  1. Hi, I am planning to move my UK final Salary Scheme Pension over to Australia - I just have a couple of questions. 1. I understand that there is a $540K limit for 'bring forward' non-concessional contributions, any monies above this will be taxed at 46.5% - am I correct ? 2. Any transfer must be into a QROPS scheme ? 3. Any monies in the new scheme cannot be accessed for 5-10 years without a UK tax liability ? 4. Can I start a SMSF with my new Australian Super fund - I would like to build property ? 5. Will the HMRC come after me for this ? Any help greatly appreciated. Cheers
  2. Totally get the qualification on any basis, sport, science culture or any other reason including those who qualify because they are refugees. Fast tracking citizenship because the aussie cricket team is rubbish right now ??? no different from the zola budd thing in the uk they didnt have a decent female runner (at the time) !!! What about being fair to those who have worked towards this in australia for years - totally demotivating for those who have dedicated themselves when some guy turns up and takes a place away. :-)
  3. Hmmm, seems i should have concentrated on sport at school because this is a quick way to citizenship. Maybe the four years studying at university and the fifteen years post graduate experience were a waste of time. On top of that the expense of getting a 189 visa and the eighteen months agony and wait. Oh and the four years after arrival before i can apply for citizenship. Rant over. Wonder if this guy has managed to pass the citizenship test as well, can he even spell australia ?? Seems i got it all wrong after all :-) ho-hum.

    Guess the turnaround time is luck of the draw. We have been referred since early march, seems it might be a while yet. Anyone spoken got Global Health / MOC to get an idea of which month they are 'currently' processing Barnsey

    Windy??

    Must be the haggis :-)
  15. Thanks for the reply coastie. Might have to fight this a little more. EA stated that i had (via the CDR route) displayed all of the competencies of a PE, however couldnt award PE because i have a BSC and not a BENG. Dont think it will make a difference professionally but i didnt work for over 15 years, excluding uni time to be an Eng Tech (no offence to other Eng Tech's). Weird that the CEng didnt help either.
