  • they were predicting it'd have parity with the US dollar by mid next year 3 or 4 months ago. it sucks shit for getting anything from overeas.

  • it's great for sending money home though.

  • if you send loads of $$$$$ to oz and that earns interest while you continue to reside here, for that interest, is that to be taxed in oz or here?

  • i have no idea. do they tax interest?

  • yep. however tiny it was here, had to send it over to my accountant. anyway, aussie banks are the worst for rates and fees. besides, im on the run from HECS repayments. mine's prob about half-a-house in total (owing) now :(

  • HECS, man i owe $28k, but with an EU passport those suckers can kiss my ass. also, you can't send more than a £2k from UK to other country's with-out getting interogated and reamed by UK banks.

  • mine's prob about that. last i checked, i was on about $10k. that was 8yrs ago now. a mate told me that the TaxOffice is going after expats now. dunno if it's true or not. and rather not know to be honest

  • Beware? Why? It's great news for sending money back when the rates are fucked.

    £7 to send a wad of cash back through 1st Contact sounds good to me. What's all this rates/charges bollocks?

  • I don't owe HECS.. suckers!

  • yeh. HECS and Austudy. they're there to reel suckers in. government's way of keeping their funds in circulation at a steady growth within the future workforce. a brilliant scamscheme actually

  • I like the way this Aussie FX trader looks like.:)

    Fat Pizza's Pizza, they're big and they're cheesy!

    Awesome (a few steps down from 531)

  • Serves you right for taking my hard-earned tax dollars you dole ausstudy bludger!

    hang on, arent you suppose to be 'domiciled' in oz? does ATO know about this?

  • Pizza was one of the best programs in recent memory. I love SBS. I was so happy when they started broadcasting Vasilis Garden. Its gone bnack to channel 31 now which is devastating as we cant get a picture at our place in Melbs.

    Vasilis Garden = quality!

  • Have you seen wilfred? possibly one of the best stoney comedies.
    It is awesome - I'd say 529.5 awesome.

  • pizza series 1 and 2 were ok, then went downhill.

  • That scene in Wilfred where the dog is smoking cones one the couch!!! Classic!

  • "you want one of these?"

  • hang on, arent you suppose to be 'domiciled' in oz? does ATO know about this?

    I pay UK tax, I don't earn money in Oz.
    The ATO can suck the lube from my dirty bottom bracket shell..

  • I didn't get into that Wilfred thing anywhere near as much as Pizza.

    I was surrounded by those sort of characters at school and uni though.

    Maaaaate fully sick system in your commodore maaaaate! Pump up da bass maaaaate.

  • I think it must be the tongan smoking.

  • maybe i should get an australian bank account then?
