By oliviaaaaHey, my friend and I are both thinking of moving to the bay next year even though parents aren't happy so the won't help us find the information on the bay. We would like to know is it worth it for a year fresh out of school? Can we study there? Is it expensive? Will we find work? Are the bills manageable on a teen wage? Is there financial support there? Is it recommended for two best friends who want out of home?
By Itrafcan someone advise us with the problems we are experiencing with an elderly neighbour.
he is showing invasion of our privacy, noise, persistent visits to us which are unwanted.
especially when my wife is alone there.
we have contacted the agency and they have contacted the owner. but the man continues on the same path
By sadsmile23Hi all
This is a question for all you tax and financial boffins out there!!
Im sure these questions have been asked before, but thought I'd ask them all together so i can try and understand the pros and cons of renting:
1. I understand that if we left our UK property and rented it out, we would have tax to pay - however, I believe you can offset certain costs against the rental income, such as mortgage, house insurance, agent costs etc. Is this correct?
2. I have been told we would need to fill in form NRL01 for the Inland Revenue (non-resident landlord) and declare our income on this. Is it just the income from UK rental property we would declare?
3. Assuming the money we would earn in Oz would not need to be declared on UK tax forms, as we would already be taxed on this in Oz?
4. Similarly, the money we would earn (actually nothing really, doesnt even cover our mortgage payments!!) in the UK would not need to be declared in Oz, coz we are paying UK taxman?
Are there any other implications, or pros or cons that anyone can think of, that I havent, that you can give advice on too please?
Many thanks, brain-boxes!!! :notworthy:
By SARAH1974Me, my hubbie and our 2.5 year old are moving on a 190 visa from Manchester to Brisbane in September. We are hoping to sell / bin / charity shop the majority of our stuff but still have a few items of furniture, pictures, clothes etc that we would like to take. I think half a container would be more than large enough to fit in everything. My question is does anyone know roughly how much this would cost and also do any firms offer space in a container rather than having to have the whole thing or half?. Also we are thinking of just paying 6 months rent up front once we have found a place - does anyone have any experience of this? Is it the norm if you have no Australian credit history, previous address etc? Any advice would be great!
