    Seeing a Dr in Aus - any help please!

    Thanks for your replies, this has been a great help to me! Albag.
  2. Hey there My husband and I moved to Australia in December and have permanent residency visa's. Can anyone please tell me how seeing a Dr will work, do we need to join Medicare etc.? Im guessing we'll do whatever the Aussies do but just wanted to confirm. Many thanks for your help. Albag.

    Tax Help

    Hi there My husband has just been offered a job in NSW and they have asked him to start asap. We are now planning to move out there at the beginning of December which obviously means its all systems go! My question is a quick one - we have a house in the UK which we are renting out which we will continue to do for at least 1 or two years. Can anyone tell me how we stand regarding capital gains and income tax when we move? We are getting confused by conflicting information! Many thanks!
  6. Hello My husband and I will be booking our one way tickets to make our big move to Oz by the end of this year. When travelling there previously my husband (and me for that matter!) has found it pretty uncomfortable (he is 6 foot 5) and we alwasy said when we we book the one way tickets we'll go in style :biggrin: Having looked at prices Im not sure we can justify the cost of business class, so just wondered if anyone had any hints or tips, or any experience of premium economy? Thank you.

    Hi there My husband is a diesel fitter by trade, and we have our permanent visa's in place and are hoping to make the big move before Christmas. I have read about the ARTC online and I wonder if you can tell me if it is worth him applying for this? Will it significantly help him when looking for a job? Of course we want to get as much in place as possible to give him full advantages! His skills/experience/qualifications have all been successfully assessed in order for the visa to be granted, so we are just not sure if we need to apply for an ARTC also. Many thanks
  8. Hi all My husband and I have our visa's already in place - class bq resident p, subclass 138 Fitter (he is the primary visa holder and I am his spouse). We are hoping to make the move to Australia this year and are getting my husbands CV ready to send out to the Australian job market. His City and Guilds Apprenticeship has been assessed and successful with the TRA (to enable the visa to be granted). My question is this - the get his CV 'understandable' for the Australian job market, is there somewhere we can approach to tell us what the equivalent qualifications in Australia are compared to his British quals? We can totally appreciate when we send his CV out, the qualifications stated on there (C&G and others since) will not mean anything to any potential employers in Australia, and this in turn may mean his CV is overlooked. We have found out about the ARTC but am not sure if this is appropriate or not, and also not even sure if this will cover any of the more recent qualifications he has gained, or just the apprenticeship. Has anyone got any ideas/experience? We would really appreciate any help. Thank you Albag x
