I don't know why but that advert for some reason really makes my blood boil, how stupid is that.

I can feel myself getting wound up already.

Haha - we were slating this ad last night.

It makes my blood boil too. The bloke is a knob. What sort of stupid accent is that he's got. And he looks a bit simple. Scary thing is he looks familiar. And the little girl sitting by the side of the pool looking embarrased - poor kid. She must have been so tempted to jump in and play.

Wish he'd shove his sausage where it hurts

Sorry for hijack - just had to have a rant. Glad other people think the ad is pants too

It truly is one of the most shite ads I have seen.

Let's have a barbie by the harbour in full view of a load of boats. And then let's have a child who looks nothing like the dad sitting by a pool absorbing all the rays and probably getting skin cancer and as I said before would just love to be in the pool. All the while gormless norm is pretending he lives in the idyllic location.

Of course we then have the stereoptypical scene of immigrant not being able to barbieque previously mentioned crap sausage. Is it crap because it has been up his ****? Who knows

This ad has to be up there as worst ad along with the avocado and chicken trying to shag in the lift. And I can't even remember the company it is advertising.

PS To OP - I have sent you K for hijacking again. It was/is a good thread

"If you've moved to Australia like me (suckers) you can now transfer (lock away forever) your (hard earned) UK pension to Australia and take benefit at retirement, completely tax free (well except the two lots of tax you've already paid on it) (some shonky company) make it easy, they took of everything (including their outrageous commission), and I got a free (useless bit of paper showing how I can only afford to live til 68) transfer report.

There are still some things I'm getting used to in Oz (like the boredom, the rednecks, the lack of culture, the expense and the morons) but at least I know my UK pensions are (completely f**ked) sorted."

Cheers Sandra
Sandra,
Phone the ATO super line. The number is 13 1020 - they will give you the CORRECT advise. 'Super' rules are for ever changing and these are the people that should know the latest. I believe that if you are leaving the country permanently, you can access your 'super' - and you are not able to trf to a UK pension fund because they are 'not compliant' with Aus Super Funds. ut as I say - phone the ATO. Good Luck

Default Re: What happens to the Superannuation

is there a difference between the super your employer pays for you (ie you never actually see it as it is paid by them in your payslip) and your own super that you "top up"? we were led to believe that your private super could be taken back to UK but that which employer paid could not - ie it was a benefit paid since living in Oz so why should we get it if we werent. whereas other super we paid ourselves, more like a saving scheme. we were banking on being able to transfer that bit back. any thoughts???

Hi

I contacted the ATO and have been told that as Citizens we will not be able to access/tfr the super until retirement age.

And it will have to stay here in OZ, regardless if we move back to the UK and never step foot into OZ again.

Thank you all for your advice.
