  1. https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/visas/getting-a-visa/visa-processing-times/family-visa-processing-priorities/parent-visas-queue-release-dates The queue date is the reference point. Best regards.
  2. 2 to 4 months is what we're seeing for UK based partner visa applicants where the application is close to being decision ready. The key to a quick outcome is having the application decision ready. Best regards.

    Queue date for 143 Parent Visa

    The queue date will be assigned once the Parent Visa Centre is happy you have a valid application and have submitted all documentation to validate the family relationship. And then you'll be advised by letter attached to an email. Best regards.

    Tax if on 870 or 600 visa

    https://www.ato.gov.au/Individuals/Income-and-deductions/In-detail/Income/Foreign-income-exemption-for-temporary-residents/ ATO commentary on the exemption for tax residents of Australia who are temporary visa holders ... Best regards.

    Tax if on 870 or 600 visa

    The subclass 870 visa is a temporary residency visa, so I would expect (non-Aus source) pension income from the RoI to not be taxable in Australia and to remain taxable in the RoI. It certainly works that way for those on 870 visas with UK source pension income. The tax situation changes though once permanent residency has been secured. Best regards.

    Financial advisor

    Some of us are tax qualified and work closely with financial planners - so clients can get the holistic advice they often require to secure optimal outcomes. Best regards.
  7. No, that's not necessarily right. Professional advice should be sought on strategy here. IMHO. Best regards.
  8. I'll answer question 1: if you withdraw the 103 when lodging the 143 application the lodgment date of the 103 visa application will be used when deciding when the 143 application should be allocated for processing. So if the 103 visa apploication was lodged in or prior to June 2016 the 143 application should proceed quickly to requests for health and character. Best regards.

    Capital Gains Tax for Australians selling UK property

    UK pensions are solely taxable in Australia if received when you are tax resident in Australia, as per Article 17 of the UK-Australia Tax Treaty. So make sure no tax has been/is being withheld from the UK pensions from the time you became tax resident in Australia again. A NT (No Tax) PAYE Coding should be in issue in respect of the 2 x UK pensions. Best regards.

    Tax

    I'm coming to this thread after a couple of weeks, but note that the OP has a subclass 491 visa. This is a temporary residency visa, so there's unlikely to be a CGT issue in Australia - the temporary resident tax exemptions will be available until permanent residency in due course. Best regards.

    https://www.gov.uk/guidance/capital-gains-tax-for-non-residents-uk-residential-property If you were not resident in the UK when the property was sold there's a need to report the disposal to HMRC, whether or not there is tax to pay. If you need formal assistance please feel able to contact me at bdhtax.com Best regards.

    Moving to Torquay

    Will do! On the ferry tomorrow morning from Queenscliff to Sorrento, then a cruisey 4km swim race down to Portsea on the outgoing tide (the Pier to Perignon) followed by lunch at the Portsea Hotel. Onwards, Susie!

    Moving to Torquay

    PS. If you need the warmth jump on a plane to Qld! A new airline (Bonza) is starting up and will fly from Avalon (again, 20 minutes from here in the car) to Maroochydore on the Sunny Coast very soon. What's not to like?!
