Employee/contractor decision tool

Use the Employee/contractor decision tool to find out whether your worker is an employee or contractor for tax and super purposes.

Employees work in your business and are part of your business.

Contractors run their own business and provide services to your business.

Who should use the decision tool?

If your business engages and pays workers, you should use this decision tool.

The tool is not designed for situations where you:

  • enter into an agreement with a company, partnership or trust for them to provide a worker

  • obtain workers through an intermediary such as a labour hire or on-hire firm

  • are a labour hire or on-hire firm.

What this decision tool gives you

After answering some questions about the working arrangement, you will receive a report that gives you:

  • an answer about whether your worker is an employee or contractor for tax and super purposes

  • a summary of the responses you have provided

  • information about the tax and super obligations you need to meet.
