medicare

Medicare is the governing body of the Australian public health system. If you are on a Working Holiday Visa 417, then you may be eligible for Medicare cover during your stay in Australia. Citizens of the UK, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Netherlands, Republic of Ireland and NZ are covered for the duration of your approved time in Australia. Citizens of Malta and Italy are covered by Medicare for a period of 6 months from the date of arrival in Australia. Medicare covers treatment that is deemed ‘medically necessary’. This means any sickness or injury which occurs while you are in Australia and requires treatment before you return home.

tax file number

A tax file number (TFN) is a number issued by the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) to identify an individual or organization for tax purposes. Each taxpaying entity (an individual, company, superannuation fund, partnership, or trust) has a unique TFN, which has eight or nine digits. Your TFN is your personal reference number in the tax and super systems. Your TFN is an important part of your tax and super records as well as your identity, so keep it secure. When we issue you with a TFN it’s yours for life. You keep the same TFN even if you change your name, change jobs, move interstate or go overseas. You don’t have to have a TFN, but without one you pay more tax. You also won’t be able to apply for government benefits, lodge your tax return electronically or get an Australian business number (ABN).

tax return

After all your hard work you will want to get back every penny to make your time in Australia even more unforgettable so we can even help you claim back all your tax at the end of the tax year. We will do all the boring paperwork so you don’t have too. Just sit back, relax and wait for the $$$!
