  1. The removal men: Pickfords is on Channel 5 today (6th July 2011) at 20:00 Not sure if anyone else has posted about this but I thought this might be of interest to anyone else who like us is trying to work out which removal company to entrust with shipping all our treasured possessions over the other side of the world! Not too sure what kind of a light it's going to portray Pickfords but as we've never used a removal company (always a Luton and our own muscle power) it'll be of interest to us. :wink:

  6. Hello all I am a Producer Director working on the second series of ‘Phil Down Under’ for Channel 4. The series focuses on British families who are moving from the UK and starting a new life in Australia and features Phil Spencer from Location Location Location. We are currently looking for people to take part in the series and I wondered if there is anyone on here who might like to have a chat about the possibility of getting involed? We are searching for people from the UK who have secured or are in the process of securing a job in Australia and are now looking to purchase their first home. We are also searching for ‘success stories’ – people who may have moved out from the UK in the past few years and are now making a great success of their lives out in Australia. Any people who are interested can either reply to this thread or apply at http://www.meontv.co.uk/PhilDownUnder Best wishes Siobhan
  7. Property guru Phil Spencer from C4’s ‘Location Location Location’ is taking his property finding and negotiating skills along with a large dose of English charm, down under. He’s heading to the other side of the world to help emigrating Brits find their perfect home in Australia. In each episode, Phil will be helping one British couple navigate their way through the Australian property system. Phil will help find, survey and negotiate the deal on their dream pad. From harbour-side homes in Sydney and Beach pads in Byron Bay to Ranches in the Outback and Retreats in the Rainforest, no property search is too daunting for Phil. For the return of this exciting series we are on the hunt for people who are looking to emigrate to Australia before the end of 2010 or people who have already made the move and now need help with their property search. They must be available and able to buy in November/December 2010. If they’ve got the papers and they would like the help of a dedicated team who will assist them find the house of their dreams all they have to do is follow this link http://www.meontv.co.uk/PhilDownUnder and fill in the application form.
  8. Hi I am in the process of applying for a de facto visa and would like to know if anything shows up on the ACPO report for a couple of misbehavings in Guernsey (Channel Islands). When I spoke to my lawyer then (7 years ago), it was a petty offence but said that if I didnt want a record I should leave the island (which I did). Now I am worried this will come up on my police certificate. Could anyone advise????? Thanks:sad:

  19. I am a researcher on Channel 4's flagship overseas property show 'A Place in the Sun' presented by Amanda Lamb. We are currently in pre-production with a series of 'down under' shows and are looking for contributors to take part. We are looking to get in touch with British couples, singles or families who have decided to make a permanent move to Australia. Contributors need to have begun (or ideally completed) the visa process and have the funds in place in order to proceed with a property purchase should they find a suitable place. We are likely to be filming September - October 2008. Please get in touch if you think you might fit the bill, by calling Natalie on 0161 235 6542 or email natalieg@fftv.co.uk Thanks!
  20. When you become a resident of Australia, income such as rental income from foreign properties, dividends paid by foreign companies and distribution entitlements from foreign mutual funds / pension planswill be taxable in Australia. Australian tax rules generally require you to include that foreign income in your tax return expressed in Australian dollars. The exchange rate depends upon what happens to the income. If the income is paid back to Australia, you use the tax rate at the date of receipt. If the income is held overseas eg. in a foreign bank account, the exchange rate is the rate at the end of the year. Another issue to watch out for is that foreign countries (Uk included) may impose some tax on the income that you have earned from an investment in their country. This means that you will not receive the full amount of your investment income(you can submit a form to your bank to stop this). The Australian tax rules require you to include in you tax return the full entitlement to income before any foreign tax has been deducted. The foreign tax paid can be used as a credit against Australian tax payable on that foreign income (ie to prevent double taxation occurring). You may have expenses associated with your foreign investment income. These can be claimed as tax deductions against your foreign income. There is a limit to how much of these expenses you can claim in any year. The deduction in any one year is limited to the amount of the foreign income that you receive. If your expenses exceed your foreign income, you can not claim them in that particular year. You need to carry them forward to claim against foreign income in future years. Foreign investment fund rules There is one particular tax issue which causes concern for many immigrants coming to Australia. This is the application of the foreign investment fund (FIF) rules. These rules were introduced by the Government as a means to stop people deferring the payment of Australian tax on investments in foreign/UK companies, foreign/UK trusts (including mutual funds, pensions) and investment policies issued by UK/foreign life companies. The rules are stringent. They may require you to bring to account the increase in the market value of your UK held assets from year to year. You will be taxable on the increase in the value of the assets which means you could be paying Australian tax on unrealised foreign capital gains. YES YOU PAY TAX EVENN IF YOU HAVE NOPT CASHED IN THE INVESTMENT! Example: Managed Fund grows by GBP1,000 in the last year after fees and charges. You are earning $40,000 in OZ. You need to add the GBP1,000 at the applicable exchange rate so $2130 to your taxable income (puts you in the 31.5% Marginal tax bracket). So you pay an additonal $670.95 in tax which has to come from your earnings as you have not cashed in your UK investment! A number of exceptions do apply for shares held in listed foreign companies. However, not every listed foreign company is eligible for exemption. It is always wise to check with your Australian advisors as to whether investments you hold will be subject to the FIF rules. Please note that the FIF rules do not apply to foreign real estate investments or foreign bank accounts (you must report the income annually on these). Hope this is helpful Always seek personal advice on your situation. Liam
