To do any freelance work you require an ABN (Australian Business Number) or the business/company you do the work for has to subtract 48% of your fee as tax and submit it to the ATO. As most businesses don’t like the extra work in doing this they prefer a provider to have an ABN and to organise their own tax. See more at http://www.ato.gov.au
