  1. The Pom Queen

    Marijuana For Medical Purposes

    I have never taken drugs in my life and am totally against them. However you see terminally ill patients hitting the streets to score for pain relief. Personally I don't know why for cases like that the Dr's can't prescribe it.
  2. Hello guys, I wanted to pick your brains again. We got the request from our CO for our meds, police checks and form 80 last month. We have 28 days to submit which brings us up to next Thursday. Do you know if its possible to delay our meds and police checks until the end of July? If we get the visa we didn't want to validate before the end of July and go over initially on a reccie. If we do this we will send confirmation of the meds and police checks to the CO. Is this sufficient do you think or will we be penalised? Thanks
  3. 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
  4. Earlier someone asked about links to ATO pages that provide the basic information needed to conisder your tax position. Here you go: Examples of residents and non-residents for tax purposes We have outlined a number of scenarios that may help you to determine whether you are a resident or a non-resident for income tax purposes Examples of residents and non-residents General treatment of foreign pensions and annuities[/url] http://www.ato.gov.au/individuals/content.asp?doc=/content/34780.htm Tax treatment of transfers from foreign super funds Tax treatment of transfers from foreign super funds and specific to UK Pensions some addtional info: Tax treatment of transfers from foreign super funds Hope these help.

  5. Hi, Can anyone tell me what if any the Australian Statute of limitations is for tax (specifically income tax, but all taxes really). Many Thanks, OzziePom
  6. Hello all....first post and its actually on behalf of my mother in law who has recently initiated an application for a contributory parent visa. I'd be grateful for any advice please. She has engaged the services of a migration lawyer in Sydney, who have informed her that they need to investigate the implications of her step children on her application. She has 2 natural daughters - one is a permanent resident in sydney and the other - my wife - is in the UK. Her husband died three years ago and he has 3 children (grown up and in UK) from a previous marriage. Are the three step children still classed as step children now that her spouse has died. She has not remarried. if they are, then presumably this means she is ineligible for a CP visa? Thanks in advance for any information - the migration lawyer is investigating but it would be useful to get other perspectives on this. It is particularly significant as I am currently applying for a 176 visa and hopefully plan to be in Australia with my wife (her other daughter) in a couple of years time. If she cannot go, it may affect what we decide to do. Thanks and apologies for a long first post!
