The Gig Economy: Tax Consequences and Employment Rights
Lecture Theatre 3, Room 205, Level 2
Business and Economics
111 Barry Street, Carlton
T: 9035 1111
This free information session will cover your tax consequences and employment rights if you participate in the ‘gig economy’ (e.g. provide ride-sharing services with Uber, deliver food with Deliveroo or provide services through Airtasker). Learn about whether the amounts you receive are income (and subject to tax), what expenses can you claim as a deduction (and reduce your tax payable) and your rights under employment law.
The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session.
