Offshore worker, 457 visa, Income Tax

Recommended Posts

Guest Charlie C

I am a UK citizen, resident in NZ, working on an Oilfield Diving Support Vessel offshore WA.

 

I am employed by a multination corporation. My direct employer is based in Holland / Singapore (but also has an Australian division)

 

I have a 457 visa.

 

In the past I have spent occasional periods working offshore in Australia (20 - 70 days per year, this year perhaps more.)

 

I have been trying to find out whether my employer has been paying Australian Income Tax. They are proving to be very evasive. The Australian Immigration Authorities are equally vague as to whether tax should be paid.

 

If tax has been paid I assume I can claim this back in NZ (where I pay income tax on all earnings)

 

Can anyone in a similar situation advise me?

What do you mean you are trying to find out if your employer has been paying Aus income tax? Do you mean pay it over on your behalf? :confused: In which case can you not just look at your pay slip?

 

Australian immigration are not there to advise on tax, visa status is not the same as tax status after all.

 

Sorry, I wonder if some clarification is required here very confusing question...

If you aren't an Australian resident and you have no Australian income you aren't liable for Australian taxes
