  2. Childcare costs and government assistance

    I would add to this that if your children are not fully vaccinated by Australian standards you wont get any rebate and some child care places will not accept them. An example is that they vaccinate against chicken pox here where as in UK they dont, you just get chicken pox and get over it. They still want to vaccinate even if your child has had chicken pox. Prepare yourself for government interference and taxation beyond your wildest dreams!!

Hi my names Nick I am a solid plasterer and Cork Coatings applicator in the uk with a nvq level 2 and 3 and over 12 years experience I am considering getting my AQF 3 I have already started my 189 visa application and I am ready for skills assessment. What is work like for a solid plasterer over in Perth? What can I expect to earn. I am also considering getting my Plasterer’s assessors qualification. I don’t mind starting at the bottom and working my way up the ladder. Any advice people and offer me will be greatly appreciated.

  12. Did you guys as a pipefitter ever do the technical assessment as a metal fabricator and how did you get on? Did you pass and what was you asked,been in oz 4 and half years now and have finally given in to getting this qualification as im getting too many job knock backs. Im hoping such qualification opens more doors as it certainly is not with years of experience and current uk quals.

  14. p85 form

    Hi, we were both working full time until we arrived last January. We filled in the forms and received our tax refund in to our uk bank account as we had overpaid for the financial year. Don't know if or how this would affect your pension. Is it tax free? You would have to declare it as an income on your tax return here. Maybe fill it in to be on the safe side? Jen

  19. p85 form

    I don't recall filling any forms in, but I was working full time. Will it effect your pension payments if you don't? Might be worth just filling it in.
  20. p85 form

    Hi guys We are emigrating to Perth at the end of this month (Jan) One way ticket booked!!! I have informed HMRC here in the U.K of our intended move and they informed me I have to fill in a P85 form. Is this necessary?? I have not worked now for about 7-8 years, I am nearly 65, I already receive my state pension of about £500 a month. I worked part time for many years since I had my daughter and so have not paid tax for many years. I have no intention of working when we get to Oz. So my question is, will I need to fill in the P85 form?? I keep reading conflicting advise on this. Or maybe it's me just not understanding all the advise!!! Would be grateful for any advise!! (that I understand!!!) Sue

  22. Parent migration options

    Technically (although people do it), coming on a tourist visa with the intention of not going home again could be frowned upon could be frowned upon, but important to remember that the bridging visa, generally only gives you the same rights as your previous visa (unless they specifically apply for work rights). Will your parents have enough funds without being able to get any assistance/work? I don't know when granted work rights, if it's easy for people to find work on this type of visa. The problem also with the non contributory visa and the lengthy processing time, is that by the time that it's ready for granting, potentially, people could have developed serious medical conditions which will not pass the medicals. it might be worth running it by a registered migration agent www.newlifedownunder.com.au is a regular contributor to the site and you can use the PM system to contact.
  23. Parent migration options

    There are only two real options. The none contributory visa and the expensive contributory. However, the none contributory has a time frame of 30 years, while the contributory has a time frame of two years. In theory, yes they could lodge either on shore and go on a bridging visa. However, there are issues with being on a bridging visa. First, they would not be entitled to full medicare - hence why the none contributory is generally considered a bad idea as they having very limited healthcare for older people is not a good idea. There are other issues as well such as they would never qualify for any state assistance and there UK pensions are frozen at that point.
