    From a tax and company point of view yes but if you go back overseas you may be subject to what we call foreign residents witholding tax which is annoying

    – from an immigration point of view not sure you will need to check with an immigration agent or check the conditions of your Visa to make sure it does not breach the visa

    Hi DC_vic,

    Welcome to Flying Solo :)

    In addition to Alan’s helpful reply, please be aware that most of our professional advisors are only able to provide general information in a forum such as this one, and you will be best placed to seek advice about your specific circumstances.

    Good luck!
