Contractor or Employee?
- 30 minute talk
Are those contractors you work with really contractors, or would the Australian Tax Office actually regard them as employees?
Not stuff you generally want to have to worry about, but considering the misconceptions around this topic ("rules" that people think exist but that aren't actually relevant), it's quite important to know the facts as getting it wrong can cost you a lot of money in fines and back-payment of compulsory Super and WorkCover. And perhaps sadly, "I didn't know" is not a viable defence. So really, it's best to get it right.
Similarly, if you are a contractor, there are things you should know - and perhaps you're actually an employee...
In this session, Arjen provides some clarity on this topic, having explored these topics for his own company not too long ago.
