What are my tax obligations as a Driver?

Independent contractors are responsible for meeting their own tax obligations for GST, income tax and provisional tax. If you are unsure what your obligations are, the Inland Revenue Department’s website is a good source of information and a tax agent or accountant would also be able to help.

The weekly earnings summary GST registered contractors receive is designed to make filing GST returns easier. It has a ‘total earnings for the year’ section which outlines 1) how much GST has been paid to DriveHer during the financial year, and 2) how much GST has been received from riders. Contractors are obligated to declare the amount received on their GST returns, but can also declare the amount they have paid in order to offset the total amount they are required to pay to the Inland Revenue. Please ensure that you inform us if you are already signed up as a driver and decide to register for GST at a later date so that we can issue you the correct earnings summary.

The ‘total earnings for the year’ section will also assist registered and non-registered contractors with filing their income tax returns.

Will I need to change my insurance?

It’s important to make sure you are insured while you are driving for DriveHer. Commercial insurance replaces your current personal insurance, and covers you for both business and personal use. This will increase your premiums slightly – contact your insurance company as they will be able to tell you how much the difference will be and switch that over easily for you.

What is a Certificate of Fitness?
This replaces your Warrant of Fitness when you are driving your car for a commercial passenger service. The checks undertaken are a bit more thorough, to make sure that you and your passengers are going to be as safe as possible on the road.
