Employees are able to claim their work-related expenses, home-office expenses, and certain elements of travel expenses, income-protection, certain training expenses, donations and accountant fees.
If you are ineligible for Medicare, you don’t have to pay the Medicare Levy, or the Medicare Levy Surcharge (up to 2.5% of your taxable income). We can help prepare the paperwork to achieve the exemption if it applies to you.

As a 457 and 482 visa holder you may be eligible for LAFHA. Recent changes to Australia’s Fringe Benefits Tax (FBT) rules now require that, starting October 2012, the LAFHA be taxed as part of employees’ regular income.
Certain 457 and 482 visa holders with a pre-existing LAFHA agreement may be eligible for a transitional arrangement that will allow them to retain at least some of their LAFHA tax exemption into 2013/14.
If you are a foreign worker on a 457 and 482 visa and still under an LAFHA agreement with your employer, Australian Accountants can advise you as to whether you’re eligible for this transitional arrangement.
