I am in the building trade and hoping to move over to Brisbane in September, should I try to obtain a blue card and ABN before I go, so I can pick up work quickly? Or is it only possible to do once I'm there? If so, how long does it take to get the relevant documentation together in order to start work?
I'm sub-contracting here and want to do the same over there (enjoy the freedom and flexibility), it seems that most companies prefer workers on the books (wages), is sub-contract work available out there?
Anything else I need to get work?
How long do I need to be working before I can get a mortgage???
Loads of questions I know, but I'd really appreciate some feedback.
