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.

Yes we can absolutely lodge your spouse’s tax return. Non-Uber drivers can use our Express Tax service too. You’ll find a question in the first section of the form asking what kind of driving you did. Just answer none, and then the form will automatically skip all the Uber questions. Our fee for a non-Uber/employee only tax return is $140.

Yes we can lodge non-Uber tax returns too. For example if you’re no longer driving for Uber but you’d like to keep lodging with DriveTax we’d love for you to stay! In the Express Tax form you’ll find a question in the first section of the form asking what kind of driving you did. Just answer none, and then the form will automatically skip all the Uber questions. Our fee for a non-Uber/employee only tax return is $140.

Our standard fees include simple dividends and managed fund income. Our fee for rental properties is $88 per property. Capital Gains or additional business income may incur additional fees. If this applies to you please contact us for a quote.

We will send your tax invoice together with your completed tax return, and our terms are 14 days. We can lodge your return to the ATO once we’ve received your payment.   Payment options include credit card, bank transfer and PayPal.

Once your return has been lodged, the ATO will send your Notice of Assessment in around two weeks time. This will show you due date and list the ATO’s payment options, which will include credit card and Bpay. If you’re lodging on time and have lodged on time in the past, your due date may be a few months away, so check your NoA carefully for your personal due date.

If you’re not in a position to pay your tax bill by the due date, the ATO makes it very simple to set up a payment arrangement. You don’t even need to speak to a person. The easiest way is via your MyGov, or you can call an ATO automated phone service. You can read more information here.

 

I’m sorry, we don’t offer phone appointments. We have decided to focus on doing one thing well, and that is online tax returns through our Express Tax service. This allows us to keep our prices as low as we can in this very competitive industry.  If you’re looking for personalised tax advice without lodging a tax return you may like to consider our 6 Month Unlimited Email Tax Support package.

No. DriveTax is a 100% online business. This allows us to keep costs low, and to service clients across Australia. So we do not offer face to face appointments. If you’re looking for personalised tax advice without lodging a tax return you may like to consider our 6 Month Unlimited Email Tax Support package.

You will need your Uber monthly summaries, and the monthly summaries of other companies you drive for. If you lodged all your BAS’s with DriveTax for the year then we will already have your expense information. If not, you will need your Uber expenses summarised into category totals (e.g. total for fuel, total for insurance, total for mints etc). For more detail, please see our Get Ready Guide.

You must have receipts or records for all expenses you wish to claim. For GST/BAS purposes, for expenses over $82.50 you must have a tax invoice. But for tax return purposes any kind of record is fine, including bank statements. They don’t have to be physical receipts, photos or scans are fine too.

You don’t need to send us your receipts. You just have to keep them filed away for 5 years in case the ATO ask to see them.

You can read more about recordkeeping requirements in our post on Tax Deductions for Uber Drivers.

In order to claim your actual car expenses (fuel, insurance, repairs etc) you must have a valid 12-week logbook with odometer readings at the start and end of every trip.

If you haven’t kept a valid logbook then we will need to use the cents per km method to claim your car deductions instead. This is a maximum of 5,000km x 68 cents per km, giving a maximum deduction of $3,400. You do not need any records for this, the ATO will accept a reasonable estimate of your kms.

You can read more about claiming car expenses in our blog post on Tax Deductions for Uber Drivers.

If you’re looking for the DriveTax Uber Spreadsheet you can download a free copy instantly here.

Your employee income and deductions are included in the tax return fee. We can help with all occupations and all kinds of employee deductions.

Thanks to the new  ‘Single Touch Payroll’ system most employers no longer have to give you a payment summary. Instead they will send your payroll information directly to the ATO and we will download for you. The same goes for your bank interest, private health insurance and certain types of investment income. This saves you the trouble of sending us these documents.
