    Keeping bank account

    Yeah have let bank know! Can we still earn interest though? The rate needs to drop to under 1.60 that would be fab!!

    Keeping bank account

    Can anyone shed some light. We moved back to Uk but have left our money in our bank account in Oz. We’re not making any interest on it. We are now classed as au residents overseas If we were to move it to another account would we have to file tax returns because of the interest. Such a pain as rate is terrible at the moment hoping it might get better later this ear!!

    2 1/2 months back

    Just wanted to let people know our story. After being in beautiful Perth for 7 years we moved back to the UK luckily with our 18 and 20 year old boys as hubby never really settled there! Here in Wiltshire there seems to be a lot of jobs on offer which is great as I’m able to be a bit picky which job I wanted even though I’m really old 50 this year!! Jobs at the moment are plentiful. Both my boys have found work and have slotted back into life here! Weather has been great, lovely and warm in February! All our belongings arrived here with no problems (thanks Grace) Living with the in-laws until we are able to get a mortgage that’s probably the only downfall not having our own space but in-laws are fantastic! Just wanted to say our experience of coming home is a good one even though we’re now poor lol! Loved Perth but glad we came back as loving the UK. and hubby is settled once again!

    Superannuation

    I don’t know anything about transferring it to a uk scheme or else I would have done that. I think you’ll f8nd it has to stay in a pot in Oz unless you can prove you need the money or if you are a permanent resident not a citizen I know you can get it!

    Superannuation

    I didn’t think I could transfer it into a bank I was under the impression it has to stay with a superannuation company until I’m at retirement age
