Taxation of Personal Service Income (PSI) - Things You Need to Know
If you are running a business of providing personal services in Australia, you may be a subject to PSI rules that affect how your income is taxed and what deductions you can claim.
PSI rules are designed to prevent individuals from getting any tax benefit from diverting their personal service income. Common examples include employing associates or conducting business through a company or trust, for the purpose of distributing income to taxpayers in lower tax brackets.
Unfortunately, we see it too often that business owners make these mistakes without realising the consequences.
