One of the mistake which Uber driver make is to rely on bank statement for expense entries, for example if there is an entry in the bank statement of Caltex $700, the User driver will categorise it as fuel expense, and claim GST, but ATO don’t recognise the bank statement entries as a proper substitution evidence, and if there is a tax audit, the Uber driver might not be claim those expenses and have to refund the GST claimed, pay shortfall penalty and also higher taxes.

A second commonly happened mistake is Uber driver do not keep log book , as the car which the drive is a passenger car, hence if they don’t keep a logbook conforming to the ATO standard, then if you’re caught with tax audit, ATO might argue that that they don’t know the weight of a business percentage for the car, hence as result you can not claim any money for the car related expenses which is the bulk of the expenses for UBER driver.
