Sponsorship visa and the Skilling Australians Fund

There are several visa classes to provide a sponsorship for employees who wish to work in Australia. Employers will need to make financial contributions to the newly created Skilling Australians Fund for each overseas worker sponsored on a temporary or permanent employer sponsored visa.

Employers who wish to nominate an employee on a TSS visa (482 visa) will need to contribute $1,200 per year (or part of a year) if they are a small business (i.e. annual turnover of less than $10 million).  All other businesses sponsoring employees on a 482 visa will have to contribute $1,800 per year (or part of a year). 

For those employers wishing to nominate employees on a subclass 186 ENS or subclass 187 RSMS visa, the contributions will be one-off (rather than per year); $3,000 for small businesses and $5,000 for all others.

As one would expect, sponsors will be prohibited from passing on the cost of the contribution to their nominated employees.

The government estimates that the training contribution charge, payable by employers, will generate $1.2b over the forward estimates.

The Skilling Australians Fund Bill will, if it passes parliament, also allow the government to increase the nomination training contribution charge in the future within certain limits.
