Junior Umpire Questions

Hi just wondering if Junior umps get paid? Young lad wants to get involved, is it all cash in hand? He's only 14, does he need a tax file number etc? He'll be umpiring social ball. Cheers

"Volunteers" can get paid and not have to declare it for tax purposes.
As a junior I see no reason why that wouldn't apply for your yound lad.
I work with a soccer club as a trainer and $5000k is still non declarable.

Still a good idea for him to get a TFN though - he doesn't have to do anything with it if he stays under the threshold and he's going to need one sooner or later anyway.

Good on him for wanting to get involved as a ref!

Suggest contacting Basketball SA to see when the next referee course is. If he hasn't done one, there is a development pathway to follow.

Basketball refereeing is classified under "Hobby" and no tax has to be paid.
