    Hi Michael. Do you have a Qld based solicitor who can give you an authoritative comment on this issue? Best regards.

    Talk to a specialist currency firm such as Moneycorp in an effort to optimise the AUDs you receive for your GBPs. Best regards.

    As a rule I don't recommend reliance on unaccountable Government persons, as good as they may be on the telephone. Best regards.

    Rental income from UK

    As a UK citizen you should be ticking box 16, not box 15. See the notes to supplement SA109: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/self-assessment-residence-remittance-basis-etc-sa109 Best regards.

  8. Hi ramot. Yes, the Instrument allows for 125 visas under subclass 143 to be granted to subclass 405 and 410 visa holders in the period up to 30 June 2019. We have lodged almost a dozen such applications for clients, almost all of whom are 410 visa holders. It will be great if most of them secure permanent residency in the next 5 months! Best regards.
  9. https://www.legislation.gov.au/Details/F2019L00065 Cap on parent visas for 2018/19. Based on 2017/18 I doubt we'll see visa numbers approaching the cap. The total numbers are as per the equivalent instrument that pertained for 2016/17: https://www.legislation.gov.au/Details/F2018L00683 Reference to 125 visas at 6(2) is for the subclass 410 and 405 visa holders who are applying for permanent residency. Best regards.

    There is lots of construction work in the Wyndham and Armstrong creek areas, plus other smaller subdivisions around Geelong and the Bellarine Peninsula. Best regards.

    Tax deductions available for 489 resident

    There are no deductions of the type you are mentioning - sorry. The only upside is that as a temporary visa holder your overseas income is generally not taxable in Australia - though it is reportable on your Australian tax return as target foreign income. Best regards.
