If you have just been allocated a CO, and are waiting to be asked to arrange for the AoS and the Bond to be lodged maybe in late July or more likely August, my questions might interest you too.
My queries are as follows:
1. Exactly which documents have to be produced to Centrelink to prove the minimum income of the Assurer(s)? I need the official name and/or number of the document, please
2. Which tax-years do they need this thing for if the visa application was submitted in 2005 and the AoS will be given in August 2006?
3. If two people (husband & wife) are going to give a joint Assurance, and they have two children both well under 18, plus they are going to Assure one adult only, by my calculations the minimum income they need to prove is $43,750.00 for whichever two tax-years it is. Am I right or have I stuffed this up completely? (The latter would not be remotely surprising, I can assure you! :oops: )
4. Does it make any difference if the joint Assurers are both self-employed? If it does, what difference does it make, please?
I am becoming totally confused about all this, since I live in the UK and I have no idea how the Australian tax-system works.
Any help would be very welcome indeed!
