887 Visa - 1 Year Work Proof - Working from home

Hi All,

Please guide me if my current experience and following proofs would suffice the 1 year work requirement for 887 visa?

Currently being on 489 visa, I am working from home i.e. from regional area of Australia for an overseas employer that doesn't exist in Australia. What I have done to prove my work is following:

1. Registered myself with ABN in Australia as to provide services to clients remotely
2. My salary comes in my Australian bank account
3. I have made the invoices of the same amount mentioning my ABN of exactly the same amount that gets into my account (as salary from my employer).
4. I can show bank statement showing same salary credits
5. Since registered with ABN but my annual income is less than 75,000 AUD hence unable to register for GST and cant obtain BAS (Business Activity Statement). Therefore paying taxes as sole trader on my ABN income i.e. Tax proof on my ABN income.
6. My overseas employer signs the monthly time sheet which clearly shows how many hours a day throughout the month I have worked / provided support to clients hence I can show that I have worked at least 35 hours a week by submitting these signed time-sheets including overtime in some weeks.

So in a nutshell, I can provide following documents:

- ABN
- Tax proof
- Invoices or salary slips from employer
- Monthly Time-sheets
- Bank Statements
- Contract with employer which clearly shows that I am working from SA and I am an independent contractor
- Reference letter from employer mentioning I am working remotely from SA

Is it that the above should suffice the requirement? Or is their anything else I need to do? Will my above work experience count towards my 887 visa application?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Sorry I can't help with the question but I wanted to say that your statement for number 5 is incorrect. You can register for GST if your GST turnover is less than $75,000 per year if you want to.

Registering for GST is optional if your business or enterprise doesn’t fit into one of these categories.

You can register for GST if your GST turnover is less than $75,000. When you are registered for GST you then need to lodge a BAS regardless of what the GST turnover is.

When your GST turnover is less than $75,000 (with the exception of taxi drivers and ride share drivers as they need to be registered for GST regardless of their income) it is your choice if you want to register for GST or not at this stage.

Alright. Thanks for your help.

I wish someone could have a bit knowledge if I can actually able to claim my 1year experience based on my scenario.
