Taxation in Australia is quite complex, we need to know more to be able to give you a correct answer. To help you understand your situation, we like to point out some potential issues with tax on visitors:
- Since your foreign income may also be taxed in its source country, you are potentially subject to double taxation. To overcome this, Australia has a system of credits and exemptions and has signed tax treaties with more than 40 countries, including India.
- If you’re not an Australian resident for tax purposes, you are only taxed on your Australian-sourced income, so you generally don’t need to declare income you receive from outside Australia in your Australian tax return.
It is always a good idea to get a professional tax advice if you want to plan your tax ahead.
