    foreign bank transfers

    So DH is over there and has signed up with bank west, or is it west bank? Not sure, anyway, he's been told he can't make international transfers online, but must go to the actual bank and make a physical transfer which is highly inconvenient and so he's been going to western union to send me money, but that works out expensive. My question is, is there any bank over there where you can set up to pay an international bank account online? It seems bizarre that you couldn't, even in the middle east we could do that from our bank account. Any advice? Thanks
  5. Good evening folks, How easy is it to transfer money back to the UK on a monthly basis, from Aus bank account to Uk bank account and any idea of the costs involved ?? Thanks in advance Keith

    Pension transfers

    I currently have 3 small pension schemes set up by previous employers which are sitting idle, ie, I don't pay into them. My new employer offers a pension scheme and I have been advised to 'cash in' my current pensions schemes in the UK and pay the money into the Australian one. Sounds brilliant, but can I do that? Anyone experienced this already? The funds combined are about £27k, which is peanuts really that would give me a pension of less then a grand a year!!

    Sydney: Int to Dom transfers

    Hi Guys The removal men have been - we are now jobless and homeless - traveling a little before we go! Question relates to Sydney Airport Terminals. I was looking at the tickets and we have to switch between the International and Domestic Terminals at Sydney to get our connecting flight. When I was checking the web site it looked as if I might have to book with Qantas to get on their transfer bus between the two terminals? Alternatively I see there are a number of other options to get between the terminals. Any suggestions on the best way to do this - or n email address to book the transfer with Qantas?? Thanks all - won't be on as much for a while as we are operating through a bad mobile connection now. Vicky
  8. Hi guys, Just looking at which bank to go with here in AUS and as i will be using MoneyCorp i was wondering what charges (if any) people have encountered when transferring money in and out of the counry (to/from the UK) with the AUS banks.... ...I have ben thinking about going with Commenwealth Bank but not really sure.... It states on their website they charge $22 for international money transfers but i'm unsure if this would be charged if going through MoneyCorp Cheers Roflie
  9. Moving to Australia is a big decision. And no doubt you will want to start your new life with as much money as possible. One of the main factors affecting the amount of money you actually start out with is how you choose to exchange your funds into Aussie dollars. That’s where Moneycorp can help. Currency markets are constantly fluctuating, but their experts can monitor them for you, helping you trade at the right time, in the right way – when rates are in your favour. As a result, you’ll get more dollars for your pounds. Timing is key It’s important to plan ahead to give yourself an opportunity to take advantage of any favourable exchange rate movements. Leaving your currency transfers to the last minute can cost you more than you might think. If you were transferring £50,000 into Australian dollars on the dates below, you would have received the following: 17 March 2011 A$82,235 12 May 2011 A$77,185 That’s a difference of A$5,050 (or £3,310) in just over two months!

  15. Hi We are moving back to the UK, we want to leave our money here in oz until the time is right to change it. Does anyone know which (if any) oz bank accounts allow you to transfer money (via a forex Company) from overseas. We have used Bankwest before but you have to go into a branch to transfer large amounts and this won't be possible if we are in the UK. Just wondering if anyone else has come across this problem and how they have got around it!! Many thanks

    pension transfers

    My husband has a small uk pension besides his main pension with his current employer. We have been looking into transferring them over once we are settled in Oz. A few months ago, there was an advert for help in transferring pensions in the Australia & New Zealand magazine and it said that you can transfer pensions into a SIPPS account which you can then 'borrow' upto half of whatever is in the account. I now cant find this info, think the magazine has been thrown away, just wondered if anyone has done this themselves and if it works out ok??? :unsure:

    Monthly transfers??

    I run a small internet-based business in the UK and get paid in a single-payment each month. I am currently applying for a CPV 143 and intend to continue running the business from Oz. There are no practical difficulties to this as to all intents and purposes I could well 'be' in the UK. However, I wonder what the best srtategy for getting paid would be? CAN I maintain a UK bank account when residing in another country? I am thinking a straightforward monthly transfer would balance out fluctuations in the exchange rate but how could that be organised. I guess I am partially answering my own question. It does all depend on if I can administer an accound from the UK. Can this be done, does anybody know?? FB

    Tax on transfers?

    Hi folks, In another thread, I saw somebody musing about the possibility of tax on the transfer of funds from the UK to Oz and it set the alarm bells ringing for me. I had always assumed that transferring money from the UK to Australia as part of a permanent move would be tax-free (i.e. that the Australian authorities would not demand tax on it). Is that the case? If not, that's a deal-breaker for me. There's no way I'm paying another round of tax on my hard-earned savings that have already been taxed to the hilt! Thanks in advance, Steve.

    Visa transfers

    Hi there, This is my first forum thread so please be gentle . I'm a Brit living in Aussie currently on a 457 Temporary Visitor visa (4 yrs). My company is British and my sponsorship is officially from the UK based company even though there is an Australian sub-entity. I have heard that under recent changes to immigration law that came into force circa September 2009, it is now not that difficult to move from one sponsored 457 visa to another with another company. As in you don't have to re-apply, simply transfer it across. In addition, a friend told be that under these changes it is easier to transfer across from 457 to Permanent Residency. Is that right? I ask this as my partner is a kiwi and thus I wouldn't mind moving there for a while in the future if required. Having Aussie PR would mean that I would be able to live and work in NZ without the hassle of getting new visa's. Again, is that presumption correct, or are there varying levels of PR meaning I wouldn't be able live and work in NZ freely. I'm just looking for the best option and the best way forward really. Any advice would be greatly received. Kind regards.
  24. Hi folks, Just thought I would share with you, that today I saw a poster up in Tescos, advertising international money transfers, including Australia, for a flat fee of £3.00. Didn't read the small print, but I guess you could find out more information on their website. Hope its of use to someone. Mandisdfam

    GBP/AUD - The Week Ahead

    Currency Online – Moving Money Made Easy Hi there, The respite for the GBP didn’t last long. After having a go at regaining some respectability against the USD, some fairly average industrial production numbers out early last week put paid to that, and the tone was set for the rest of the week. Another blow for the pound was the Reserve Bank of Australia’s decision to increase their official lending rate to 3.25%. This had investors clambering to buy Aussie dollars at the expense of all the major currencies including the UK pound. As you can see below, the GBP/AUD cross got hammered. The unfortunate thing for those looking to repatriate pounds back into Aussie, is the trend looks like continuing. Compared to the same time last year, the UK pound has slipped 30% against the AUD. Anyway, enough of that. As for the week ahead, a heap of data due out for the markets to get their teeth into. Most of the ‘meaty’ data is due out from the northern hemisphere. If the data comes out on the positive side, expect the Australian dollar to continue its trek north. The UK pound is in desperate news of some positive economic data otherwise its slippery slide will continue. A combination of positive global data and less than impressive UK economic date will see the pound slip further against the Aussie dollar. GBP/AUD High’s & Low’s (Bid) of last week; High: 1.7600 Low: 1.7250 GBP/AUD Expected Range for the Week; High: 1.7500 Low: 1.7050 Click here to view GBP/AUD charts Talk to your currency provider today about forward contracts to protect your currency risk.
