Hello, I am trying to find out some information about working for an Australian company, receiving an Australian income in to an Australian bank account, whilst living (and possibly working) overseas (Indonesia). I am leaving Australia, for up to 2 years. Will I submit a return here this coming July, from Indonesia? Do I declare my Australian income in Indonesia? Do I declare my Indonesian income in Australia? Anything else I need to be aware of? Thanks in advance for any advice. Peter.

This is a complicated scenario we have been presented with. My Father was Dual Nationality domiciled in UK but had property in Australia which he rented out and payments went into an Australian Bank Account. We have inherited this and I am a UK Citizen which is non UK resident as I have work and pay taxes in the Czech Republic. My question is the Legality of all this. I intend to open an Australian Bank account to manage rental payments. I am unsure where to declare my taxes and if it is legal for me to continue the property on in Australia living here in CZ. I also have a property in the UK which I rent out to manage the payments on a mortgage. Please help. I'm unsure where to go next but want to ensure I am maintaining this in the right way.

I am seeking advice as to how a non tax resident can best time the disposable of an investment property in Australia. I have been in the UK for 18 months and expect to reside here for approximately another 12-18mths. Would it be best to dispose of property whilst a UK resident and pay non resident tax rate of 29% or could I time my permanent return to Aust in approx April and dispose of property then when I would have minimal Aust sourced income for that tax year and therefore pay app 15% on the gain. I am taking a minimal salary here from my company therefore on lowest marginal tax rate in uk and remainder of uk income is derived by company dividens. Any tips/advice would be greatly appreciated

Tax - transition from temporary visa to Permanent residency for foreign incomes

Good morning, I have been living in Australia for some years under a Temporary visa. Therefore I did not have to declare French bank account interests and rental income from my property in France (as I have been paying taxes to the french tax office). - I have got now my Permanent residency since February 2011. - I have received monthly rents from my property in France since July 2010. As a permanent resident of Australia, I have now to declare to ATO my rental incomes from my french property. But what period should I declare to ATO? Rents I received from July 2010 to June 2011 _or_ rents I received from March 2011 to June 2011? Is there any references in any ATO booklets regarding the transition period and what the law says exactly? Same question regarding french bank account interests received in January 2011 on my french bank account while I was still a temporary resident back in January 2011. Thanks and regards, Henri Macon

The object of my using off shore entities is to hold precious metals offshore and avoid any tax increases or confiscation from the Australian government. From my research it appears that if I purchased a private annuity from a foreign company I did not own.(but could direct through a foundation. That this objective would be achieved. Is there something I am missing? Also if there is a simpler way to achieve the objective can anyone comment on that. thanks for your help.
