This legislation has now been passed and affects Aussies working abroad from between 90 days and 2 years (broadly - as I understand it): Press Release - Better Targeting the Income Tax Exemption for Australians Working Overseas [12/05/2009]

The press release says:

"Currently, Australians working overseas for over 90 consecutive days are eligible for a general exemption which means they do not pay any Australian income tax on their foreign employment income.

Under the new measures announced today, the Government will amend the general exemption to [be] only available for income earned [under a few situations like charitable workers and government employees]

To avoid Australians paying double-taxation, a tax offset will be available for any foreign tax paid on their foreign employment income."



Is anyone here in this boat (ie. in the UK between 90 days and 2 years)? What does it mean for you? Are you set to do dual tax returns (where you declare your UK income on your Aussies tax return too)? Any tips for other Aussies in this boat?
