      Just remember to declare rental income to ATO. As of last year all foreign earned income will be sent directly to Australia from your bank. At the same time you are get deductions on tax as well.

      Many seem to overlook this but those days are closing in without sanction. Doesn't mean a person will necessary pay anything of course if in negative, but should be declared none the less.

      I would certainly go where the work is. It may well feel 'cosy' to rock up to a city where people are known, but unless they are in a position to influence employment prospects I would err on the side of caution.

      Just a footnote. My neighbour bar three had a large removal van parked outside their house yesterday. They've been there nine years, Aussies to the core, and was shocked to learn they are moving east. She has been unable to get full time employment in close on a year. He can work anywhere in the country being in the army. Claim too hard here in Perth nowadays, besides her qualifications have shown 'serious' interest in Melbourne apparently.

      WA is in bad shape, everything on the down. There's still a lot of oil, mining & construction qualified & skilled labour stuck out there either jobless or doing any kind of work they can. Oil price in the doldrums for the foreseeable future, and mining industry has been decimated. As another poster said, lots of folk who moved in have now left. Unfortunately there is a large percentage of that workforce came out as a result of those large scale skilled migration campaigns they ran in UK and across Eastern Europe in the noughties. This group of migrants invested heavily in Perth property and buy to let property too. The values are starting to fall, so if you can hang on and rent for a couple of years, you should be able to buy at much lower prices when the market corrects itself. Its still in the denial stage right now.

      I felt the sting of the mining downturn back in 2012 which forced us to return to the UK so I know those problems to well! Just a quick question to flag of convenience how would my bank account in England automatically send money to my Oz one? If I did rent my property out I would have every intention of keeping everything above board but I cannot see how they would ever know I even had a property in the UK? Same would apply if I sold my house while in Oz in regards to paying capital gains tax?

      There is no automatic scooping of money from accounts, but there are international tax agreements between ATO, HMRC, IRS to track down unreported overseas income (i.e. they're sharing data)..

      That makes more sense. We are going to sell our house here anyhow I reckon as I believe the extra money will help us with the initial move. I guess having a change of visa from last time I would have to apply for a new TFN etc. Not to sure how much information they keep as it's 4 years since last being there?

      I would imagine that much like your National Insurance number your existing TFN will be re-used for life.
