  1. Exercise caution - IMHO one ought not discuss on a public forum an intention to come to Australia and apply for an onshore visa such as an 864. Best regards.
  2. There is no bridging visa with a 143 visa, whether you apply onshore or offshore. You might be thinking of the subclass 864 visa perhaps? Best regards.
  3. Why do you want to apply for a 143 visa onshore please? Best regards.
  4. Too many questions for me to answer as a freebie - sorry! Suggest you might appoint an agent to help you manage your visa applications if you have concerns and want clarity or guidance. Or maybe others can step in and help you. Best regards.
  5. I'd be interested to see the reply - feel able to send to me by private message. Best regards.
  6. Not true! What you can't do is lodge a 143 visa application with an 870 visa already granted. => Timing is key. Feel able to contact me via a private message (click on my name to the left of this post) if you would like to discuss more fully. Best regards.
  7. Not so! You could arrive the day before the travel facility expires on the 143 visa, stay for a period of time (not necessarily 2 years) and then seek a Resident Return visa if the quality of ties to Australia are sufficiently good. Best regards.
  8. https://guides.dss.gov.au/guide-social-security-law/9/4/4/10 FYI. And hasn't changes in eons ... Best regards.

    I appreciate your belief in me, but there's a limit to what I can do! Keep faith! Best regards.

    Tax on rent from U.K. home

    OK - then your UK rental income is taxable in Australia. Any tax you pay in the UK is creditable against your Australian tax liability - known as a Foreign Income Tax Offset. However, if your UK source income is less than your UK personal allowance there should be no tax to pay in the UK. Consider whether a tax depreciation report in respect of your UK property is a worthwhile expense. Feel able to ping me a private message (click on my name to the left of this post) if you'd like to have a freebie chat - we do both UK and Australian tax returns at bdh Tax (I'm a UK and Aus qualified tax accountant). Best regards.

    Hi Dave. What is your visa status in Australia? Best regards.
  12. In case of interest to any, I have prepared a tax factsheet for subclass 143 visa applicants/holders. Feel able to ping a private message to me if you would like me to send it to you. Best regards.

    And an 864 visa application is cheaper than the 870 ... plus the sponsor doesn't have to meet an income test/have an exposure to Medicare costs arising with an 864 application. Best regards.
