How to Claim Back Tax From Australia

Australia -Flag

Whether you’re an Australian in
London seeking tax advice or have returned to the UK after working
in Australia there are a few things you need to know when filing a
tax return.

Claiming Back Tax from Australia

When you return home after working in Australia, you need to lodge a tax return in order to claim back tax.

If it was temporary, you will need to lodge an Australian tax return online after 30 June, upon your return to your home country.
If it was permanent, you must lodge a paper return whilst you are still in Australia before your scheduled departure. As this will take longer to process, you must lodge a return well in
advance.

Can you claim your super contributions?

Contributions in your super fund account will remain in
Australia, while you are still in the country. But you can claim it
as a departing Australia superannuation payment (DASP) when you
return to your home country. The chances of you claiming it after
you leave Australia depends on whether or not you:

  • Are a holder of an eligible temporary-resident visa, but not
    visa subclasses 405 and 410.
  • Were paid super contributions by your employer, while you are
    still in the country.
  • Have left the country, and your working visa has been cancelled
    or has expired.

Tax will be deducted from your fund, before your super will be
paid to you. You also need to apply for DASP for you to get paid
through three payment options – cheque, electronic funds transfer
(EFT) to an Australian bank account, and international money
transfer (IMT) – for fund applications only. DASP is usually paid
within 28 days after you lodge a claim.

You may also claim refunds for wine equalisation tax (WET), and
goods and services tax (GST) at the airport or seaport when you
leave.
