Mr Keeler

Working for a company longer than 6 months..

Recommended Posts

Im currently working for my uncle in a transport company, but my 6 months are up in 2 weeks. My 2nd year visa ends in august so i was hoping to stay on until then!

I was thinking, what if i got an ABN, i would be classed as self employed but working under my "business name" so would i still be able to work for them? how does it work? Can someone shed some light please as i would love to keep working!!

 

Thankyou in advance for any responses.

No, you can't get an ABN to get round the 6 month rule.

 

DIBP specifically say:

 

'You cannot stay in the same position with an employer for more than six months by using different employment agencies, business affiliates or sub-contracting arrangements.'
