I would register an ABN anyway. It doesn’t hurt to have one. The upward limit for declaring a ‘hobby’ business on your personal tax return is about $3,000 I think – and June 2010 is still quite a bit away, so worth registering just to be on the safe side (plus, that $3,000 is fully taxable as personal INCOME and doesn’t allow you to then declare business expenses on your tax return).

Note: I iz so NOT an accountant … get accounting advice!
