Australian Immigration And Taxation Seminar

FAAA-Seminar-2015-12-03v2

Have you ever considered migrating to Australia?

Are you an Australian University Alumnus who has dreamed of migrating to Australia to pursue your career and start a new life for both you and your family? Under the Australian Independent Skilled Migration Subclass visa 189, graduates from engineering, IT, accounting and many other disciplines may qualify to apply under this category. The occupation list is even broader if you can find a sponsoring employer in Australia.

You may also qualify for migration as a Business Owner or Investor.

Furthermore, if you are an Australian Citizen or Permanent Resident residing in Hong Kong or receive income from Australia, you should understand the latest Australian taxation laws which may apply to you. This is also important if you are planning to migrate or return to live in Australia.

In order to provide you with detailed information on the above, FAAA has the honour to invite Mr Wilson Chan to give us an insight into the latest development of Australian Immigration and Taxation Laws. Wilson has been actively practising in the immigration profession in Australia for more than 20 years and specializes in complex cases including appeals and reviews. He is also a regular CPD presenter for fellow migration agents.
