I have the option of earning substantially more in Aus than in NZ. I have been contracting in NZ for the past 13 years and have been offered a job in the same industry in Melbourne as a contract worker. Any tips on starting business and what I should ask for from my employer before I move myself and my family over?
Hey, 1st off you will need to get a ABN (Australian Business Number) for tax purposes (Just like GST back home).
2. If you are in construction you have every 2nd Monday off (Called a RDO - Roster'd day off) you don't get paid.
3. If you work at a union site and it rains you don't get paid as they put down tools and go home
4. You can claim center-link (just like WINZ)
What industry are you in and i'll find out more for you.
