    Mate as per Accountant some companies pays super every end of the financial year and most of them pay for every quarter, who ever pays end of the year that goes into the next financial year, my boss paid first at end of the year for that year it was less, next 2 years it was more for CO. even My MA said it’s 1000% winning chance if I got for appeal , but I won’t have the business where I’m working. so can’t appeal, it’s fate what we can do.

    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    You don't need to extend it for 2 years......just put a vote forward for Theresa's deal or no deal......its quite simple. You don't know what 51.9% voted for apart from to "Brexit" so its quite arrogant of you to start deciding how this should all move forward.....and before you start on about this "cliff edge" or "car crash" scenario.....no one knows how this is going to pan out...... a managed no deal may not be a lot worse than Theresa's deal.......all the threats of various catastrophes such as the loss 2/3 of manufacturing jobs reliant on the EU. https://fullfact.org/europe/manufacturing-jobs-and-eu/ These claims of the Banking sector being decimated if we Brexit.....I think I read of 70k or 80k jobs allegedly might go.....in fact to date I think there has been less than 5000.....most operations are staying where they are and just relocating a few hundred staff members. https://www.ft.com/content/931b1b1a-df49-11e7-a8a4-0a1e63a52f9c https://uk.reuters.com/article/us-britain-eu-banks/britain-expects-5000-financial-services-jobs-to-leave-by-brexit-day-idUKKCN1MK11S

    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    well don't go by what you believe.....go by fact....its out there and quite easy to find.....the UK's net contribution in 2017 was a gnats cock under 9 billion £......in 2013 and 2015 the net contribution was 11 billion £......in 2020 if we stayed in as we were it would also be an 11 billion £ net contribution (approx). When you look at how much we pay the EU it is quite staggering.....over 100 billion £ since 2000......apart from ze gerMans we contribute more than the other 26 nations put together net...... https://fullfact.org/europe/our-eu-membership-fee-55-million/ I have been looking at this thread on and off for a long time and have seen numerous challenges to produce info to back up why we should leave cus all the Leave voters are so thick and stupid......so I put my opinion forward recently backed up with facts......and now you are complaining that I "band that much about I lose track".....you couldn't make this up.....its there pal.....its not bullsh#t......I think your problem is that you have been brainwashed with all the negativity......now there's a thought.....maybe you lot are not so clever after all.

    Christmas

    Everybody here does xmas in July. It’s quite a big deal
  13. We have had the phone call just waiting for the acceptance letter.
  14. Are they sending rejections even without phone call?
  15. So sorry to see your timeline taking 8 months already from when you were first asked for more documents, something must be done about AOS as it really is taking far too long. Fingers crossed you don’t have to wait much longer.

    My wife is a subsequent entrant on my 457, and she got full working rights.
  17. Honestly, it is a little bit low. Do-able, but it won't give you much wiggle room. Do you have any idea whether you will be able to work, and what your salary is likely to be? We moved back from Sydney just over a year ago, but it was insanely expensive in the last few years we were there. It would definitely be possible short-term, but long time it probably wouldn't leave much room for saving for holidays and things like that (of course bearing in mind that you're likely to want to take holidays to the UK and also explore Australia a bit).
  18. Centrelink are issuing AOS rejection letters in error. As they are so far behind their system is not recognising when documents have been provided by the applicant and is automatically sending a rejection letter.

    Australia’s Best Fish and Chip Award

    Here in Brisbane we have a ‘Chumley Warner’s’ British fish and chip shop. It’s awesome, not sure what potatoes they use, if they’re frozen or whatever but it’s always packed full of brits and it’s well worth the (albeit slightly more expensive) price.

    Christmas

    We live in Brisbane and I miss the UK terribly at Christmas time. It isn’t the same in the heat BUT we still decorate, have plenty of lights up and make our spaces cosy and Christmassy. Some houses round our area are amazing for lights and decorations and that always puts us in a festive mood. Especially coming home to warm mince pies with baileys cream. Oh and on Netflix there’s a program- well more a recording really of a fireplace- literally 60 minutes of burning wood. There’s 2- the second one is ‘birch wood edition’ This will be our 8th Christmas in Brisbane and we always do a roast -like someone else commented my husband would divorce me if I cooked him BBQd seafood on Christmas Day. I usually do the prep the day before so there’s not a great deal to do on Christms day, and we have the aircon on really low. After lunch we we spend the rest of the day relaxing and pigging out on all the usual festive treats, watch the kids play with their toys and sometimes have an evening walk. A lovely cheese board is my treat on Christmas Day evening. It can be magical but I find you have to work harder at it than in the UK. Christmas is what you make of it regardless of where you live.

    I didn't say it was fake, but it's not something you should rely on. And how do you feel about getting May's deal passed?

    Christmas wishes

    What a beautiful robin- haven't seen one of those for years. When I was very young one used to follow us round the garden. In London! It was quite a rural back garden considering- wood pigeons, bluetits etc. The bluetits used to make a hole in the milk bottle tops outside our front door.

    Guys, I want to ask a question, I'm applying subsequent entrance sc482 visa for my wife. I'm on sc457 visa. Do my wife have full working rights or she can only work for my sponsored business? Please answer. Thanks
  27. It is requested for my 5 months old daughter, and BUPA is not doing any medicals for under 6 months olds. May be i contact with case officer if she can advise what to do.
