I've been renting an apartment in Melbourne and the tenancy agreement is due to end in August. However I need to move out now so want to break the lease early, does anyone know if a) this is possible and b) how much it would cost to do this?

Hi,   Please can you give me any advice on visas (best one - work to do to get 2nd year), work (thinking of working as soon as I get there for a bit of money). I don't really have a time limit, but am thinking a year or two.   I understand I need a tax file number which we get out there, do I need an Australian bank account or anything else as well? - any recommendations?! Whilst working we'd be looking for a flat/apartment (don't mind sharing with others), is there a good website to find others to do this?   Thanks

I've heard that paying income tax here in Australia is different to Europe and that I will have to fill in a tax return. Does someone have more information on this process?

Can anyone recommend a company which transfers money overseas? I need to transfer a large amount back to the UK and the bank's rate is so bad.

My parents have just retired here and have asked me to help them organise their Wills. I dont really know where to start, does anyone know anything about inheritance law here or where I can go to seek advice? I don't really want to be paying huge amounts of legal fees!

Howdie. I'm starting my own business in Melbourne and need some advice on where to find a good accountant and lawyer. I'm from the US and don't know a huge amount about the system here for establishing a business, so ideally I need someone who has experience dealing with expats. Does anyone have any recommendations? Thanks
