The prohibition of point 357 (1) is directed against an employer who makes a specific request to an employee or potential worker. The prohibited representation concerns the character of the contract that exists or would exist between the employer and the worker as an employment contract under which the worker would work or work. The content of the prohibited representation is that the employment contract is or would be a service contract under which the worker exercises or works as an independent contractor. The personal services test introduced by the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997 (Cth) is no different from the common law test set out above, but a person judged by a court as an independent contractor will not necessarily have the same status under this legislation.43 Contractors also receive the gross amount of income and are generally required to meet their own tax obligations, but an independent contractor and a company can enter into a voluntary withholding tax agreement on compensation payments.41 Income provisions for personal services A self-employed person can often claim a much wider range of deductions on their expenses.

You`re so happy to have been hired, but the person you`re hiring for has given you a name: “independent contractor.” What does that mean? What is this business relationship? Can you come to the company`s picnic? Individuals such as physicians, dentists, veterinarians, lawyers, accountants, contractors, subcontractors, public stenographers or corporate senders who are in an independent profession where they offer their services to the general public are generally independent contractors. However, whether these individuals are self-employed or workers depends on the facts. The general rule is that a person is an independent contractor if the payer has the right to control or direct only the outcome of the work and not what is done and how it is done. The income of a person who works as an independent contractor is subject to the self-employment tax.
The Independent Contractors Act 2006 (Cth) promotes the freedom to establish genuine independent contractual relationships. When an employer is not entitled to do the work of a party, but can only provide an overview of the claims, the relationship between the parties is the recruitment of an independent party/contractor. If a worker is an independent contractor, the rental party is not required to make any of these payments.
