I am getting a WHV for a trip this year and have a wee question. I know i should get a tax number or whatever but have read on here there may be other things i might need. The only work i would be looking for would be unskilled bar/office work or that kind of thing. Do i need any other documentation or is the WHV OK for this?
No you won't need anything other than a WHV and ure Tax File Number for unskilled work. It usually takes a couple of weeks for your TFN to come through tho.
If you dont get a Tax file number you will get charged about 47% tax!
But you can only get a Tax file number once in Australia despite what some companies may say (they just want your money) and once your there its FREE, dont get ripped off
You will also need to provide an address to the ATO so they can post you your TFN.
