Australian & UK Tax Interaction
Moving to Australia
The largest number of our clients require us to help them with their move from UK to Australia. Our team in Australia looks after the affairs in your new home.
Our UK team advises on the closing up of your UK's affairs or prepares returns in the future.
For Aussies moving to the UK we can offer help with your Australian returns in the year you leave and whilst you are in the UK if you retain Australian income. Before you leave we can help you plan how best to protect your income from unnecessary taxation.
Whilst you are in the UK you may need to complete tax returns and accounts if you are self-employed. Watch out for firms offering spectacular tax savings which seem too good to be true - they usually are. We rely on imaginative approaches to your particular circumstances to minimise tax legally.
Not all our clients are moving permanently from one country to another. Some live for many years with a foot in both countries. This presents particular challenges in planning their personal and business taxes.
Only a handful of firms can offer expertise in this area - and most of those are very large multi-national firms with very high overheads. Our boutique service offers much better value for money for many clients by co-ordinating accountants and tax advisors in both countries who have often worked in both countries.
Our team in Sydney is headed by Chartered Accountant, Joanne Lamberth who is fully qualified as a tax advisor in both the UK and Australia. Supported by a team of accountants and tax advisers in both UK and Australia.
Qualified accountants in both the UK and Sydney specialising in the accounting issues of businesses with a presence in both UK and Australia.
A qualified solicitor in the UK provides legal advice and we work with solicitors in Australia to co-ordinate the legal affairs of our clients. It cannot be denied that this is a very challenging area as the two countries legal systems do not align as closely as many people assume. We have been involved in setting up charities across both countries as well as commercial contracts.
Our small team of financial advisors is based in the UK and has personal experience of the move both migrating out of UK into Australia and the move into the UK. We work closely with financial advisors in Australia to complement the advice in the UK so that you get the best global advice.
