Dear Friend,

Hello and welcome. Thank you for providing an opportunity to assist you.

YES.. CERTAINLY. I would strongly advice you to get ABN and also register for GST. I will explain why I am suggesting this.

You must be aware that ATO has asked to obtain ABN and obtain GST registration as well. UBER has appealed against this ruling. You, as a Uber Driver, should take a note of the point that Uber have advised drivers at this stage not to apply for an ABN or register for GST, while they challenge the ATO’s decision. However the penalties and consequences fall on you, not Uber, if you fail to meet your tax obligations.

So, coming to your point, YES, you should get your ABN while driving for UBER.

I am sure this would help..
