Tax return services for 457 and other employer sponsorship visa holders in Australia
Most employer sponsored visa holders are treated as a temporary resident for income tax purposes, means you DO NOT have to pay tax on most of your foreign income. Temporary visas are distinguished from permanent visas, which allow a person to remain in Australia indefinitely. As an Australian resident for tax purposes:
- you’re entitled to the tax-free threshold – this means there is no tax on your income up to a certain amount
- you may have to pay the Medicare levy.
Australian residents for tax purposes generally pay a lower rate of tax than foreign residents. Once you’ve left Australia and your visa has been cancelled you can apply for a superannuation refund which is called Departing Australia superannuation payment (DASP).
¹ Our flat rate fee excludes complex returns with supplementary sections such as investment property, capital gain and business.
