Working in AU for a US company?
Any idea about the implications of working in Australia for a company based in the US? Not a US company with an Australian office, in which case you'd be working for the local entity. Rather, one person working remotely for a foreign company.

The ATO site has info on foreign employment income, but it seems to assume that you'd be overseas when earning money from a foreign company...

You talking full time or contract?

I did a small (Well, large for me back then) contract of about $4000 and I didn't have to jump through any hoops.

Full time. I've since learnt that the laws of the place you work apply. So income tax would go to the ATO, not the IRS.
