What about taxation?

Educators are responsible for managing their business practices in accordance with Australian taxation laws and for establishing and maintaining their own business records.  Educators are encouraged to seek advice from an accountant in relation to record keeping.

Who pays superannuation?

Educators who are Self-Employed are responsible for paying their own superannuation.
