Money Issues

Most Australian expatriates don't fit the profile of the London based investment bankers, or US based celebrities, that tend to feature so regularly in the expatriate profiles featured in Australian newspapers. Nevertheless, for many, being an expatriate does represents a financial opportunity to "get ahead"and so it is sobering to appreciate that many expatriates come back to Australia worse off than when they left.

That doesn't have to be the case and it doesn't mean that you cannot enjoy your life as an expat - quite the contrary. It does however mean that you will consciously need to invest and/or save and to be smart about tax and planning - that's what these pages are all about!
