    I've crossed the thin line of commercialism using my Phantom to assist a friend in making an ad for his company. He hasn't paid me yet so I guess I don't need a license/company/permit...etc YET.... It was the tightened edit of an earlier video, colour graded to give it a more camo look (appropriate for his business) and shorter for our limited attention spans.

    Nice job, I am also going to be doing some videos that are not for payment but for others to get an indication if there would be any interest and if it would be worth pursuing getting the licensing needed to commercially shoot aerial video in Australia. Our laws like most of the world are quite backwards still and I honestly cant justify the cost of going commercial and will gladly keep it a non profit hobby. Very non profit as its more a money pit with no income stream but if there would be enough interest then it may be worth my time to consider this though I still find that highly unlikely and not the reason I got into this hobby.

    There has been some interest and people have asked me to do some videos but my first few projects I am being very picky and only doing things I am interested in. I have been stalling and originally was wondering about getting payment in some way but have come to the conclusion that even for a few thousand dollars its not worth the risk as the fines would be way more then I would charge for such work. Simply getting permission to fly in places and practice my skills and video editing is more then enough payment for me.

    Hi,

    Have you thought letting you pay in another form ? Tell your customer to buy you a needed accessory eg. he buys and pays for it and then he gives you it as a present because you are a good friend. In this way you did not get paid

    ¿ or ?

    Tax authority has to demonstrate that he paid which in this case is not the case. Very simple.
