Because you’re not an employee of Mable, you will not receive a group certificate at the end of the year that employers typically provide. Instead, we will provide you with a statement of the money you have earned through the platform from July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2018.

Whether you are working through Mable to ‘top up’ your earnings from another job, or you’re working full time for multiple clients through the platform, you will need to remember to lodge your tax return by 31 October.

We’ve created this quick infographic to help you get started thinking about what you need to do.

As a self-employed worker, you should set aside some of your earnings for tax time. 20-30% is a good benchmark. Check out individual tax rates here or, use the ATO tax calculator.[/cs_text][/cs_column][/cs_row][cs_row inner_container=”true” marginless_columns=”false” style=”margin: 0px auto;padding: 20px 0px 0px;”][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/2″ class=”cs-ta-center” style=”padding: 0px;”][x_image type=”none” src=”https://mable.com.au/wp-content/uploads/Arrow-1.png” alt=”” link=”false” href=”#” title=”” target=”” info=”none” info_place=”top” info_trigger=”hover” info_content=””][cs_text class=”bc-pad-30″]

If you have, make sure you get all your records in order:

1. Mable will send a statement of your earnings after June 30

2. Organise all records of other income.

3. Make a list of your tax-deductible expenses and ensure you keep receipts.
