Are you thinking of moving back to Australia? Do you know the financial reality of returning home? If not, this is the perfect seminar for you.

During the seminar, Tom Jeffries and Ben Smythe will be discussing the financial aspects of moving back to Australia. This includes the true living expense costs as an Australian resident, and preparing for the return to the Australian tax net. Furthermore they will be exploring avenues for investing your excess cash, apart from buying more properties, and advising how much money is really needed for a comfortable retirement in Australia.

The seminar will also cover the Australian tax system, and how to plan for going from a broad 15% rate to a 47% tax rate. Finally the tax practicalities of spending ½ your time in Australia and ½ your time overseas will be explained.

If you are planning to leave Hong Kong for Australian anytime soon, come and join us on October 22nd for this lunch seminar.
