Drive with Uber?

We've got your tax sorted!

Are your taxes driving you up the wall?


We specialise in filing income tax returns for the self-employed. We know working for yourself can be tricky enough without the extra stress of filing your taxes, so WooHoo is here to help.

As an Uber driver-partner, you're required to file an individual income tax return (IR3) with IRD, outlining your income and all expenses incurred in earning this income. As an Uber Momentum Partner, you're entitled to a discount off our services.

What you'll need to apply with us


  • Your Momentum Referral Code
  • Your approximate Uber mileage (available in your Uber Partner app or Partner Dashboard)
  • Your IRD number
  • Photo ID (NZ Driver Licence or NZ Passport is best)
  • An NZ bank account number



 

Momentum Offers

The following discounts are applied to our Standard Tax Return Package, which includes a single IR3 filing including claiming on work-related expenses, 50 transactions (a transaction is a single amount of income or expense that we're required to process individually for your tax return. e.g. A receipt or spreadsheet), and tax expertise and advice.

Handy tips for making your tax returns easy!

Put away your tax

Put away your tax

As all income earned as an Uber driver-partner needs to be declared to IRD and will be taxed accordingly, it's a good idea to put away 1/3 of your additional income each week.

This may take some discipline, but it will get easier the more you do it. It's far easier than paying off a large tax debt at the end of the year!

Send us your receipts

Send us your receipts

As soon as you sign up you can start sending through receipts for expenses. Better to send them straight away than risk losing them!

Each receipt you send us counts towards 1 of your total 50 free transactions. If you're going to send us more than 50 in a tax year we recommend sending us a spreadsheet with your expense information instead, this only counts as 1.

Know what to claim

Know what to claim

It's important to know what you can claim as an expense. For most Uber driver-partners this is reasonably simple. You can claim on the petrol you used during your Uber trips, general car maintenance, and things like mobile data.

Please be aware that you cannot claim on personal expenses, such as buying lunch, or clothing, as these are not work-related expenses.
