Working for certain international organisations

Income from working for certain international organisations may be exempt from tax in Australia.

Last updated 25 April 2023

If you work for an international organisation that is covered by the International Organisations (Privileges and Immunities) Act 1963 (IOPI Act), your income may be exempt from tax in Australia if:

  • regulations specify that the organisation is an international organisation for the purposes of the IOPI Act
  • your engagement with the international organisation is connected in a way that enables the income you receive to be exempt from income tax.

These conditions are provided in the regulations applicable to the international organisation.
