Engaging offshore contingent workers
With the rise of global mobility occurring in the workforce, we are seeing an increase in the volume of offshore contracting occurring.
To ensure we are meeting our legislative requirements as a University, we ask that prior to engaging an offshore contractor you complete the contractor assessment form.
This form will guide you to the correct team who will analyse any concerns that may arise from the contractor you are seeking to engage.
How can I engage an individual based off-shore to work for the University
PRIOR to making any arrangements with the individual, please contact your HR Advisor in the first instance for relevant advice regarding considerations relating to this type of engagement, and the process of how to proceed. From there you may be asked to fill out the Contractor assessment form
What other costs do I need to be aware of when engaging off-shore individual contracts?
Depending on the home-country of the individual being engaged, external expert advice may need to be sought to ensure compliance with the ATO (Australian Taxation Office). The approximate cost for obtaining this advice is $7-$10k and is carried by the Faculty/Division requesting the engagement.
What if an invoice or bank account is not in Australian Dollars (AUD)
Invoices must be in Australian Dollars (AUD). The HR system supports payments in AUD to bank accounts for individuals that are offshore.
