Hobby Or Business What is the difference?

If you bake a few cakes and sell them at a local market or on Facebook or make cakes that you sell to friends, you might think it can't possibly be taxable.

If you are marketing your hobby, have a Facebook page, taking referrals/ requests/ orders,
it is questionable if this is a hobby rather than a business?
Every year, the ATO pursues thousands of taxpayers who thought they had a hobby but it considered they had a business and taxed them accordingly.
So if you answer yes to any of these questions, your hobby might well have tipped over into being a small business:

Is your activity being undertaken for commercial reasons?
Do you undertake it to make a profit?
Do you regularly and repeatedly undertake your activity?
Is it planned, organised and carried out in a business-like manner?
The upside of being treated as a business, of course, is that as well as declaring your income you can also claim deductions for all your business-related costs. This includes food licensing registration and set up costs including business mentoring.

As an experienced self-publisher for 2 Cake Baking and Decorating book, I suggested to the Logan Chamber of Commerce, I could do the same for a collaboration business book.

As a volunteer committee member for the last 3 years and Logan Business expo organiser I could see the potential of what our members have their experience and advise is print-worthy!

Business 2 Business
Last year, recognising the talent the Chamber of Commerce had access to, Jackie proposed that we pull together and write a book about doing business in Logan. While the committee agreed that this was a good idea, the book would not have happened without Jackie’s determination to herd these particular cats.
The result is the first book by an Australian Chamber of Commerce with sales both locally and across the state.
During the COVID shutdowns, the Chamber wanted to provide members with a way to connect and decided on a webinar series. Using the chapters of the book as a guide, we managed to record 14 weekly webinars, featuring the authors of each chapter. None of this would have been possible without the work Jackie did in compiling the book in the first place.
Jackie has been a real asset to the Logan Chamber of Commerce, and I recommend her on her abilities, attitude and determination. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
Stewart Fleming.
Logan Chamber of Commerce President.
