Is an ABN compulsory to be a Runner?
All our Runners are independent contractors. This is why we ask for your ABN information.
If you don’t already have an ABN, you may be able to apply for one. The ATO will determine the eligibility for your entitlement to an ABN and their guidelines must be strictly adhered to.
Before you start applying, please make sure you understand all your tax obligations and get advice from your accountant.
What you need to do is to go on the Australian Business Register website, click on the ‘Apply for an ABN’ button and then fill in the required information.
If anything is unclear, when you fill in the Application, make sure to click on the question mark on the right hand side.
For example, for the ‘What is the nature of your activity?’ question, if you click on the question mark it will explain what to do.
