  • Fact 21

    As overseas travel became more common in the 1960s, the ATO stopped issuing tax clearance certificates (which had previously reminded Australians planning on travel that they must ensure they had paid all tax owed prior to leaving the country).

Business / enterprise

A business is any activity where goods or services are sold with the intention of making a profit. If the activity has not been set up with the aim of making a profit then it is considered to be a hobby. A business does not include:

  • private recreational activities and hobbies
  • activities carried on as an employee, labour hire worker, director or office holder
  • activities carried on by individuals (other than the trustees of charitable funds) or partnerships without a reasonable expectation of profit or gain.
