What tax rate should a seasonal worker pay?
  • Workers participating in the seasonal or short-term stream of the PALM scheme (9 months) will have a 15% tax flat rate withheld on payments made to them by their employer. Due to the length of time in Australia, under the short-term visa stream, workers are considered non-residents of Australia for tax purposes and are not required to complete tax returns at the end of the financial year.
