Werner Posted May 24, 2006 Report Share Posted May 24, 2006 Hello All,Werner here, new to the forum and hopefully joining you all in Perth soon.I'll be asking aaa lot of questions, but some answers I got from previous posts.Let's begin:I've had an interview "via telephone" with a company in Perth. They are interested, want me to come over on a 457. Now they are talking about permanent i.e. 457 first but then converting it to ENS while I'm there. I think this will be better? Something about myself: Wife and 2 boys 3 and 9 years old. I want my wife to stay at home for at least the first year or until she gets so bored that she wants to work "not that she doesn't want to", but it would be easier for her and my boys to integrate and feel comfortable with there new surroundings.I've drawn up a budget with info from this and other forums and I think I've got it pretty close "your comments will be appreciated" GENERAL LIVING COSTSITEM AUD$Mortgage/Rent 1,800.00 Private Health Ins 416.00 Building Insurance - Content Insurance 55.00 Car 500.00 Car Insurance 60.00 Broadband 80.00 Phone 70.00 Foxtel 60.00 Western Power (electric 120.00 Alinta (Gas) 30.00 Rates (Council Tax) - Water Rates/Usage 85.00 Petrol 300.00 Mobile Phone x 2 55.00 Train x 2 350.00 RAC 12.00 Food 900.00 School fees 375.00 Monthly Total 5,268.00Now all the other stuff:Tax – on non-resident is Tax rates 2005-06 Non-residentTaxable income Tax on this income$0 – $21,600 29c for each $1$21,601 – $63,000 $6,264 plus 30c for each $1 over $21,600$63,001 – $95,000 $18,684 plus 42c for each $1 over $63,000Over $95,000 $32,124 plus 47c for each $1 over $95,000The problem I've got with this is: on the www.ato.gov.au site is the residency test. In my humble opinion I'm a resident so I will pay normal resident tax not so?Super – Employer has to pay – correctMedicare – Not entitled, have to take out Private health insurance.Suburbs and schools - Kinglsey,Greenwood, Carine, Joondalup, Duncraig – are they good areas with good schools?That's enough for now.
