Making Money From Airtasker And How It Works

Making Money From Airtasker And How It Works

Airtasker is a Sydney based platform which provides an online marketplace enabling outside users to outsource every day tasks. Since it first launched in 2012, it has grown rapidly.

It works by allowing people to post a task for whatever price they believe is fair, and workers can then compete for the job. This includes everything from website design to walking someone’s dog, driving your car to collect a package or running a small errand.

But how much money can you really make?

The company recently reported the highest earning person using its platform was a painter who earned $171k over a 12-month period.

Not bad, given this equates to a salary of about $81,500 per year compared to the average annual earnings of $60,892.

But if you plan to work via Airtasker remember the platform takes 15% as a commission for each job.

Secondly, most work requires cost of materials or other costs associated with the job so it’s important to factor these costs in as well.

If you earn less than $75,000 a year you will not need to register for GST. However as the money earned via Airtasker is an income, it needs to be included on your tax return. You can also claim a deduction for the fees that Airtasker has charged you.
