Employers capitalise upon delays to the Skilling Australians Fund Levy Senate debate

The Skilling Australians Fund (SAF) Bill, originally set for debate in the Senate on 20th March 2018, did not make it onto the Senate business list in the last quarter.

Debate of this Bill is expected to continue but not until the Senate sits again on 21st May 2018 .

This presents a great opportunity for employers to lodge applications for a work visa for an overseas employee now and avoid paying the proposed SAF levy.

Proposed levy payments will range from $1,200 to $5,000 depending on the type of visa applied for and the annual turnover of the Sponsor business.
