Uber Driver Accounting - How to correctly account

AS an Uber driver we need to capture income and expense for the purpose of GST reporting.

Uber drivers pay GST from $0

Uber drivers get paid the total fair - the fees paid to UBER

i am using the QB mobile app, and have not found a way to capture this.

Essentially we are sent a statement from Uber each week which shows the total payout. Payout is broken down into

Fares - Total

Fees (deducted)

Payout (including GST)

In an example where the overal fares charged is $100, drivers will see about $70 in there account. 

However 2 things have happened to get to that point 

1) $100 is paid including around $10 worth of GST to the driver (from the rider)

2) $30 is paid from the driver to Uber as service fees which accounts for $3 GST and $27 fee

3) GST net would be $10 received and $3 paid, meaning i need to pay ATO $7 on GST.

Issue is bank feed only see the $70 and i have not seen anyway i can capture all this other stuff?


IM using the QB self employed phone app

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
