    Lidl coming to Australia

    Kaufland is totally different from Aldi and Lidl. It is not a discounter but a full range supermarket. They also some clothes, books, car and bike stuff, household items and other non-food items as well as a counter for fresh meat and cheese. I don't like to shop at Kaufland so much because of the dark narrow alleys and I always find it hard to find what I am looking for (at least over here in Germany). Anyway, it will be good to have another competitor on the market to challenge Coles and Wollworth.

    First, you have to check if you are a resident or non-resident for tax-purposes: https://www.ato.gov.au/Calculators-and-tools/Host/?anchor=AreYouAResident&anchor=AreYouAResident&anchor=AreYouAResident/questions#AreYouAResident/questions Then you can see how much tax you pay. It also depends on your income: https://www.ato.gov.au/Rates/Individual-income-tax-rates/?page=1#Foreign_residents This tool helps you to calculate your tax and your netto income: http://www.paycalculator.com.au/
