I am on the Independent Pathway and have verbally negotiated a percentage of billings as a sole trader and have provided ABN and banking details. I have been asked to form a company so I can be paid. The reason given was so the practice can avoid pay-roll tax and GST.
You are absolutely under no obligation to form a Company in order to be paid by the practice. We encourage you to continue to engage in discussions with your practice and inform them of any challenges you may be experiencing.
If your practice continues not to pay you despite trying to engage with them, then we would suggest contacting the Fair Work Ombudsman for assistance in the matter.
