    Utility Bills Sunshine coast

    Hi this has probably been posted before but I am struggling to find the information I'm after.. Myself and my family(wife & 2 girls) will be relocating from Sydney to Sunshine coast at the end of Jan. I am trying to get an idea of utility bills, mainly gas, electric and water. We are looking to move into a 3/4 bed house in the Buderim/Mountain Creek areas. Does anyone have any information they would be able to share? Thanks

    Medicare for Kids?

    Hi I will be moving to Sydney in December. I understand that you can get Medicare card from showing your National Insurance card (from UK). How does this work for children under 16? Both my daughters are under 6 years old... Anyone know?:err: Cheers Dan

  9. Thanks the attachment is really useful. Can you send the web link where you attained this from? Question to Ian, how is the food allowance calculated for LAFHA? I have a family of 4 - 2 adults, 2 children. The company I work for are going to give me food component for 2 adults. Is the food allowance calculated at company discretion?? or on gross salary?? or am i missing something. Cheers Dan

    UK vs. Aus disposable income

    Hi Steve Very good point. I am due to do a reccie trip in September. Looking forward to getting out there and getting a taste of what its like. I have never been to OZ so can't comment on work/life balance at the moment(although I get the same feedback from other people who have already been). I am currently working as a Project Co-ordinator in the IT industry. live in Great Barr. How about yourself?
