turnover.

 

You'll need to phone us so we can look into your account to see why you've been asked to register for GST. Our operating hours are 8am - 6pm, Monday to Friday and the best times to call are early in the morning or later in the evening.

 

Thanks.
