    Far out that's not much is it! I'm self employed, do they take into account business out goings?

    You're generally better off working anyway (I know I am).

    You can earn up to $1800 a fortnight before you get nothing. Not sure what the beginning of the mark is for payments to reduce though.

    You can still get a partial payment if your income is less than around $1900 before tax a fortnight.

    I think it's around $190/fn you can earn before you start losing PPS.
    You still generally end up better off.

    Perhaps suss out the calculators on the centrelink site, they should give you a more accurate picture of your circumstance and entitlements.

    If your self employed you need to give them copies of the previous financial year tax return. Not just your assessment notice, the whole return. Then they work out what you get based on that. If you think you'll earn more or less then you let them know and they adjust it. It's better than having to report fortnightly.
