Living and working overseas

If you are one of many Australians considering working overseas, you should make sure you are aware of the financial implications of living abroad.

Wherever you are considering moving to, the investment and tax regulations in that country are almost certainly going to be different to those in Australia.

Understanding and planning for those difference will minimise any negative impact on your future wealth creation.

Foreign investment in Australia

The strength of the Australian share market has been underpinned by 15 years of high growth and low inflation in the domestic market.

The Australian government encourages foreign investment by proposing a range of tax concessions, including zero capital gains tax when a non-resident invests in direct Australian shares (that are not related to property).

Where you need specific taxation advice, we will outsource this to international tax specialists to make sure that you are aware of the consequences and opportunities.
