My question is currently working holiday maker employee after their working holiday visa expired then change to other visa type. For example change to student visa. As an employer, how should we count withhold tax on those situation? do we have to issue two separerate pay summary at end of the year for those employees? as visa changed, are they change to Australian resident for tax purposes?

Hi @SH,


Welcome to our Community!


Generally speaking if an employee's circumstances change during a financial year, such as their residency status, they're required to notify you of the change by completing a Tax file number (TFN) declaration form. You'll then need to withhold tax based on the information they have provided in the TFN declaration form and provide 2 separate payment summaries at the end of the financial year. The individual themselves will need to determine if they are an Australian resident for tax purposes.

 

If you have further questions you can phone us on 13 28 61 between 8am - 6pm, Monday to Friday to speak with an operator.

 

Thanks.
