Tax residency for part year resident

Initiate

Hello,

 

I have a complicated situation to assess my residency and tax declarations requirement:

 

I worked in Singapore until October 2018, but I was in Australia from mid August to mid October under a 400 visa, working for the Sydney branch of my company (still employed by Singapore). In parallel, my partner and I applied for PR end of October (onshore) and obtained bridging visa. My work contract ended in october. I then stayed in France from Nov18 and definitely (hopefully, if the PR comes through!) settled in Australia early Jan 2019. I have not yet worked since my work contract in Singapore.

 

For the FY 18-19, when did I became a tax resident in Australia and from what date will I need to declare foreign income ? Do I declare income perceived from X date, or is it on the entire financial year (ending June or ending Dec as the latter applies to Singapore) ?

 

Thank you!
