Its not technically compulsory to have an ABN but it is practically very hard to operate without one unless you are happy receiving only 51% of your income.

True, but I know at least 2 people who operate without an ABN, put in all their tax returns, and are above board. But one has never had anyone withhold 49% and the other it has happened to twice,

And in reality you do not just recieve 51% of your income if it is withheld, at the end of the year when you do your tax return the balance is retunred to you anyhow.
