Question 457 Defacto Working rights?

Hello - My fiance and I have come to Australia because he has a 2 year job contract. I am a defacto on his 457 but can't find much information on my working rights.

I run a very small production business in the UK that I am now running remotely.

Do I have to start paying Australian taxes on top of my UK taxes while I am out here just for two years? Or can I continue to run it online just paying my UK taxes? Any advise or know who I should talk too would be very helpful.

Thanks so much,

You have full work rights. You can work for anybody in Australia. You will have to ask an accountant about your tax situation.
