So you say that you can’t work for more than 6 months for the same company, what if you are like me and plan to be self employed and earning through the Internet?

You have to have enough money to support yourself going over first – ie. 3000 euros. You also need to have a return ticket. Don’t think they care what you do once you’re over here – you could sit on a beach for a year if you want like – but you have to prove you have enough funds to get into the country before you arrive.

Unfortunately thats the nature of the mp3 – it will always add on a few miliseconds either way. What I generally do is open the midi file and edit it in the wavform few so you can see the tiny gap it creates, delete it, and save it.

Not the best way, but certainly helps a fair bit

I’m here at the moment man, from Ireland. Living in Queensland at the moment – did the working holiday. You get taxed at29% for all the income you receive in Oz but you get all of that tax back at the end of the financial year,or when you leave the country. I think you pay tax in your home country for your online earnings – as far as I know
Wait, you get all that tax back? So the AU Government only earn money from non-residents by the intrest they gain from the taxes they receive, and all that tax is returned to them? Cool. And you’re also saying that when I return to the uk, i will have 30whatever% deducted as tax from my income… Ok… Am I interpreting this right? :)

Not sure about your UK Tax – I think your online earnings are deducted in whatever country you are a resident in – which won’t be Australia.

Yea you get all of your tax back – 100% of it, and you also get back all of your “Superannuation Fund”, which is like you pension fund. I had an average job here in a college for about 6 months of my stay here, and so far I got 3k back in tax from the last financial year, and I’ll have another 4k in tax to get back once I leave the country. Not bragging, just giving you an idea of how much an average job will give you in taxback.

Basically it works like this – the financial year in Australia ends in June. You put in your tax refund application form, and you get back your tax within 14 days usually. HOWEVER , you have to have been in the country for 182 days before you can apply. So if you arrive in March (Like I did), you have to wait 182 days after your arrival date to apply for it back – I did it through taxback.com – they were useless, but I complained and got the price down to 99$ instead of 300$ :)

Once you leave the country you can also apply for your tax back instead of having to wait until the end of the next financial year. So I’m leaving here in January – I don’t have to wait until June to claim it back – I just go home to Ireland, apply through taxback.com or an accountant, and usually get it back within 2 weeks, and the superannuation fund within 6-8 weeks.

Also – with the working holiday visa for all of us in Europe, you can only work 6 months in the same company – you can’t work any longer than 6 months for the same company. Another point to remember – if you want the second year of your working holiday visa, you have to work for 3 months in a primary industry like farming, fishing, forestry, mining, fruit picking etc.

I’m typing all of this as I sit in a tent in a campsite outside Brisbane city lol…slightly weird! :)

Any other questions, just ask :)

Making what as a freelancer? Making a King and his kingdom achieve their goals all for the price of a few pieces of currency, and the risk of one’s life being spent out of the disillusioned misunderstanding of one’s own interpretation of nobility and sacrifice? Nobility and Sacrifice… Hmph. It no longer exists. It must have only been an illusion then, from the very beginning. I think they should expel those words from the dictionary. Oh well. No account for necessity when illusions are made to make profit and images for entertainment. No king. No success. And so, from the illusion of one who believed in nobility ; those who sacrificed themselves at the extent of their lives ; was born the term so widely spread across many a trade, “freelance”. I see, I understand now. As a freelancer I can uphold the term’s outcome and interpret it as a way to create illusions for others to believe in. And like its outcome, they can go for as long as those “freelancers” did, who sacrificed their lives until they died for the term they represented themselves with. No thanks. Its not worth it. Because as the term dies, so does the memory of what no longer exists, nobility and sacrifice. I mean if a WWII veteran can’t believe any longer that his devotion to nobility and sacrifice was not in vein, why should I believe that nobility exists? And especially, sacrifice. Freelancer, in much the same respects, like that WWII veteran who admitted to disbelieve that his devotion to his country was not in vein, the term has been deluded. Why should I represent myself with the term, “freelancer”, as all it has become is more accurately described as, “free-hire profiteer”?
