Do you earn Personal Service Income (PSI)?

PSI is income that is mainly a reward for the personal efforts and skills of individuals like finance professionals, medical practitioners, IT consultants, etc.

If you receive PSI, PSI rules may apply to your business structure i.e. Company, trust, partnership, etc. This means you effectively ignore the structure that is in place and so, you will be taxed as if you were an employee.

Several types of deductions that may be available to you as a business will be disallowed if PSI rules apply to you. However, if you pass the four tests, you may be classified as a Personal Service Business (PSB) and so, PSI rules will not apply to your income. It is important that you get it right.
