Australia: The Skilling Australians Fund Levy

The Department of Home Affairs in Australia has announced that the Skilling Australians Fund Levy will begin on 12th August 2018. The Skilling Australians Fund will encourage the funding of apprenticeships and trainings in occupations that are in high demand and rely on skilled immigration. This means that employers wishing to hire under the Temporary Visa (subclass 482) and Permanent Residence visas (subclass 186 and 187) will have to pay the below charges:

Subclass 482

  • Companies with under $10 million turnover – $1200 per year
  • Companies with over $10 million turnover – $1800 per year

Subclass 186 and 187

  • Companies with under $10 million turnover – $3000
  • Companies with over $10 million turnover – $5000

Refunds are available for employers in the following circumstances:

  • If no decision can be made and the application is withdrawn
  • If the employer nomination is approved and the worker is denied a visa on character or health grounds
  • If the decision is made and the employee is granted a visa but does not begin work in their nominated position
