From Sunday 12 August the Skilling Australians Fund (SAF) levy has been introduced. This is known as the nomination training contribution charge (NTCC). This applies to nominations by employers under the temporary and permanent employer sponsored migration programs, including the subclass 186 ENS and subclass 482 TSS nominations.
The NTCC applies on the following basis:
$1,200 per year for each temporary overseas worker, and a one-off levy of $3,000 for each permanent overseas worker for businesses with an annual turnover of less than $10 million
$1,800 per year for each temporary worker and a one-off payment of $5,000 for each permanent worker for businesses with an annual turnover equal to or greater than $10 million
