Hiya @Mukti,

 

@MS is right. There is absolutely nothing wrong with working two jobs at the same time. There are more things that change your withholding amount than just your income. There is a calculator available on our website, that will run through a series of questions and tell you how much each employer should be withholding from your weekly pay. If you run through the calculator twice, once with the tax free threshhold and once without it should tell you how much will be withheld in a fortnight. I will post the link below.

Q1. Yes.

Q2. Nominate permanent employer to claim tax free threshold on each pay. The 6 month contract employer does not claim tax free threshold.

Hi @Mukti,

 

You can work whatever hours work for you it doesn't effect your tax.
