Backpackers are people frequently traveling to Australia for work purposes. Previously, they were treated as resident if the travellers had established a permanent residence in Australia for at least 6 months with a routine to support it, but now they are treated as non-residents only. Nonetheless, they must pay a specific percentage of tax to the Australian government known as the backpacker tax. With earnings up to $37,000, backpackers must pay a 15% tax to the ATO.

Eligibility criteria of Backpackers

For such type of tax the backpackers must have the eligibility criteria:

  • Tourists from a partner country;
  • Working under Australian holiday Maker Program;
  • Devote time in picking fruit, working in cafes, or as delivery couriers;
  • Age limit: 18-35;
  • Holder of a visa subclass:
  • 417 (Working Holiday);
  •
