  1. Hi hope you can advise me on this question. I have a HGV C+1 uk Licence and hold a WA car licence. My OZ HGV has expired as I have been working in the UK for a number of years. Am I only entitled to take a re test for my WA HR licence which I will have to hold for a year and then move to the next licence category and then finally in year 3 take my MC licence. Does my UK HGV not hold any significance when I re apply for a WA licence. I hope this all makes sense and thanks for your time. Hope to hear from you, Mark

    private health insurance on a 457

    Be aware your 457 stipulates you DO NEED to have private healthcare for as long as you are on a 457 and no expceptions. Your healthcare is tax deductable so everything you pay you will get back anyway. If you are unsure telephone DIAC or go to Wellington Street immigration centre and ask it isnt worth risking you losing your 457 for.

    Hi Jon I see you are from Warrington, me to a long time ago now. When are you due to arrive? I need a site manager now for a client of ours.
  14. You will need to register the property with the local authorities that it is being rented out and for your new tenants council tax. I would inform your mortgage company that you will be renting it out. We did with ours and it made no difference they just said enjoy yourself. I would advise that you get a tax exemption from the HMRC saying that you will not be liable for tax from your home in the UK when you emigrate. This helped us a lot when we sent our P85 in to hte HMRC and had to complete a self assessment. They wrote to us and said that because we had registered for non tax penalties on our rental we could claim back our interest payments on the mortgage. For once I think the HMRC have a heart.

    Fitter & Turner salaries (mining vs non-mining sector)

    You would need to find out if this role is a contract role or permanent. If it is contract you will only get paid for the hours worked so if it was FIFO and he worked 8/6 for the 6 days off he would not be paid so if you were calculating the position over a month he would be paid an average of 240 hours for the month.
