Hi @sing11


Thanks for your question.

 

How you are taxed in Australia depends on your residency status.  Your residency for tax purposes may be different to your residency for immigration purposes.  If you’re unsure of your residency for tax purposes, you can use our residency calculator .

 

If you’re a non-resident, then generally speaking only income you earn in Australia would be assessable income and subject to your marginal tax rate.

 

If you’re a resident, then all your income would be assessable. 

 

Hope this helps
