    Hello everyone,

    Are you looking or know anyone who is looking for a professional, qualified accountant or a bookkeeper?

    I am considering opening my own business as a Bookkeeper, whilst also offering that extra experience of a qualified accountant to the mix who is able to prepare financial statements and lodge your tax returns for you too.

    It would be great to have some feedback from you all.

    Please email me:

    I could see you developing a fair amount of business, especially from Ex Poms moving over here, who want to know the in and outs of the tax system.

    It must be very frustrating to have such a highly qualifed occupation and not be able to find work here. I hope things pick up for you soon.:wub:

    Cheers for that Colin, I certainly hope I do succeed in this.
    It is terribly frustrating not being able to find an accounting job in this market, especially knowing what I left behind in the UK, but hopefully freelancing works out :rolleyes:

    Looking at the sister site to this one 'PIO', I think most people are asking questions about capital gains, on sale of houses in UK after moving here, How long they have to move money to Australia before having to pay tax on it, and stuff like that related to moving here. The are always the general questions on taxation being asked. I don't know if you are on PIO site, but if you are you can ask the moderators how you can advertise on there. I think that as well as allowing you to place an add on the correct pages, you can 'edit' your signature to show your Web address (if you have one), providing you help out by giving general advice on the pages there. It could be a good way of offering advice and generating interest for your services. 'Cal' one of our illustrious moderators on here may be able to give you more info/advice on that side.

    Here is the link to PIO, just incase your not familiar with it, you can look through and see what sort of questions are asked.

    PS where abouts are you situated?
  5. Hi,
    OH is an accountant and we are planning on making the move in July.
    We were wondering how difficult it is to find work.
    We are looking at Brisbane. He is 15 years post qualified ACA. He has specialised in financial and commercial Accounting with large retailers on high street, internet, catalogue and telephone selling, currently in information technology sector.

    Hi Melanie,

    At the moment it is quite hard to find a job if you do not have local Australian experience. I am an ACCA, with over 10 years experience in Public practice, and have been looking for a job for about 6 months now, with no luck.
    If your other half has contacts in the UK that can contact people in Oz on his behalf, that might help. It seems to me that the way to obtain a job here is through contacts (of which I have none!).
    But, hopefully the market picks up next year, they say February........
    Good luck with your move and hope everything works out for yous.....any help/advice I can give, do ask :)
