This page provides guidance on how to calculate your estimated annual earnings if required for a Registration of Interest (ROI). Your earnings are one of many factors used to select ROIs for invitation.

For subclass 190, if you are living in Victoria, are currently unemployed, or not working in skilled employment, please enter $0 for your estimated annual earnings and 0000 as your postcode.

For subclass 491, if you are onshore, you must be living and working in regional Victoria in skilled employment.

What can I include in my calculation?

Your estimated annual earnings should reflect the total compensation received as part of your employment, excluding superannuation and before income tax deductions.

In most cases you should use your base salary as your estimated annual earnings. Take care not to over-estimate your annual earnings as this may affect the outcome of your application. See the list of excluded earnings below.

You should include earnings from skilled employment.

Estimated annual earnings includes:

  • wages,
  • payments while on leave,
  • penalties for weekends, public holidays, or work outside regular hours,
  • commissions (only accepted for sales roles), and
  • amounts that are salary sacrificed (such as a novated lease for a car or a meals and entertainment arrangement).

Estimated annual earnings excludes:

  • mandatory employer superannuation contributions,
  • earnings from unskilled employment, such as: administrative roles, retail roles, machine operators, drivers, labourers, cleaners, social media advertising and non-formal employment (such as selling second hand or handmade goods, food and grocery delivery),
  • allowances (such as allowances for meals, car, uniform, travel),
  • bonuses (such as sign-on bonuses and lump sum performance bonuses for non-sales roles),
  • incentive payments (such as equity or share options),
  • overtime,
  • scholarships,
  • reimbursements,
  • non-monetary benefits,
  • government benefits or payments,
  • investment returns (both capital gains and dividend payments),
  • gifts,
  • tips or gratuities,
  • gambling winnings, and
  • other types at our discretion.

Assessment considerations

Please keep the following in mind when calculating your estimated annual earnings.

  • If you have an annual salary or base salary, please use this figure. This figure should be pre-tax and exclude mandatory employer superannuation contributions.
  • If your earnings are on a part-time basis, note that the calculator will adjust them to reflect a full-time equivalent. Please use the adjusted figure provided by the calculator in your ROI.
  • If your earnings are casual, note that the calculator will adjust to take account of casual loading. Please use the adjusted figure provided by the calculator in your ROI.
  • At the time of assessment of your nomination application, you will be required to demonstrate your estimated annual earnings using the last 4 weeks of earnings.
    • If you cannot support the figure provided in your ROI, your nomination application may be refused.
    • If we assess that your employment is not skilled, your nomination application may be refused.
  • If you are employed in more than one job, only include your estimated earnings for your highest paying job, which meets the above considerations.
  • You can only include earnings from skilled employment in Victoria, or regional Victoria for subclass 491 visa applicants.
  • Skilled employment includes any role that is at skill levels 1,2 or 3 in the relevant ANZSCO classification relevant ANZSCO classification.
    • Skilled employment does not have to be in your nominated occupation, but your earnings must be from skilled employment.
    • For example, if your nominated occupation is Mechanical Engineer (ANZSCO skill level 1), you cannot include earnings from employment if you worked as a Truck Driver (ANZSCO skill level 4), but you could include earnings if you worked as a Mechanical Engineering Technician (ANZSCO skill level 2).
