820 Bridging Visa - resident or non resident for tax?

Hi there, if my partner recently applied for a 820 visa and got granted the bridging visa is he considered as a resident or non resident for tax?

I suggest you contact an accountant or the Australian Tax Office and ask for a ruling on this. I suspect that you are a resident for tax purposes.

It's really a simple definition to look up and comes down to whether you plan to live in Australia for the foreseeable future, which your partner does I presume given the visa he's applied for.

You don't need a ruling. If you don't know the ATO has a residency tool on their website to help you figure it out.

As has been said it doesn't have to do with your visa it is to do with your intention and as you have applied for an 820 one would assume you plan to live here permanently therefore you are a resident for tax purposes.
