  1. Hi there, I have a bunch of shares in the UK which I may sell next year. I'm emigrating to Australia next month. What capital gains tax would I have to pay in Australia? Thanks for any help!

    The UK Pound V Australian Dollar

    I'm really sorry for the yes voting Scots, but one thing's for sure, there was relief from me when I woke up this morning.
  3. You mentioned if the sum is over a certain amount, does anyone know what this amount is?

    Going it alone: Migrating my Cat without a Pet Transport Company

    Thanks for the response. I thought if I was taking the same flight my pet would fly as baggage for free, or do I have to pay a livestock freight fee or something?
  5. Hi All, Over the past few months I've been preparing my cat for migration to Sydney from London, following the DAFF guidelines religiously. Rabies injections are fine and I have my DAFF import permit, and have tentatively booked accommodation at Eastern Creek. I am poised to now book flights through Qantas so I can apply for my DEFRA export permit and confirm the accommodation, but a Qantas Freight Services Coordinator there has just dropped the following bombshell: "Qantas Freight UK/Ireland is only able to accept livestock bookings from livestock shipping companies, who are the recognised specialists in the international transportation of live animals." So I was wondering, has anyone else gone it alone with their pet transport from the UK? If so, what airline did you use? Or am I crazy and should use a pet transport company? Would they provide a discount if I'm already 3/4 of the way through the process? Thanks for any advice.
  6. Thanks all, and thanks Bob. I've been doing some research into a DNA test and as the Pom Queen has said, with current DNA sequencing techniques its impossible to tell how many generations removed an animal is to a wild breed, so there is no way I can prove it, but I guess conversely there is no way Australian Quarantine can disprove it either. So I really don't think I should lie on the form and will put down "Bengal Cross" as if they did a DNA test they would be able to tell there's at least a bit of Bengal. But yeah you can definitely see my cat is a cross as he's very small, doesn't have any wild features and doesn't even have the leopard spot colouration, but more of a stripy coat. Anyway I just hope they're going to accept him. Wish me luck.
  7. Hi All, Moving to Australia soon and need to take my cat. Problem is I've just read you need to prove a Bengal is at least 5 generations removed from the Asian Leopard cat. But what happens if you just bought it off a random person who doesn't have any Pedigree certificates? How can it be proved otherwise? Really stressing about this, I don't think I could bare not taking my cat.
