Re: Is this electrical quote reasonable?

How long would it take, I think electricians charge around 120 bucks an hour now.

I know they generally don't like small jobs, so depends on how busy they are. I can't see it being done for less...

Re: Personal UK Pension withdrawal

Had a couple of appointments for Financial retirement planners, not exactly enticed by what they are saying. I do know I can get my UK private pension through them at quite a low fee. It doesn't look...

Re: Officer, Berwick, Pakenham

Also, what is about Pakenham that you like? I've been there a little bit, not much, but it is...

Re: You know you are (still) in Australia when.....

Potentially true, especially for the UK. Not so sure about Aus though, Didn't life peak for Aussies in the 70's? Walk into any job, highest wage in the world, Sandman panel vans lol, that kind of...

Re: Personal UK Pension withdrawal

Hopefully your correct KP :) I'll find out on Oct 4th. If you are I'm 12K better off, less financial advisor fees. They may well advise me to take it as a Pension yet.

Re: Personal UK Pension withdrawal

I'll wait until I see what my advisors say in two weeks, but I think you'll find it's changed now to the QROPS approved funds that you can transfer too. That's because the HM government wants the...

Re: You know you are (still) in Australia when.....

Very true, I was dead against the Casino at the time as well. I think the Casino has turned out to be Kennet's best legacy.
