    DASP super payment query

    Hi all I've been back living in the UK since August 2014, my WHV expired September 2014. I returned to Australia for a holiday in November 2016 on an e-visitor visa which is still active on my passport until October 2017. I'm trying to apply for a Departing Australia Superannuation Payment and satisfy all the criteria and have all the relevant details but have received an email from ATO stating that my application cannot progress as I still have an active visa for Australia. The only guidance I can find online so far relates to cancelling temporary resident visas, no mention of tourist ones. Can anyone offer any ideas on what to do next? I'm keen to get this resolved before the tax rate changes in July if at all possible. Thanks in advance Laura

    nsw or perth?

    I'm biased, love the WA summer. It's not crazy hot and there are plenty of outdoor areas that have shaded family areas, BBQs, play areas, parks etc. You usually see Aussie families at the beach with umbrellas or sun tent type things so it's definitely sensible to keep out of the sun, but not necessarily out of the outside!

    Getting Oz tax back when I leave

    I would agree with Alan, if you're planning to return during the same tax year it would just complicate things to try to claim a rebate part way through the year, you may end up owing it back come July 2015. If you wait you'll only have to pay the tax agent once too.

    Sending stuff back to the UK

    i used Australia Post too for 16kg by sea. The rather rude post office lady thought I was crazy asked why I wasn't just paying excess baggage and told me I couldn't insure it! Hope it makes it!

    Reclaiming Super

    Hi guys A strange man told me that if you reclaim your super when you leave Australia you can never apply for another super account ever again...is this true?! I'm leaving shortly after 2 years on a WHV but hope to return in the not too distant future to work/live. If I take out my super when I leave will i be causing the future me a problem? thanks
