Hello, (I hope this is the right sub-forum to use)
I need some advice because this has been worrying me this it came up with my partner and I recently.
I am a university student and rent shared accommodation. I manage okay financially, though it's very week to week, I haven't gone hungry for a while now thank goodness.
I have looked for part time work but due to illness during my high school years I have no experience in common part-time employment options. No one's really interested in training a 22 year old retail assistant.
My partner has offered to help support me financially while I study. But I don't want either of us to be in trouble for it. I've tried researching and as far as I can tell there isn't a gift tax in Australia, but I'm not sure if that's true or whether I'm misunderstanding things.
Any help or advice would be so wonderfully appreciated.
