    Renting out house in uk

    Hi Alan, I would like to know more about this report please. Let's say the Taxable Income (after allowable expenses) was £12,000/year on a UK rental. The UK Personal Allowance is say £11,500. Then in theory UK Tax = £500 x 20% = £100/yr. So tax is paid. But do you ALSO need to pay tax in Oz on that UK rental?? Double Taxation kindest regards j

    I'm not sure about what I'm about to say but I think Oz income tax rates are lower than UK which makes me think you'd be charged less in Oz. Plus on another point, income tax in general, a bloke at the gym who loves Oz and wishes he was back there (the wife made him go back to UK) he was self-employed in Oz and the amount of stuff he could claim for to reduce Tax was huge and he paid very little Tax so for him yes Oz is expensive but you pay less tax and in theory get paid more compared to UK.albeit he left years ago so had not experienced the last ten years of price rises in Oz (then again he would be mortgage free and retired)

    Thanks Yup that's the website I found afew months ago and I say bris less than 7pm. And I think there was a table for most of the major Oz cities which didn't seem much different.

    Returning to Blighty after nearly 8 years in Queensland!!

    Hi ya thanks for your reply sounds like we're doing a swop lol I'm a financial controller. Live in Essex, no ties so was thinking if I move it would be cheaper living (rent a room in shared via Gumtree etc) until I'm established and look for temporary work, part time. So a career backwards step but that's the price of lifestyle choice I guess. Plus I reckon work ain't so plentiful until you get your foot in the door and not being native probably doesn't help. BUT the otherside side of the coin is in settled in a good job, secure etc so why risk it?! You tried it for 13yrs!! Dual citizenship now? Yet STILL coming home to UK? That concerns me. Though you're not the only one. Best of luck though. Hey perhaps do a job swop lol
