Employers who wish to nominate a worker for a Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) visa, an Employer Nomination Scheme (ENS) Subclass 186 visa or a Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (RSMS) Subclass 187 visa will be required to pay a levy to the Skilling Australian Fund. If introduced, the levy will be:
Small businesses – $1,200 annually per temporary worker nominated
Medium to large businesses – $1,800 annually per temporary worker nominated
Small businesses – $3,000 for each employee on a permanent employer sponsored visa
Medium to large businesses – $5,000 for each employee on a permanent employer sponsored visa
Businesses will be required to pay this levy at the time the worker is nominated. The Australian Tax Office has advised that the levy would be tax deductible. The Skilling Australian Fund will be administered by the Department of Education and Training.
