    Default Declaring wages

    HI everyone sorry if this is posted in the wrong spot. I am new!

    I am currently 8mths pregnant- I am employed but not getting many shifts. My partner is a shearer and due to bad weather he hasn't had many shifts in the last 2 months resulting in us heading down struggle street!

    I recently went to centrelink to see if I can get payments to help out and I can, but I have to declare what we earn every fortnight.

    Trouble I'm having and question I am asking is today I went to claim on the Internet for the first time and I have to either put in business ABN or search their name. As I said my partner is a shearer, he does work for a contractor which is easy for me to claim this work because I have that employers details but for the work he has done for private farmers I can't put in their ABNs or search them because they are not really his employees!
    Do I just not tell centrelink about this pay? I don't want to get caught and have to pay back money. He is getting paid by cheque & tax is being taken out.
    Any help/ advice / suggestions regarding this would be appreciated. I tried calling centrelink but waiting on the ph for 45mins in so irritating!
    Thanks

    He should legally be provided with payslips. The information you need would all be on the slip.

    How does he do his tax return at the end of the financial year?

    Can't he just ask them for the details? As PP said he should also have payslips with the details.

    private farmers don't do payslips it's just the way farmers are. He does his tax because when they do their tax they send out the ppl they have had work for them through out the year their group certificates.
    Thanks for your help.
    Think I'll just call them!

    If its the same farmers as last financial year, you should be able to get their ABNs from the group certificates. Otherwise he should be able to ask for them. Is it possible to do an ABN search for their business names? Centrelink should be able to help

    Good luck
