If the PSI is not qualified for the current condition, the business will be a Personal Services Business (PSB). Once an individual is classified as a PSB, apart from the requirement of declaring any PSI on a tax return, there are no changes to the individual tax obligations.
As for PSB determination, two ways to be classified as using Personal Service Income Tool or Completing the PSB determination application form. Unusual business circumstances occur if the following is met
- Business is temporary (< 12 Months) and out of the ordinary
- An individual passed the test in one or more previous income years
