Assignment Criteria

This assignment consists of two (2) parts. Part A consists of a problem  solving scenario (1,000 words) and Part B is a research assignment  (3,000 words). You must complete both Part A and Part B. Pay careful  attention to the marking criteria at the end of each Part.  

Part A  

Julie is 22 years old and was born in Vancouver, Canada. On  2 September 2015, she arrived in Brisbane on a 12-month working  holiday visa. Prior to arriving in Brisbane Julie had always lived with her  parents in Canada.  

Julie had worked in Vancouver prior to leaving for Australia and had been  saving for her travel. She did not own any significant assets in Canada,  only personal possessions such as clothes and a few electronic items. She  left most of this with her parents while she was in Australia.  

Julie stayed in a hostel in Brisbane for 2 weeks after arriving, visiting the  Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast and other tourist attractions. She then  travelled to Bundaberg in Queensland to work as a fruit picker on a farm  for three months. She lived with other backpackers in a hostel.  

With her savings she then travelled around North Queensland, the  Northern Territory and Western Australia for three months staying in  hostels.  

When her savings started to run out Julie found work in a Perth coffee  shop. Julie shared rented accommodation with friends she had met while  backpacking. She was in Perth for three months.  

On 16 June 2016 Julie decided to return to Vancouver and moved back  into her parents' house. She wanted apply for a working holiday in the  United Kingdom so started working and saving for her next adventure.  After six months she started travelling again.  


Discuss with reference to legislation, case law and/or rulings whether Julie  would be considered a resident of Australia for tax purposes for the  income year ended 30 June 2016. You do not need to consider the  temporary residency rules.
