As a Vygo mentor, you satisfy the legal requirements for working as an independent contractor rather than an employee. This means that Vygo does not withhold any tax when issuing payments, nor do we send out payslips or annual payment summaries. Registering for an Australian Business Number (ABN) in order to legally operate as an independent contractor and paying tax on your earnings is your responsibility as an independent contractor, and you can learn more about these structures on the Australian government website.
You can, however, calculate your earnings using Vygo to see how much you have made mentoring. To do so:
- Navigate to ‘Account’ by clicking the profile picture icon in the top right of the screen.
- From there, click ‘Payout Details’
- Then click ‘Earnings’.
- You will also receive a receipt in your linked email account after each mentoring session has been paid out.
