Social Contributions

Santa Fe Group remains active in a variety of ways in support of community events and charitable organisations. We believe that in supporting charities and community events, we not only improve the communities and world we live in, we also motivate staff and create goodwill.

Santa Fe Group sees itself as a company that can provide not only financial contributions but also time, expertise, resources and experience to our communities.

The community organisations supported by Santa Fe Group include women’s groups, crisis help lines, international schools, amateur arts organisations, non-profit organisations, sports leagues, Oxfam, Marie Curie Cancer Care, and The Johns Hopkins Research Fund which focus on the treatment of breast cancer. In 2012 Santa Fe Group continued its commitment to Cancer Research; Santa Fe Asia and Santa Fe Wridgways Australia contributed to Johns Hopkins Research Fund, raising USD 94, 795. Santa Fe also organised a fun run to raise money for John Hopkins which contributed a further USD 21, 068. In Europe money was raised and logistical services provided to Marie Curie Cancer Care including a charity box scheme collecting unwanted household goods for distribution at Marie Curie’s national network of shops.

In 2013 Santa Fe, Asia and Interdean, Europe will contribute USD 5.00 to Bartram’s School for every relocation performed. The money raised will be used to expand the school’s grounds so that children can continue their education up to the seventh grade instead of the current fourth grade.

Santa Fe Wridgways will be supporting Red Kite, a charity that supports children and young people with cancer. Red Kite support services include financial assistance, emotional support and education assistance. Santa Fe Wridgways is hoping to contribute over $20,000 to Red Kite in 2013.

The Santa Fe Group is also a proud sponsor of the Foundation for Social Change, a not-for-profit organisation whose primary purpose is to improve the lives of impoverished women around the world.

Moving to Asia

Singapore, Japan, China, Malaysia and Hong Kong are increasingly becoming some of the most favoured Asian destinations for relocating individuals from Australia. Asia is gaining attention for its growing economic prowess. Boasting both high-profile emerging economies like India, and long-time powerhouses like Japan, it’s no wonder the continent is attracting expats looking to further their career. Striking regional contrasts in terms of ethnicity, culture, history, economy and environment may surprise many – but as the world’s largest and most populous continent, it’s also part of the allure.

Update on Sponsorship Obligations

The Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) has recently announced updatedamendments to sponsorship obligations.

The two obligations which cause most concern to employees and their assignees are thereturn travel costs and showing equivalent terms and conditions. Please find below anextract from the revised Policy that details how and when records of these obligations mustbe kept.

Return travel costs

Regulation 2.82(3)(a) applies to standard business sponsors, religious worker sponsors,special program sponsors or a party to a work agreement and requires that the person mustkeep the following records:

The Department considers an independent person is a person who is free from influence orauthority of the sponsor, who can establish the correctness of a record on the basis of thepresented facts.

All of the records must be kept in a reproducible format. No record needs to be kept for morethan five years.

Equivalent terms and conditions of employment

Regulation 2.82(3)(c) applies to standard business sponsors or a party to a work agreementand requires that the person must keep:

The following records must be maintained in a manner capable of being verified by anindependent person:

The Department’s position is that cash payments are generally not capable of being verifiedby an independent person. If a sponsor chooses to pay sponsored persons in cash, theonus is on the sponsor to ensure that they keep records of such payments. To avoid anydoubt, sponsors are strongly encouraged to use salary payment methods such as ElectronicFunds Transfers.

On 24 November 2012, Australia introduced a significant investor visa category.

This category is being introduced as a new stream within the existing business innovation and investment (provisional) visa category subclass 188 which was introduced on 1 July 2012 and offers applicants a clear pathway to permanent residence. Apart from satisfying the usual health and character requirements, applicants applying under this category will be required to invest AUD 5,000,000.00 of their own capital into complying investments in Australia for a minimum of four years.

There are a number of benefits for applicants under this new visa category including:

In this regard, complying investments include:

Applicants may hold investments in each of the above investment options in any proportion and may also change between the complying investments provided they meet specified reinvestment requirements.
