Worried you’re missing part of your refund? Remember, the low and middle income tax offset isn’t a refund on its own – it’s used to offset (or reduce) the amount of tax you pay. The offset amount you may be entitled to is automatically applied and could range between $255-$1080, depending on things like your taxable income and how much tax you’ve paid.

Hi,

 

In regards to preparing a 2019 tax return, one of our clients is currently on a Bridging A visa.

She got granted the BVA on the 29th of March 2019. 

Before that, she was on the 485 temporary graduate visa.

 

My question is:

- what do I have to do in her return if she's on a bridging A visa

- if she was on 2 different vias during the year - what does this affect?

 

Thank you.

Hello,

Both of those visas could allow your client to work in Australia. The only thing you need to consider in the tax return is if your client was a resident for tax purposes or not and if that status changed throughout the year. This can mean a change to the tax rate.
