Hi Bert,

$75k rule is only applicable for registering for GST.

ABN is not compulsory but it is almost impractical to do business without an ABN. Because all Government related activities are interlinked with ABN.

In the case of the OP’s query, he can get an Invoice/Receipt from the singer. But, the singer can’t charge any GST. The singer might consider this as income from hobby.

I don’t see why should anybody withhold 49% of the invoice for not quoting ABN in this case. Clearly the singer is not carrying on a business.
