Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I came to Oz on a free transfer a few years ago and would be happy to answer any questions people may have on doing the same thing.
    It’s been a good move, although some off the guys have been f#cked about in the process – nothing more than they were used to mind you!
  2. I know a Oz ex-duke in Brisbane, mmmmmm

    Did you transfer across before completion of your 22? Was transferring the pension across easy?
  4. I came out before my 22 yrs - I've spoken to others though and the pension is the biggest downer; you can't bring it with you & you'll get taxed (twice) on your UK pension is you come over too!
    That said - jobs for the boys until your 55. And the sun does shine....
  5. Los Cojones - That's balls to you.

    There is only one, in recent times anyway!
  6. Cheers Oz

    Would you get taxed twice if you left your pension in a uk account or an offshore account.

    Why do you get taxed twice?
  8. I don't know - I joined the Dukes because I couldn't do maths!
    One would presume that if you earn the dosh overseas and leave it there you'll not get taxed - butI would say it would have to be declared. OK, my wife does the taxes in my house - but there's a few blokes who I now work with over here who are ex UK Forces. One declares it & is therefore taxed by Aus and the other is doing the dodgy. Up to you. I was a 5 year Offr, so was still red a red arse. Oh, wait, I will get about 1200 quid a year when I'm 65.
    I do know how many points you get for a try though.
