What Makes DriveTax Different?

At DriveTax, every single one of our Uber tax returns & BAS’s are prepared by CPA accountant Jess Murray, right here in Australia.  We do not use AI automation or offshore staff. This may mean we cost a little more than the other big players, but in exchange you’ll get an Uber tax expert personally preparing your BAS or tax return, and chatting to you further if necessary to make sure that every single claim is maximised and you get the best possible result.

Frequently Asked Questions

How it works, pricing, what documents you’ll need, due dates and more.

Here’s how Express BAS works:

  1. Gather your Monthly Tax Summaries from all the companies you drive for.
  2. Add up your expenses for the quarter into totals per category (click into the Express BAS form to see the categories to help you prepare).
  3. Head to the Express BAS form via the links above, upload your Monthly Tax Summaries and enter your expenses.
  4. At the end of the form you’ll make payment via credit card or PayPal
  5.  Your BAS will be personally processed by Jess Murray CPA within two business days. If Jess has any questions or suggested extra claims she will be in touch via email.
  6. Once complete, your BAS is lodged to the ATO and you’ll receive a copy via email. If you have to pay the ATO we’ll send you the payment details, or if you have a GST refund the ATO will deposit it directly in your bank account.

Our fee for BAS lodgment is $99.

Every BAS is personally prepared and lodged by CPA accountant and rideshare tax expert Jess Murray (no off-shore or AI-prepared BAS’s here!) so you can be confident every GST claim is maximised.

If you lodge all of your BAS’s for the financial year with DriveTax you’ll also get a 10% discount on your end of year tax return.

You will need your Monthly Tax Summaries for Uber and any other companies you drive for, and have them ready to upload. You will also need all of your expenses totals for the quarter, but you do not need to send us your receipts or records. Just file them safely at home in case the ATO requests to see them. If you bought a car during the financial year you will need to upload the tax invoice too.

Read more about the receipts and records you need to keep here.

Late Uber Summaries – Uber are sometimes very slow to issue their monthly summaries, but they have always come through in time every quarter. So if there’s still more than a week to go until the BAS deadline, please be patient and it will usually come through. If you’re lodging your own BAS and don’t have the monthly summaries by the due date you will need to contact the ATO for an extension. or if you plan to lodge through DriveTax and it’s one week out from the final lodgment due date, please email us for instructions.

If your BAS is past its due date that’s okay, you can still use the Express BAS form.  It’s always best to lodge your BAS’s as soon as possible even if you’re not in a position to pay right away. The ATO are usually happy to set up a payment arrangement, and in the meantime you’ll avoid a late lodgment history and potential late fines.

If you have four or more BAS’s to lodge, please contact us via email instead of using the Express BAS form. We offer a discount of 20% if you need to lodge four or more BAS’s, 30% if you need to lodge six or more, and so forth.

If you have GST to pay we will send your ATO payment details together with your completed BAS. You can pay the ATO via credit card or Bpay, and the payment due date is the same as your BAS lodgment due date.

If you’re not in a position to pay your tax bill by the due date it is very easy to set up a payment arrangement via your MyGov, or by calling the ATO. You will generally have to pay 10%-20% upfront and the rest can be spread over up to two years.  You can read more information on the ATO website here.

If you did not earn any income for a quarter, you MUST still lodge your BAS. This applies for any quarter where you were registered for GST, even if you were only registered for one day.

Lodging a Nil BAS is quick and easy. Just log into your MyGov ATO account, navigate to the Business Activity Statement for that quarter and click lodge, tick the box to lodge as a Nil BAS, and submit.

If you are registered for GST, you must include ALL of your ABN income in your BAS, including food delivery income and any other income you earn on your ABN. This is true even if you earn under $75,000.

If you ONLY do food delivery driving, you do not do rideshare driving, and your total ABN income is below $75,000 then you do not have to register for GST, which means you don’t have to lodge a BAS.

You must be registered for GST before you can lodge your BAS. If you need to lodge a BAS but you are not GST-registered yet, visit our free Uber GST Registration service.

You don’t need a formal 12-week logbook to claim rideshare car expenses on your BAS. Instead, for BAS purposes, the ATO only requires you to make a reasonable estimate of the percentage that you use your car for Uber and Rideshare vs private/other use. You can read more here.

A PAYG Instalment is a pre-payment towards your end of year tax bill. The ATO will begin placing PAYG Instalments on your BAS’s if your income exceeds certain thresholds. The PAYG Instalments are payable as part of your BAS, and then at the end of the financial year you will receive credits on your tax return for the PAYG Instalments you paid during the year.

Please visit our blog post PAYG Instalments for Uber Drivers for more information.

The spreadsheet is not compulsory, you do not need it in order to use the Express BAS service, it’s just a helpful extra tool.
