  1. Hello people~ I need help to understand the residence calculator on DHA website. Very confused. It says before applying for Citizenship, you must have lived in Australia lawfully for 4 years, including 1 year as a permanent resident. And you cannot have been outside Australia for 12 months total, during the past 4 years. So I did enter my dates in the calculator as seen below. Permanent Residence Date: 31/08/2019 Lawful Residence Date: 07/02/2016 Intended Lodgement Date: 11/09/2020 and the absence dates: From Date: 05 Jun 2016 To Date: 02 Feb 2017 From Date: 30 Apr 2017 To Date: 01 Aug 2017 From Date: 01 Oct 2018 To Date: 23 Dec 2018 From Date: 03 Dec 2019 To Date: 20 Jan 2020 Now the calculator says yes I can apply for Citizenship but we can clearly see that I've been out for 17 months...it doesn't make sense. Also..should I count from the first visa I got in Australia? which was in 2008. or the first visa i got 4 years before the citizenship application. Any help or clarification would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
  2. Hi I've searched online and can't seem to find an Australian calculator online for working out pro-rata salaries. I've been researching many part time roles and they all state 0.6/0.8 (etc..) FT equivalent. There's a really helpful pro rata UK salary online however I just can't find one for Australia. Does anyone know where I could find this? Thanks.

    Tax Calculator?????

    Does anyone know of an online tax calculator that you can enter your earnings etc and amount of kids and child care payments into to give you an accurate calculation of what to expect from your salary. Its easy to find one with the tax bands etc and child care cut offs etc but one that is simple and where you can enter everything into it. Also it would be great if it worked out what childcare rebate etc you get back from the government and rent allowance etc. Any ideas guys. Oh and for Australia of coarse :biggrin:
  7. This calculator is used by thousands of businesses in Australia if they dont have computer systems or pay rates when employing people. Its put there by the government (ATO - Austrailian Tax Office) to provide the correct witholding rate for taxation purposes. TAX Calculator Leave all the examples as they are, this is the usual standard for all employees unless they are under specific personal circumstances. Basically plumb your numbers in i.e. your week pay, gross amount and hit calculate. As said lots of firms use this and then just issue their own payslips and keep the printed ATO version for their Payment Summary (P60) for the year end. It makes only a little differnce at the end of the year when you come to do your tax.

    take home pay calculator

    Help please. We're lucky enough that both my OH and I have had job offers from a Oz firm which seem on paper amazing but I'm struggling to find anywhere anything to help with a ready reckoner for take home pay each month. What and where we can afford to rent if dependent on this really - but what with LAFHA and the different tax bands etc my brain is exploding. Even a quick per $50k earnt say may suffice? Any hints/websites/advice please:confused:

    CPV Queue Calculator???

    Hi All Well - I can't understand the Queue Calculator! Can anybody explain it to me, please? Parent Visa Processing Priorities - Family - Visas & Immigration According to the Calculator when somebody (Lizg?) and I investigated it a few weeks ago, on 30th June 2008 there were about 1,980 CPV 143 applicants in the Queue and about 150 or so CPV 173 applicants. The total for the two came to about 2,140 people, anyway. Which made sense because they could not grant any more visas until the following day. In early Feb the POPC said that about 1,000 applicants had been added to the queue by the end of January 2008, so another 1,000 or so by the end of June seemed reasonable and likely to me. They now seem to have added the July 2008 figures to the CPV part of the Calculator. It now says that the figure for 30th June is 720 in the CPV 143 group and 780 in the same group on 31st July. So does this mean that 720 people are still stuck from 30th June and meanwhile only another 60 CPV143 applicants have been added to the Queue in the space of a month? Surely not because the CPV 143 is by far the biggest of the groups involved in the total quota of 6,500 visas for 2008/9. That is shown by the Minister's own figures when the cap was applied to the 2007/8 quota: Media Release: Capping of Contributory Parent category visas Even if they are shifting the Contributory visas at the rate of 500 a month they will not grant 6,500 of them in 12 months. As far as I can understand the Narrative explaining the Calculator, the Calculator is keeping a straightforward numerical tally of individual humans on legs? It is not working according to a complex statistical formula, in other words? If I am right about that, then surely 720 should look more like 200 people left over from 30th June 2008? If it said that, then I would also buy into the idea that another 560 people were added to the Queue during July 2008, but as it is I cannot fathom the workings of this tool at all???!!! Dunno. It might simply be that the Queue, and therefore the Calculator's figures, will not settle down to something credible until September or October, by which time hopefully everybody who was caught by the application of the cap will have had his/her visa granted? Meanwhile, here is another question: Agents Gateway - Health and Character requirements for parent visa applicants outside Australia Evidently DIAC have decided recently that they will stop making applicants for "parent" visas jump through the medical and police hoops before adding them to the Queue. It seems to me that this will save DIAC money because hitherto they have been checking everything except whether the AoS is in place before adding an applicant to the Queue, and then checking everything all over again before requesting the 2nd Instalment and granting the "parent" visa. So - does this new arrangement apply to applicants for Contributory Parent and Contributory Aged Parent applicants as well? It would make sense if it does because recent events have produced problems for some of the CPV applicants. A simple example is the chap who was told to get his meds done in September 2007 and did so. His chest x-ray produced question marks, so the Medical Officer of the Commonwealth insisted on a Health Undertaking from him. The incidental effect of the Undertaking was that the chap's meds were then only valid for 6 months instead of 12 months. The MOC is highly reluctant to allow more than about 3 months leeway on getting a second chest x-ray done out in Oz. The upshot was that the visa applicant had to do his meds again and in the first instance he has paid the bill for the second meds for himself and his wife in order to get the job done. I don't know whether DIAC have a slush fund out of which a refund could be given for the first - and as it turned out - futile set of meds but this question is set to come up again with some of the applicants caught up in the Capital Investment Scheme tangle as well because that doesn't seem likely to be resolved any time soon. It could be that CPV applicants will be added to the Queue without being asked for meds and pccs first. Whether or not this is so can't be deduced from the above document, I feel. Are they going to give CPV applicants a Queue Date, even? Writing to them to say, "Your Queue Date is dd/mm/yyyy" can only be done at a cost. Presumably they are actually using the Calculator for the CPV Queue despite the narrative seeming to be uncertain about whether or not it will be necessary to do so? The whole thing looks like a disorganised, incoherent muddle to me, to be honest. If I were an Agent with CPV applicant clients who were/are depending on me to advise them fully & properly about how their CPV applications will work, I would be straight on to the POPC and getting to the bottom of these queries in order to make myself able to provide accurate, detailed advice to my clients. Best wishes Gill
