    Parent visa application timelines (143 & 173)

    Yes, this chart from the Department's submission identifies the nature of the backlog. The big question for the Federal Government is what are they going to do about it?

    Options for Parent holding 870

    You limit your options if you want to meet someone in person ... Zoom or an equivalent is your friend! Best regards.

    Capital Gains Tax on UK property due in Australia?

    Hi Andy. You certainly need to run the numbers to establish the tax position - in the UK as well as in Australia (probably - subject to your visa status). Best regards.

    Tax on UK lump sum pension

    The UK tax deducted under PAYE is likely to be repayable by HMRC. In Australia - as Ken says - only the growth in the fund from the time you became a tax resident is likely to be taxable, known as the Applicable Fund Earnings. I anticipate you'll come out ahead financially if you take steps to deal with the pension monies as per the above. Best regards.
  5. The age of a subclass 143 visa applicant is no consequence to the granting of such a visa. It is only the onshore parent visa applications under subclass 804 or 864 that have an age requirement. Best regards.
  6. I think you might be confusing the subclass 864 visa with the 804 visa ... Best regards.
  7. Note also that being given a queue date doesn't mean health and character requirements have been met. This is still a hurdle to be cleared in due course. So it's not correct to say that for such visa applicants it is just a matter of time. Best regards.
  8. I think you probably already know the answer to your question ... hence my observation about the issue of fairness. Best regards.
  9. Respectfully, the sooner you forget the notion of fairness in the context of the processing of visa applications the happier you will sleep at night. Best regards.

    Rental income from UK

    Hi GeeBee. In short: disclosable on your Aus tax return as target foreign income until your PR visa is granted. Included as taxable income from the day your PR visa is granted. Hope this helps!

    870 parents temporary visa

    The requirement to submit the visa application within 6 months of sponsor approval still pertains. However, subclass 870 visa applications aren't being granted at the moment, while border restrictions have their present settings. Best regards.

    Australian Tax Experts for UK Rental Income & Trusts

    It's the filing deadline season for 2020 Aus tax returns where a registered tax agent is appointed, so many tax agents will be busy at this time. Maybe make enquiry again in a couple of weeks? Best regards.

    870 parents temporary visa

    Maybe not, but A&J should be in pole position to travel to Australia when restrictions ease. Often visa strategy is about optimising your situation to take advantage of opportunities when they arise. That means spending money before there's certainty of outcome, but s/he who dares wins the prize! Best regards.
  14. Added to which BV holders are not subject to Australian tax in respect of their foreign source income - eg pensions. Best regards.
