    Oz tax return from the uk

    Hi Can anyone tell me We lived in Oz (Adelaide) from june 2013 -December 2013, on a 489 State sponsor visa. I want to submit a Tax return for myself and my hubby but not sure what to tick for.... Australian resident for tax purposes on the E-tax form...If I tick NO then they are saying we owe them money but if I tick YES they owe us....We were paying Tax and Supper so were we classed as a resident for this time????? Much appreciated if someone can tell me what I need to tick. Thanks in advance. Tracey

    OZ tax return from the UK

    Hi, OK So Oz didn't work out for us and we are back in the UK We are trying to do our first tax return from the UK and the first hurdle we have come across is registering with the MyGov site. It asks you to provide a mobile number 10 digits long & beginning with 04 so they can send you an SMS, I am assuming this is for some sort of code? But as we are back in the UK we don't have our Australian mobile numbers anymore. Has anyone come across this before and if so how did they get round it!!!! I was going to ring them but if they are anything like the UK it will cost me a fortune lol We both need to do a tax return and our situation is pretty straight forward & thought maybe we could just do it yourself!! Or if this hurdle is going to be the start of many to come can anyone give us advice on who to use (if ya aloud to on here) (We went out to Adelaide on a 489) Any Advice We Thank You in advance..

    So many moving back to the UK!

    Hope your move back helps you decide whether you stay in the UK or go back to OZ..... I don't think either country is better or worse than the other just different in many aspects. once you've made that journey to OZ and come back you start to look at the good and the bad of both countries--I know I do! & this is what makes people Ping-Pong! (don't know how they afford it myself) sometimes one bite of the cherry is just not enough for people! Good Luck Helz980

    Never under estimate the pull back

    "It does surprise me also, how many people emigrate and yet have never visited a place in advance (as was the case with the couple above), so have no idea about the cost of living, the price of housing or even how much a litre of milk costs. If you are planning to move to the other side of the world, so far from everything and everyone you know, surely it would be a good idea to go and have a look at it first and find out whether or not you can actually afford the cost of living there?" Good comment! We came out here without doing a Recci first & I can honestly say I don't think I would have come back(for many reasons)....but what i would say is that your vision whilst on holiday is completely different to actually living in the reality of it all and the important thing may be overshadowed by this. We are a family of 5 and the cost of a Recci a posed to using that money to come out here and getting started, I do now wish I had done the Recci.......we have only been here since June and for us it has made us realise how important ageing grandparents and family are important in our children's lives, and what we had wasn't all that bad! It's a lovely post by the OP and a very realistic one for many of us. I would never say don't do it and honestly believe if you have an itch scratch it. You can do as much research as u like but nothing will prepare you for the emotional feeling you go through, throughout you journey.....
  8. Not sure how true this is,but I've known people turn their container round at the dock & sent it back to the UK and never paid duty on it! I've heard of items less than 12 months old u might, but lets face it how will they know if u use it a few times.... Maybe look it up again or ask on here as you may be staying longer than u need to......good luck

    ACECQA req.

    Hi Kitty78 I hold a Foundation Degree Arts Children and Young Persons, I emailed the ACECQA team for advice on having my qualification assessed so that I can work in a early years setting/kindergarten at the same level as what I do here in the UK when I get out to Adelaide, and they advised me that I had to contact the overseas qualification unit in the state or territory you are going to, this is the link they gave me https://www.aei.gov.au/Services-And-Resources/Services/Assessment-of-Overseas-Qualifications/Who-can-assess-my-overseas-qualifications/Pages/StateandTerritoryOverseasQualificationsUnits(OQUs)contactdetails.aspx you just select the sate that's suits you and this is where you have you qualification assessed for levelling before you can apply for Early childhood educator as ACECQA require a certificate for this assessment. if you PM me your email I will send you the email,,, I think this is what they are saying from the advice they gave me and will be happy to send you it so you can read for yourself..... Nothing is straight forward as we have found out throughout our visa journey......... I hope this helps you, I will let you know when I get I reply from Adelaide skills for all, about my levelling enquiry..... traceyandedd
