I understand that UK state pensions are able to benefit from an 8% per annum allowance against Australian tax under the Undeducted Purchase Price (UPP) of foreign pensions arrangement.

In addition to our UK state pensions, my husband and I each have UK occupational pensions. These were funded by ourselves and our employers. Our own contributions to these pensions were tax deductible at the time of contribution. Am I correct in thinking that these could not benefit from the UPP process and produce some allowance against Australian tax?

Would be very interested to hear from anyone who has experience of this.

Yes, you can claim an allowance for your private pensions under the UPP arrangements.  We have done this for our private pensions.  You will need to make a separate claim to the ATO for each pension, the form is available on the ATO website.  They will then tell you how much you can claim.   However, when we made the claim we had to get evidence from our employer or pension provider regarding the amount you yourself actually paid into the scheme.  I found this almost impossible for one of my pensions so gave up as it was only small, but my OH was able to get the information and now claims an allowance for both his private  pensions in addition to the state pension.

It's ridiculous how the processing time for a CPV application (offshore) can take up to 3 years when you have to pay the Australian Government a huge sum of money. Two years of processing is understandable, but extending it to 3 years (and you have to pay at least AUD50,000). Geez.

If a dependent applicant during the time of lodgement is under 18 and when the department asks for the Aos and the dependent turns 18 yrs of age will he have to pay full Aos as well?

you guys do realise that by posting your mobile numbers on an open public internet forum you are likely to fall prey to every scammer, hoaxer and idiot out there? Wouldn't private message be a better way to go?

Thank you for this, it was really helpful. We have now downloaded the form and are busy putting together and collecting the info required. We still have some time to go before we anticipate getting our visa but, as I am sure you found, this is not a 5 minute job and it would be nice to have it all in place before we finally set off for Oz.

Seriously Hacked Off

I sent PVC a PDF showing my AOS Acceptance Letter 11 days ago. The indication was that once this letter was received I would be invited to pay the 2nd VAC. To date I have heard absolutely nothing. Bearing in mind their 28 day deadline, you would think there would be a common decency to acknowledge receipt if nothing else. Bearing in mind Centrelink have already enjoyed my $14,000 for the past two months you would think there should now be some expedited approach to getting the visa finalised. What on this earth is the problem? Why can some get a response within 2 days and others not? I would love to complain but I don’t have to imagine what would happen to my file in the queue!

I’m sorry but that’s totally outrageous. I know some on here would say, “If you don’t like it then go back home,” but that’s not valid. This country is offering the visa so it should be processed with some diligence. Of course, IMMI have done nothing wrong, they are clear on the website that people wouldn’t sell up and move until their visa has been granted but there should be some calculation in this. Like others on this site, I was told the processing time of 18 months. OK I will go along with some slippage but how can folks being at the end of the line be delayed by the same amount of time as others who are just starting the process? I have now reached 35 months how can it take so long to produce a one sided piece of paper? Having taken the 14k it is fair to assume that the actual consideration of granting the visa has been conducted and the final two payments is simply a tick the box exercise. I do have the patience of a Saint but I can’t abide simple poor efficiency - rant over and back to the naughty step!!!

I had to provide a document from my pension fund stating the exact amount of personal contributions paid in. 

Here's a link to the application form:

Did your pension fund just provide the documentation for you upon your request . Thanks
