I’m looking for some general advice please. I’ve just started to deliver on a self employed basis for Uber Eats and I’m not quite 100% how to report their payments to me. Just to set the scene, I get a paid for delivering and it is calculated as follows. Pick up - fixed fee, mileage and delivery fee - fixed fee. Uber then take a fee from this. As an example and from what I can make out, I have an invoice raised on my behalf by Uber to McDonalds for £6.58. Its made up of £2.72 mi × £1.50/mi (£4.08) Pick up fee £1.40 and delivery fee £1.10. I will be paid £5.59 as Uber took a fee of £1.65 and added a “boost” of £0.66
So I think my question is (sorry for the boring detail lol) Do I set up a client as McDonalds and invoice them for £6.58. Then set up Uber as a supplier and invoice them for the £1.65 fee and add a discount for the 66p? OR can I simply create the client as Uber and invoice them for my fee of £5.59 and I’m just overcomplicating this for myself?
There doesn’t seem to be much support from Ubers sides, so I have no idea how other drivers are doing this.
Thank you in advance for any advice you can offer
