  1. Selling House in Oz from UK & CG tax

    Thanks LKC ! Yes that’s the form my husband has sent over. I don’t think the conveyancer really knows re Australia/UK tax. I’ve contacted an expat tax firm so hoping they may be able to advise. Thanks so much !
  2. Selling House in Oz from UK & CG tax

    Hello, I am hoping someone can offer some advise please. I have moved back to the UK, currently staying with parents and do not own a property here. My house in Oz will go up for sale end April. I will need to complete my part of the sale here, ( my husband is still in Melbourne but we have separated). Can anyone advise steps I take here ? i know I need to set up an account for the sale proceeds with a solicitor whilst me and husband agree final division of money from sale. I will use proceeds of the sale to hopefully buy a property here. Do I also need to engage an accountant to assist with Capital Gains Tax ? I have PR so husband thinks I sign some form he has sent me entitled “Foreign Residents Capital Gains “ that the conveyancer has provided him. I’m not convinced about this as I’m residing here in UK now. Can anyone recommend a company that can advise me properly please it’s all soooooo confusing especially when going through the mire of seperation ..

  4. Thanks and some TOR advice needed

    Hello, I’ve been reading with interests everyone’s posts for moving back to the UK. Firstly thanks to all those who share their advice and wisdom for both moving to Oz & moving back to the UK, what a wealth of knowledge and support you all are ! Sadly my marriage has broken down ( my husband is Australian), and me and my child left quite quickly .... so priority has been getting school sorted etc .. the situation was such we couldn’t stay whilst house stuff was sorted, shipped, sold etc .. I’ve had a look at the TOR chat on here and wonder can the shippers pack our stuff without the reference number ? My husband has booked shippers to pack our stuff this Friday .. but says they need the TOR reference number .. but I see that it can take several weeks for a TOR number to be issued .. but also see some have packed and shipped and got TOR number whilst in transit .. guess it depends on the shipping company .... its good to be back in the UK despite the circumstances! Any advice on if we can leverage with the shipping company to pack without TOR would be great, I still need to get a laptop & printer so I can complete the form !
