Young people often come to Australia and do casual work to fund their travels around this great country. They are frequently referred to as backpackers, since they only have enough luggage that they can carry in their backpack. This makes going from one place to another much easier. However, when it comes to earning money in Australia, nearly everyone must pay taxes and this includes backpackers. So they have also to lodge a backpackers tax return if they want to be able to claim some or all of this tax back.
If you are a backpacker, tax will be taken out of your pay before you get it, just like it is for most Australians. But if you earn under a certain amount then you can claim this tax back. The problem is often that backpackers do not know they can claim their tax back or else they leave it all until they are leaving Australia and then believe it is too late to do anything about it.
Often backpackers who travel around for work lose the details they should keep safe such as the names and addresses of their employers and how much they got paid at each place. It is easy to forget to keep these details in a safe place when there is so much else to think about, do and see. However, most backpackers are short of funds and so would certainly appreciate getting their legal tax return.
Many accountants specialise in getting backpackers tax back for them. The best part is that this can be done even after you leave the country because it is an online procedure. Naturally enough, you have to pay for this service, but it is a quick and easy way to get back the money you paid in tax and can often be done just before you leave to make it easier. Of course, you have to have actually paid this tax before you can claim it back.
Some accountants work with you online to get all Australian tax back for you that you have paid and are entitled to get back. Because they are highly trained and good at their job they know all the ins and outs of what you can claim back and what you cannot claim. And if this can be done before you leave Australia it will save you a lot in the costs and fees of having the money transferred to the bank you designate in your own country.
