My understanding is that they’re being forced to pay GST on earnings even if under the GST limit. Simply because they’re classified as Taxi drivers.
e.g. paying GST if they earn $3,000 for the year.

This is another common misunderstanding of the GST system, as a business, we don’t pay GST on income received, we collect it from the client and pass it to the ATO. It is one shortcoming of a lot of business’s in assuming the money belongs to them.

As they are registered for GST, they should include 10% GST on their prices, which they pass to the tax office.
