    Costs of living initially

    Hi all, Moving back to the UK (Midlands), what is the recommended amount of money to take back? (2 adults, 1 child) I've seen figures from $7500-$25,000 being thrown around. We will have free accommodation whilst back, staying with family. How and what are the prerequisites for acquiring a tax number? Do we have to have a residential address? Is this also the same for creating bank accounts? My partner and I have now had consistent work since leaving school (5 years), As it stands I should be back in the country 2 weeks before starting work and my partner will be actively applying closer to the date we move. Do real estate agents accept past work history and bank statements as a show of solid income? also if we are employed in the UK prior to applying for a rental property is there a certain amount of time they like you to have been working before they'll accept your application? Hope that is clear enough and not to muddled, apologies if so, any help would be great thanks :)

    Setting up a bank account

    Hi All I'm a UK and Australian passport holder. I've booked a ticket to go back to the UK permanently in April. Initially I'll be staying with my sister. I understand it's important to arrange a UK bank account as soon as possible because I'll be trying to get work. I've been trying to work out what's required to set up a bank account and how to go about meeting those requirements. I'm confused about these things because all the Googling i've done pulls up information tailored to Aussies who aren't going on a UK passport but on a visa for a (working) holiday. How do I get a bank account? Are there things I need to put in place before I leave? Hoping you can help. Cheers Daniel

    Advice on WHV/Banking/Medicare etc

    Hi, I am new to this forum and need lots of advice!! I am applying for my WHV (subclass 417) and at the moment I am a student radiographer up until June 2015 - I am hoping to come in September for a year / two years.. it asks me on the application what my occupation is? - What do I put? That I am a student radiographer until June then I am unemployed until I come to Oz??? I am looking for farm work, I want to apply for this BEFORE I come to oz as I don't want the messing around when I am there - my plans are to fly from UK to Sydney and spend a week or two relaxing and such .. I am wanting farm work also in order to earn money and eventually to be able to apply for my 2nd year visa .. Where should I start? How soon should I apply for work? ETC. Does anyone have any websites that I can do a welcome week in Sydney - Similar to OzIntro but I want to compare a few.. I am wanting to open up a bank account before I come so I can start transferring money into it from the UK - how easy is it to do? What are the different banks, will I be able to pick up a bank card asap when I arrive in Oz? (I don't want any that offer me a minimum of so many dollars to be able to open it.. How do I apply for Medicare? As I am from the UK- does this entitle me for free health care.. Would this mean I don't need to get travel insurance that covers me for health care? Do I need to get it still to protect my belongings etc as I will be bringing my iPad/Go Pro... Sorry for the long long post but I really need some advice on it all - many many thanks in advance and safe travels Alix

    Moving To Canberra in July

    Hi All, We are a couple from Sri Lanka & we secured a class 176 VISA last year under ACT nomination. We are planning to move to Canberra by July this year & we are very excited. We need some assistance from you all getting some information regarding 2 things. First regarding temporary accommodation, any recommended places/locations & the price range to look for. Secondly, regarding the job market in the financial & banking sector since both of us are qualified management accountants with banking experience. Any recommended job agencies & most probable job hunting strategies? We already got loads of information from the internet about settling in Canberra but hands on experience from anyone who has recently migrated would be very much appreciated. Have a great day….. Cheers…….

    MoneyCorp

    Hi wanting to transfer money from my uk bank acct to my Nab acct, I've heard if your part of this forum you can transfer money for free. When it asks 'where did you hear about us' do you just put the website in there or is there a code you need to put in?
  6. Hi all - We have already set up a NAB account (thanks POMSINOZ) - our bank in NZ charges through the nose to transfer funds to an overseas account - through some internet searching and finding many favorable reviews I came across OrbitRemit - our first transfer they didn't charge anything, and after that it works out as $5 NZD (about $4 AU). Hope it helps

    Banking a uk cheque

    I have been living in Melbourne for past 18 months and am just on holiday back in good ol Blighty for a few weeks. Ive just found out that I have just recieved a nice tax rebate!! Its been sent as a cheque from HM Customs and revenue but only snag is I no longer have a uk bank account. Will I be able to bank it into my Oz Westpac account when I get back??
  14. Hi all, I did all the right things, set up my account with Common wealth Bank from the UK...the only issue was, I set up a joint account for myself and my wife. A week before I came out, I transferred over circa 10k (can't find the pound sign on a Aussie keyboard). I then got to Sydney last week and absolutely love it...only problem is, I can't access my funds. I did everything right, went to the bank with my passport and other ID, the only problem is, because it's a joint account, my wife has also have to be identified :arghh: I thought that I could get my ATM and credit card however, if it's a joint account, you both have to be ID'd by the bank. My wife will be out in two weeks time as I came out first whilst she waits to ship the goods. Beware if your situation is the same. I have to say that the bank manager has been excellent and has allowed me some funds. Also, CBA in London have also been excellent and been in touch with my wife to get a bank/accountant in the UK to copy her ID and email through to the local branch. I guess you learn these things as you go however, if I knew this was to be the case, I would have opened the account in my own name and then add my wife when she got here. Hope this helps someone. Regards Mike (In Sydney and it has surpassed all my expectations)
  15. Hi Im always asking a lot of questions so i thought id share something i found out regarding banking, you may already no but here goes. No sure if i can use the banks name so i wont you can pm for info. The have a premier account which costs £12 a month first 3 months half price...bonus! If you have this they will open an aus account half price for you so £50 rather than £100. My partner is coming over alone for 6+ months so we needed to be able to cheaply share money, through this account we can see all uk and aus accounts online and transfer money between for only £5 per transfer. Hope this has been some help.

    Online Banking

    Hi, As my wife and I are moving to Melbourne in the next month or two we're going to need to look into opening a bank account before moving. Can anyone suggest banks with good online facilities? I use Smile (part of Co-Op) in the UK and really like their approach, so something similar would be great. Would also be handy if it's possible to open an account from the UK. Thanks, Stu

  22. Hi, We are planning to move over to Aus in early next year. I once read somewhere - maybe on this site, but I cannot find it again some advice on organising your banking needs. From memory the advise was about collating evidence of your credit history enabling you to apply for cards, bank accounts, mortgages etc more easily in Aus. I realise I can open a bank account from the UK e.g. NAB and I plan to do this. If anyone can give me advise about the other stuff or know where the info is on the forum - please point me in the right direction!! Many thanks

    Banking with NAB

    Hi Just seen the ad on this site for banking with NAB. Has anyone had experience of using them to open an account before going to Oz? Thanks
  25. Hi All Just a reminder about the live chat today (and by live chat no you don't need to talk just type away) they have 3 of the experts coming in to the Pomsinoz chat room to advise and answer any questions you have on getting the best exchange rate, where to bank and how to set up an account and also what you can and can't ship, how long shipping takes and a rough guide to cost. I think it is a great opportunity to ask all the questions that you have regarding the move and get an instant reply. Kate
