  1. Looking for guidance on bringing across a UK contribution pension scheme. But have some questions. Quick current status summary. We have been in Australia for 4 years first on a 457 and got granted our PR Sept 2016 (so have missed out on getting our Citizenship in September this year). We are in our mid forties. Assuming we do eventually get Citizenship and can afford to retire here my questions are: Is there tax payable if we bring across our UK pensions and put them into an Australian super fund? Ive seen some information around needing to leave the money in the fund for 5-10 years. Are we therefore best to look to bring it across now? Whats the earliest Australian super funds can be accessed come retirement? Is there limits to time spent abroad if you're drawing from your superfund in Australia. For example when retired up to 6 months is spent travelling a year. Whats the implications if the pension funds are left in the U.K. And then we draw down on them once retirement comes? if anyone has experience of retiring here it would be great to here from you. Many thanks

    Hi - Has anyone got a good Tax Agent they would recommend ? Thanks Louise
  3. Hi all, so I read on a immigration advice website that they recommend you to buy a property as soon as you move to Oz (even before if possible) instead of renting. They say that even if this house is not a permanent one, it is a good investiment as after one year of you having bought a property you receive a sort of tax deduction, and you can use this property as an income and rent it out when you decide to buy something more permanent. Is this acurate? What is this tax deduction and how does this works? Many thanks Mrs W :-)
