LeeGoingToOz posted UK / Australia Payroll & Tax on the United Kingdom forum:
Hi all, I am negotiating a temporary move from the UK to Australia on a 457 visa. My company initially said they would pay me in GBP. I asked for this to protect me from the currency exchange risk and transfer fees. They then told me they had learnt this was not possible due to legal reasons with the Australian government. When pushed they said that it was because I would get taxed on my whole income in Australia as I would be seen as tax resident. Firstly that's not a legal reason! Secondly they seem to be missing the Double Tax Relief Agreement between Australia and Britain. Which as far as I understand would mean I wouldn't get taxed in both places, perhaps I wouldn't get full relief but near enough. They now want to convert my salary at the exchange rate of 1.86 which is an average from the previous year. The current rate is around 1.97 and an economic analyst friend of mine says they are forecasting using 2 AUD : 1 GBP for the next two years. I feel like I am getting ripped off. I'd love to hear from anyone who understands the legal/tax implications or has been through this. I will get a financial advisor next week too! Thanks, Lee

ahzross posted Sporty family moving to Ny from the Uk on the United Kingdom forum:
Hi Hope you can help advise us. We're a looking to move to New York from the UK. We have 3 very sporty children that need clubs outside of school, including golf. Our children are 13,9 and 10 years old but it will be 2/3 years before we head out. Good schools are very important to us too, just want to give our children the best start in life. Ideally the suburbs outside of New York, to live, will suit us, but still with a vibrant community feel but plenty of green space outside. Is this feasible ? I would be very grateful of any advise offered as not sure which area to concentrate on. Kindest Regards Alex

MAV2015 posted Relocation to the UK: Stockton-on-Tees on the United Kingdom forum:
Hello you all, I am publishing this post because I will be relocated to Stockton-on-Tees within the next month. I am travelling with my wife and my -at the time- two months old son. We are so excited about the idea and looking forward to move to the UK. But we still need to decide where are we going to live. I have visited Stockton before and everyone there has discouraged me of living there. We will follow my colleagues' advice. We would like to know closeby cities/towns roughly matching the following featurings: - Market town where we can get fresh fruit/vegetables on a regular basis. - No more than 20 minutes driving to Stockton-on-Tees downtown (city centre). Public transportation also desired. Most likely we will not own a car till next year. I know there is a lot of traffic on the North-South direction but not that much in the East-West. Could you confirm this? Which road/highway is the best? Which one is the worst? - Quite good for services such us schooling, health and so on. Our son is very young but in some months he will go to nursery school. Safety and security are also very important to us. - Not totally residential. We could not live in a place such us Ingleby Barwick. - Also we would like to know which places should be avoided. I have seen several chav's circles really scaring in Stockton/Middlesbrough. I have already checked Yarm but people in the office always talk about its expensiveness. Is it really that expensive? Looking forward to hear from you. Thank you very much for your invaluable help.

Nargis initially posted:
Hi everyone! I am from Tajikistan (Central Asia).I am intending to visit UK in June, 2015 for the purpose of studying for my Master Degree, which takes 2 years. I would like to invite my family to UK to live with me during this period. I have heard that in London kindergartens for the children above 3 are cost free. Is it right information? Could you please answer this question asap? Thank you! Nargis
familytolondon replied most recently with:
Hello Nargis, All 3 to 4 year olds in England are entitled to free nursery education for 15 hours a week for 38 weeks of the year. If you have younger children or need more childcare hours, you need to pay for it. The full-time education at school starts at the age of 5. For more information, check and Kind regards, Family to London
