Lexis Noosa’s Working Stars

Here in Noosa we have many amazing students who find a way to balance studying English, working and enjoying the beautiful beaches. Mireia is one of these students and she has been generous enough to share her experience with us. 

Mireia

Mireia has been in Noosa since December 2016 and she works at the Boathouse, a popular riverside restaurant on the shores of Noosa River. She has been working there as a dish-washer since January and she likes it because she has the opportunity to meet locals and because they sometimes give her food.

She works about 20 hours a week and feels that the job has helped to improve her English because she has to speak English in the kitchen with the other staff. If you’re looking for a job in Noosa she recommends writing a really good description of your skills. She also believes that local employers are looking for hardworking and flexible employees.

She sent out many resumes and after a month of looking got the job through a friend who was working there. She feels that working as a dishwasher was much more difficult than what she expected beforehand.

Job Workshop In Action

FullSizeRenderToday we only had one student sign up for the Job workshop but fortunately seven happy job seekers came in to prepare their English resumes so they can enter the job market here in Noosa. Jace Park who has studied Hotel Management back in Korea has completed his resume (which looks and sounds fabulous) and is now ready to start handing it out to as many companies around Noosa as possible – we hope he finds the best job possible!

Jace Resume

IMG_3265Two students applied for their Tax File Numbers and the rest started the process of getting their information together.

Claudio was also spotted at The Cooking Company working hard. Many students here are such inspirations, they study hard in the mornings and then rush off to work in the afternoons of evenings and they still get their homework done.

.

Working and Studying in Australia

It is the time of year when students have to think about lodging their tax returns.

Whether you are working for an employer or for yourself with an ABN, you will need to lodge a tax return after June 30. Here is some helpful information for you.

Bruna 2

If you’re enrolled to study in Australia in a course that lasts for six months or more, you’re generally regarded as an Australian resident for tax purposes. This means:

  • You pay tax on your earnings at the same rate as other residents
  • You’re entitled to the benefits of the Australian tax system, such as:
    • the tax-free threshold ($18,200)
    • tax offsets (such as clothes bought for your work)

The Australian financial year runs from 1 July to 30 June the following year. If you entered Australia during the financial year with the intention of staying permanently, your tax-free threshold will be adjusted. Your tax-free threshold will be lower than the full year’s threshold available to most resident taxpayers. Your adjusted tax-free threshold will have two components:

  • The first is a flat amount of $13,464
  • The second is an additional $4,736, apportioned for the number of months you have been in Australia during the income year, including the month you arrived

Juan Jose became an Australian resident for tax purposes on 17 April this year. This means he has been in Australia for three months in the income year. Juan will not have to pay tax on the first $14,648 of his taxable income for the income year. For any taxable income over $14,648, he will start to pay tax at the rate of 19%.  This only happens once – for each subsequent year Juan is studying he will be entitled to the full tax-free threshold.

There is a lot of helpful information on the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) Website.

Working in Australia: https://www.ato.gov.au/individuals/international-tax-for-individuals/coming-to-australia/studying-in-australia/
