Tax Residency

Expats: Australian income tax rates

Expats do not pay tax on their foreign income.  But they must still pay tax on any income derived in Australia such as bank interest, dividends, rental income etc.

Expats pay a different rate of tax on their Australian income to that of an Australian resident.  Set out below are the current tax rates for non-residents
