Tax Invoices & Legal Name
Why we must provide tax invoices.
We need to provide you with a receipt of purchase by law.
The Australian Taxation Office guidelines:
When we make a taxable sales of more than $82.50 (including GST), our GST-registered masseurs need a tax invoice.
If a masseur asks us for a tax invoice, we must provide one within 28 days of their request.
Tax invoices must include at least seven pieces of information:
- that the document is intended to be a tax invoice
- the seller's identity
- the seller's Australian business number (ABN)
- the date the invoice was issued
- a brief description of the items sold, including the quantity (if applicable) and the price
- a statement such as 'Total price includes GST'
- in certain cases the buyer's identity or ABN is required
We don't employ you.
- You are an independent contract merely purchasing a service
- We supply you with tax invoices/receipts to conform to the law
- We don't share your membership details nor do we collect tax from you
- As an independent provider your tax obligations, and how you manage them, are your own affair
- Again to be perfectly clear - we simply need your name so we can give you a receipt for your purchase
