    End of attention

    An employment termination payment (ETP) that you received due to termination of your employment overseas is a foreign employment termination payment (foreign ETP):

    • where you were an Australian resident for the period of your employment
    • where the payment was exempt from income tax under that country's laws, and
    • whether or not your foreign employer has an Australian business number (ABN) or has given you a PAYG payment summary - employment termination payment.

    Note: A foreign ETP is different from a foreign termination payment (FTP).
