How Can the TaxBack Australia Program help you?

We’ve all heard a crabby grandparent utter one of these phrases probably more than once. While they seem cliché they tend to ring true. This day and age we are bombarded by offers that come with strings attached and we have become so cynical and mistrusting that we usually dismiss them without a second thought.

So when we tell you that you can participate in our Work Experience Australia program and pay the majority of the program fee later; we expect you to say “yeah right” and move on. It’s human nature. You can only be burned by a Nigerian Prince so many times before you realize that you are never going to get that million dollars he promised.

Look, we are not going to sit here and lie to you. If you want to work in Australia using our Work Experience Program there are some fees that you are going to have to pay. There is just simply no way around this. What we can tell you though is that there is a way for you take 75% of your program fee and pay it when you return from Australia. Do we have your attention? Good, let us explain and be sure to tell us if this sounds too good to be true.

TaxBack AustraliaAs a non-citizen working in Australia you will be taxed at a higher rate than the natives, the benefit of that is you will also get a pretty sweet check when it comes time to do your taxes. This is where our good friends TaxBack Australia comes into play.

AAG has teamed up with TaxBack Australia a worldwide powerhouse in the international tax game with 33 offices in 23 countries and employing a team of 875 tax professionals. If you qualify they will do some amazing things for you like paying the majority of your participation fee, submitting your taxes to get you the maximum refund possible, and assisting you with any and all tax questions throughout your program.

AAG wants to help make your dreams a reality and we want you to enjoy what you are doing. We know being stressed out about money is no way to live. This program is designed to knock down the financial barrier and get you into the role of a lifetime quicker.

Let’s break down some numbers and look at an example based on what we know. If you make the minimum salary in Australia which is $16.52/hour (keeping in mind that our participants make on average $19/hour) and work a 32-hour work week, your 6-month estimated earnings will be $12,687.36. That means you are looking at an estimated tax refund of $4,123.39. Go look at your tax returns from last year, did you see anywhere near that much money?

If you are still a bit skeptical contact one of our helpful Enrollment Specialists for more details and remember this:

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
