Re: University Options for A PGCE(Postgraduate certificate of education)

Re: HiFi/Home theatre/electronics bod needed

If you were in Sydney I'd send my husband over. Other than that I know that Dick Smith do have a service that does that kind of thing, couldn't possibly comment on their ability to do it though!!!

Re: Do I need to declare UK income I earned before moving here?

Definitely don't need to declare it. We did and then had to lodge an amendment to claim it back. Was nice to get the rebate eventually, but would have been nicer to have had it from the beginning.

Re: family of 4 moving to Sydney, where do we start looking?

I love Berowra / Berowra Heights. It's definitely got a village feel, you always bump into people you know at the shops. Schools are great and it's nice and green with lots of bush walks around. My...

Re: Why have they taken tax off my husband

You can use the e-tax, it won't be able to auto fill your details for the first year or submit electronically, but you can print it out at the end and post it off.

Re: Why have they taken tax off my husband

We arrived on the 30th October, so got the whole of October's allowance thanks to arriving two days before November! Great stuff. All automatically calculated.
