In the process of completing my income tax return I can across the following issue

Under the 'Business/sole trader, partnership and trust income (including loss details)' section it asks for:

 

What should this be?

'Ride-sharing' doesn't appear to be a viable option, nor does 'uber driver'. The closest I've been able to find is "TAXI DRIVER (EXCEPT OWNER OPERATOR)" or "OTHER ROAD TRANSPORT (EXCEPT TAXI)".

It should gounder either:

 

 'Ride Sourcing' - 15 Business own the car '46231'  or 14 PSI don't own the car '52991'

Hi @ishtiaqriaz

 

Welcome to our community.

 

I notice you have not said what your Main business or professional activity actually is. So if you are Ride Sourcing as a taxi @macfanboy has offered you two choices that may be applicable.

 

You should be able to see it in the (ABR) Australian Business Register where you can update your ANZSIC code.  Your choices should be reflected in the drop down for this label. It should reflect the main use of the ABN. See Updated your ABN details.

 

Thanks again for your first post.

Kind regards

MarkA

After some hunting around, I used the last piece of advice from MarkATO, which was to look at the notice of registration details of my ABN. I had previously registered as a sole-trader - for the single purpose of conducting Ride Sourcing activities (primarily with Uber) - so the "Main business or professional activity" of my ABN has not been polluted/confused with any other possible business categories I might have undertaken. On the registration slip I received from the ATO it clearly states:

ANZSIC code                    9131 - Amusement Parks and Centres Operation

So when submitting my Tax Return via myGov/myATO, the "Main business or professional activity" for my ABN is:

"Amusement Parks and Centres Operation"

You can also find this information from the ATO's Business industry code search tool at:
