The process ensures that you can financially support the person you are employing on a 457 visa, you have to ensure that the job cannot be done by a Australian, and also there are a raft of regulation you have to comply with, recent changes in the law have made it essential that you get professional advice to ensure you comply with legislation, penalties apply.
