    Moving to Melbourne

    Hello, I am Lebanese coming to Melbourne very soon on 457 visa, so I highly appreciate your comments on the below: My salary is 1250 PW gross, how much approximately is the tax deduction? Is it possible to make a saving out of that salary, noting that I should be taking care of the transportation and accommodation? how much approximately will cost me sharing a flat and using the internet? I will be working in the CBD is it possible to find a sharing flat in that area, so I can minimize my transportation time? On my job offer the contract is for 5 years, were I am not allowed to apply to any different place, is this normal? My flight to Australia will be paid by the employer, but later it will be deducted from my salary! Thank you in advance for your replies.
  2. Hi everyone! I have recently just registered for an ABN, and my friends told me that I can claim my car on tax if I have one. I'm really 'iffy' about that and wanted some clarification. Also, I purchased my car a month before I got my ABN, wouldn't that make a difference? Thank you!
  3. Hi All, my job offer has now come in (on a 457 visa) and just doing the final household calculations to see if we can survive on my single salary. Looking at the rental market first until my wife has sorted her registration papers and exams to become a practicing Physio, (she has been a professional Physio for 20 years, anyway that is another story) what we have been wandering is that...... is the rental charge all you pay or do you have to pay the council tax and water rates etc as in the UK? or does that fall on the landlords shoulders. I understand we pay the utilities bills (although that would be good if we didn't and that was the landlord too) Can anyone advise what you pay above the rental price quoted? i.e $450 per week + + +. Also any links for calculators would be useful Thanks. We have also found it difficult to budget an expected cost for a "Council Tax" type equivalent for properties any help on this would also be appreciated.
