  1. Okay, that's really helpful, thanks both. I've set up Transferwise borderless account, which allows payments in both GBP and AUD, which I think will be useful. I'm assuming it's best to just work as a sole trader in the UK and do a self assessment come tax time, rather than set myself up as a limited company?

    I need to find out for sure re GST.... if anyone knows more on that, let me know 🙂

  2. Hi, 

    Let me know if there's an existing thread on this subject and I'll go find it, but in the meantime...

    - I recently moved back the UK after 4 years or so in Australia. 
    - I want to continue freelancing for Australian clients and I'm not sure of the best way to do this, money-wise.
    - Can I continue invoicing in AUD with my ABN and get paid into my Australian bank account?
    - What happens at tax time (in both countries)?
    - Any tips for avoiding international transfer fees and so on?

    Lots of questions! If you can help with any of them, it would be much appreciated. Thank you!

  3. Hi All, 

    So, I haven't posted much on here, but everyone's messages of support to each other have been great to see - thank you. In case it's helpful, I wanted to let you know my visa was today. Details below. Hurray! 

    Good luck everyone 🙂

    Ours came through a week after the nomination was granted. If your status says “received” then I wouldn’t worry. (We were told the Nomination and Visa Applications are different departments.) If it changed to “Open” or “Inital assessment” then I think they will ask for more docs/ info. Ours went straight to Finalised. I’m sure someone will let me know if I’m wrong 😁

    Thanks, I wasn't sure about the statuses - and whether anything would change if they needed more documentation. That's helpful.

  5. Hi All, 

    What has people's experiences been re. the time between their nomination being approved and their visa being granted? 

    My migration agent has told me the nomination was approved on 12 December, but I've not heard anything else yet. Lots of people seem to have had both come through on the same day, so wanted to check in with you guys and see if I should concerned at all?

    Congratulations to everyone who have had their PR come through so far this year! 🙂
