    I have just arrived in Australia on a visa 457 anddue to commence a new doctor job in April. Is there any point in talking to an accountant at this stage to get advice in in terms of prospective purchases and expenditure in order to maximize tax return in the coming year? Basically a chat to familiarize with local taxation system?

      Hi Kieran,

      Thanks for your inquiry.

      Basically, it won’t hurt to ask for advice from a professional. By doing this you will be informed of the things you need and need not do. I would suggest seeking help from an accountant. This would benefit you.

      Hope this information helped.

      Cheers,
      Arnold
