  1. Hi all, I'm flying out to Brisbane in 6 weeks and trying to nail down my finances. Could anyone in the know pass their eye over these figures and confirm if I'm close? $130000 - Total Package minus $40000 - LAFHA (estimated at 15k for food and 25k rent) Leaves $90000 minus $8100 - Super Leaves $81900 minus $8586 salary sacrifice for maintained lease Leaves $73332 as taxable salary 4650 tax up to 37000 and 30% over that comes to $15549.6 in tax Leaves salary after tax of $57782.40 plus 40k LAFHA gives take home salary of $97782.40 or $8148.53 a month. I hope that's right
  2. Hi all I have a dilemma with my residency qualification for a citizenship application, as I'm cutting it extremely fine. I've been told on (what I believe is) good authority that time counted as residency in Australia is the number of NIGHTS spent here. However, this approach doesn't tally with the immigration website's residency calculator, which seems to allow both a departure AND and an arrival date in your residency. For instance, if I arrive in Australia following an overseas trip at lunchtime on 10 Jan and leave again at lunchtime on 15 Jan, I'm resident during that period for only 5 nights (i.e. all nights excl the 15th). The online calculator will count 6 nights. I had to laugh when both the online calculator AND an assistant at the citizenship desk in Brisbane had disclaimers in everything they advise…. even to the point where the assistant freely admitted that the official department's own in-house residency calculation tool "wasn't as reliable as the online one"! Are these people serious?? Does anybody have access to a clear definition please, before I have to trudge in again to the citizenship office? Thanks Andy

    calculating visa points !!

    Hi, I'm looking to apply for skilled visa, and I know I need 120 points , but can anyone help me as to how many I may accumulate ? I'm 44, painter and decorator
  4. Can anyone answer me a question - probably a really stupid one, but nevertheless........!!! I'm trying to work out our visa costs (can't decide whether to use an agent or not), and calculating our budget. There are 5 of us, me, OH and 3 kids aged 11,5 and 17 mths. I've looked on immigration website to calculate cost of skilled visa, says $2060, ie £920. Now, is that just for OH, or does that include everyone else wanting to be included on his application?? Migration agent has quoted us £1300 but not sure whether I really need their help as friend of mine who recently went has left copies of all her paper work with me to "copy" so is it worth paying them that much money? advice appreciated, thanks

    Calculating a mortgage

    You know how, typically, in Britain, mortgage companies will lend up 3 1/2 times a joint income over 25 years, does anyone know if such formulas are used in Australia and, if so, what are they please?
