If you have assets in the UK, careful planning before you move could save you thousands of dollars in tax.
As an Australian tax resident, you will be liable to pay tax on worldwide income and gains. This means that even assets outside of Australia, such as UK pensions, ISAs, and investment accounts, are assessed and liable for tax in Australia.
The retirement system also works very differently in Australia. With careful planning you can create some fantastic opportunities to mitigate tax and make the most of your future retirement. But failing to plan could lead to paying far more in tax than you need to.
