Default Possible move to Australia

Hi Everyone,

Me and my other half are seriously considering a move to Australia! No idea where yet but we have checked and we are eligible with me being an accountant and him being a mechanic.

We will be bringing out 4 year old Rough Collie with us, I'm sure he'll love the beaches but perhaps not the heat so much lol

We still have a lot of research to do but the bottom line is that we are struggling for reasons not to go, especially after the attack in London yesterday!

Lovely to meet you all
Mel

Hi Mel,

Welcome to BE!!

You've certainly come to the right place to connect with others moving to and living in Australia and I'm sure you will pick up lots of tips here and make a few new friends along the way.

I hope you enjoy your stay with us and if you get stuck on anything on the site please give me a shout and let me know.

Thanks for the warm welcome, the only reason we can think of not to go at the moment is family.

I'm enjoying reading peoples stories

That's great. Do join in with some posts of your own, won't you. Don't be shy. The good folks in the Australia section won't bite.... well, hopefully not

Hello and a big welcome to BE.

Excellent information can be found in the BE Wiki, not forgetting the Living and Moving Abroad forum that will help you, another set of great help is the permanent threads at the TOP of each forum, they are very pertinent to that particular forum and makes sensible reading.

Moderators deal with any problems that arise such as inappropriate posts, spammers etc, you will find their names at the bottom right hand side of each forum's index in bold font.

Please contact me if I can give you any further help.

Rosemary

Hi Ali, I am MAAT and I have been told I can register with a local accounting body so your husband should be able to do the same. He will also have to learn all the tax rules over there but I'm not sure how I go about that yet, assume there will be a test! Also not clear on whether it is possible to register with the new accounting body before you have an aussie address so I need to look into it more. I will post up what I find out

Hi mrsanastasi and welcome to the forum. You're currently in the introduction section of the forum. Why don't you check out the visa section of the Australia forum on here? You'll find plenty of people already in Aus to advise you.
