Non-resident Investor and Worker Tax
Non-residents taxpayers and expats who earn income in Australia are generally required to prepare annual tax returns like the rest of us. However, the normal tax rules we know of are modified in many situations.
If you have assets in Australia, like real estate, bank deposits, superannuation, shares and other investments, ask yourself this:
- do you know the capital gains tax issues involved as a non-resident?
- will you have to pay tax here and in your home country?
- is there a way to defer tax?
- will you plan to return to Australia and how will this change your tax profile?
