The ATO has released an updated, mobile-friendly version of the employee/contractor tool to help businesses correctly meet their tax and super obligations for their workers.

The decision tool is accessible through any mobile device. Provided the answers reflect the actual engagement arrangements, businesses will get a result they can rely on about whether their worker is an employee or contractor.

Any business owner who uses this tool will be in no doubt about how to meet the tax and super obligations for their workers. Incorrectly treating employees as contractors is a problem in many industries, in particular the building and construction, cleaning, road transport and security industries.
