Business Intent

To determine whether an activity or series of activities amounts to a business, the activity needs to be considered against the main indicators of a business.

These include:

  • an intention to engage in commercial activity
  • an intention to make a profit from the activity
  • the recurrent or regular nature of the activity
  • that activity is carried on in a similar manner to that of other businesses in the same or similar trades
  • activity is systematic, organised and carried on in a businesslike manner and records are kept
  • the activities are of a reasonable size and scale
  • a business plan exists
  • the entity has relevant knowledge or skill

Not all these indicators need to be present for you to be carrying on a business, however it would be expected that your activity would meet several of these indicators.

Business Intent

If you rent out a residential property on a regular or continuous basis you are carrying on an enterprise for ABN purposes and are entitled to an ABN.

An activity is:

  • 'continuous' if there is no significant cessation or interruption to the activity
  • 'regular' if it is repeated at reasonably close intervals.  The intervals do not need to be fixed.

Do you need an ABN when renting out residential property?

If you let out residential premises where the whole of the premises is to be used predominantly for residential accommodation purposes, you do not need an ABN for pay as you go withholding purposes.

Business Intent

An activity is:

  • 'continuous' if there is no significant cessation or interruption to it
  • 'regular' if it repeated at reasonably close intervals.  The intervals do not need to be fixed.

Business Intent

A 'reasonable expectation' is more than a possibility, risk or chance of the event occurring. A reasonable expectation of profit or gain is determined by whether, looking at all the circumstances, a reasonable person would conclude that there is a reasonable expectation of profit or gain. For the purposes of determining whether, objectively, there is a reasonable expectation of profit or gain, one factor to consider is that particular kinds of enterprises may take longer to become profitable and may make an overall loss initially.

'Profit or gain' refers to concepts commonly used in the commercial world and can encompass a 'profit or gain' of an income or capital nature.
