Accountant/Tax report

Hi guys,

Do one of you talked with an accountant who knows Uber.

I do it as a part time job and I can figure out making 20-25k of revenue before expenses. Since I make less than 30k, I think I don't have to register as a business. But I wonder what can I deduct, if I can deduct the depreciation of the car (% of the value) or on the usage ($/km). If I can deduct my cellphone bill, part of it or if I would need to have a separate phone.

Also, do you think it worth it to get a 4th class driving license and commercial insurance. I'm afraid that my insurance won't cover if they find out I was driving for Uber and I saw at few place on this forum that Uber won't help you if you get in an accident while driving, their insurance policy only cover riders.

Thanks for your comments!

Track all your bus kms and keep a log by date.
bus km as % of total km is the rate you'll use to calculate bus deductions of total fuel, r&m, insurance, depn, etc.

Since phone is essential I plan to deduct 100% of my phone cost but opinions could vary.

Class 4 and insurance discussions are for another day as this is the biggest unspoken risk in the market right now. I call it a huge grey zone and would like some jurisdiction/city/govt/uber/insurance company to make headway on it for the others to follow.

Disclaimer - as always consult a professional and get make your own decisions on acctg/tax, etc.
