Recording your own transactions
DiDi Task is a platform that connects Customers and Taskers. Since no payment transactions take place through the DiDi app, DiDi Task does not collect, record or maintain any transaction history. As such, DiDi Task will not be able to provide you any periodic earnings or income statements or tax summaries.
Tax and DiDi Task
Your earnings from DiDi Task are subject to both GST as well as income tax. It is your own responsibility to comply with the relevant taxation laws. DiDi Task does not charge, collect or pay any taxes on your behalf.
Thus, we highly recommend that you keep a cash / receipt book to maintain your own records of all transactions and income arising out of your DiDi Task activities, as well as to issue a receipt to the customer in case they request for one.

Does DiDi pay tax for me?
As a Tasker, you independently provide Task services. You are neither an employee nor a contractor of DiDi. As such, you are responsible for reporting all income and paying all relevant taxes associated with your activities.
Will DiDi Task provide me with an invoice or periodic tax summary?
Since DiDi Task is purely a platform allowing Customers and Taskers to agree Tasks and all transactions between you and the customer take place outside of the app, DiDi Task does not maintain any transaction records and cannot provide a summary of tasks and related income.
