Hi, I'm an Israeli, own an EU passport and so is my wife I'm planning on relocation to the UK (London, most likely). We have a 1 year old daughter and one more to come. I can get a ~35K-45K contract and wanted to know whether it's possible do live with my income only (until my wife get birth) and then, if considering a minimum to median income from her side - is it possible to do live well considering costs of kindergarten, childcare and such. Thanks, Gal.

Hello Gal, The average gross salary in London is about £40K per year. Your estimated earnings should be enough for you and your family. Of course, "living well" means different things to different people. Housing is expensive and varies between neighbourhoods, so choose the area to live carefully. Good luck with your plans!

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
