Tax-free thresholds

Tax-free threshold for newcomers to Australia
If you are an Australian resident for tax purposes for a full year, you pay no tax on the first $18,200 of your income. This is called the tax-free threshold.
Tax-free threshold if you are leaving Australia with the intention to reside overseas
If you are leaving Australia with the intention to reside overseas, your tax-free threshold for the year will be lower than the threshold available to most taxpayers who are Australian residents for the full year.
