Immigration

  • In sending my employees to Australia, what visas do they need?
  • If my employee has a business tourist visa, can they work in Australia?
  • Are there differences between temporary and permanent visas?
  • Is there a minimum rate my employees need to be paid in Australia?

Tax

  • What is the best way to package benefits for employees who are coming to work in Australia?
  • If I provide housing, car, cell phone, computer and other benefits to an employee relocating to Australia – will this result in a Fringe Benefits Tax (FBT) liability for me?
  • How do I comply with income tax, Goods and Services Tax (GST) and State based taxes?
  • Am I protected by double taxation agreements (DTAs) with Australia?
  • Will my employee be able to claim a Foreign Income Tax Offset (FITO)?
  • Do I have obligations to provide a pension or ‘superannuation’ for my employee in Australia?
  • Will my employee have their own self-managed superannuation fund? Or, will I use an industry superannuation fund?
  • Is my ‘employee’ an employee or an independent contractor?
  • Will my employee need assistance dealing with their tax planning and compliance with local/foreign income tax obligations?
  • Is my employee moving with their family and will they have time to address their own affairs relating to their global assets?
  • Will my employee be eligible for Medicare?
