Our tax teams can help expatriates and their employers deal with Australian tax and employment visa matters.

Expatriates taking up employment here are subject to Australia’s comprehensive tax rules and employment visa requirements. Employees who are required to live away from their usual place of residence are also entitled to various benefits. Appropriate structuring of such benefits as part of the compensation package can result in significant tax savings. We can assist expatriates and their employers in identifying Australian tax planning opportunities, reviewing tax equalisation policies and provide compliance services regarding Australian tax filing requirements.

Grant Thornton can assist with matters such as:

  • pre-arrival procedures
  • employment visas
  • tax charges including income and other taxes
  • benefits in kind
  • expatriate concessions
  • relief for foreign taxes
  • deductions
  • tax returns & compliance
  • government benefits and rebates

 

Likewise, if you are an Australian travelling abroad, we can assist with advice on expat tax requirements in your destination country, via Grant Thornton’s extensive international network.
