    Hey people,

    Just need some help when applying for an ABN, so I can do some freelance web design work.

    For “Business activity description” do I select select ‘other’ or ‘professional artist’? I’m thinking ‘other’ suits better.

    Will ibe contracting? “Are you applying for an ABN to operate as a contractor”? I’m thinking ‘yes’?

    Will your work agreement allow you to pay another person to perform work on your behalf?* I’m thinking ‘yes’?

    Will you be responsible for providing heavy machinery to undertake your business activity?* thinking ‘No’

    then finally it asks why im applying for an ABN, It has a couple options which i think could work. ‘Contract/sub-contract’ or ‘To provide a service’

    Can someone please clarify if these seem like the correct choices for a web designer?

    thanks again

    rob.

    Will ibe contracting? “Are you applying for an ABN to operate as a contractor”? I’m thinking ‘yes’?I would say ‘yes’

    Will your work agreement allow you to pay another person to perform work on your behalf?* I’m thinking ‘yes’?If you put ‘yes’ than you can expand later on to have other people contracted through you (sub-contractors)

    Will you be responsible for providing heavy machinery to undertake your business activity?* thinking ‘No’I would think ‘no’ too

    then finally it asks why im applying for an ABN, It has a couple options which i think could work. ‘Contract/sub-contract’ or ‘To provide a service’I would say ‘contract/subcontract’

    All the best
