Dear All,
I've got PR (sub class 175) and planning to move in Feb, 2010 with my wife and 2 y old child. Initially I will land at Sydney and then will look for work from here.

It would be very helpful if you throw some light on the following queries:

1. Will I've to pay tax for the landed amount which I already paid in native country?
2. From which date I can claim for family and child care benifit?
3. Is there any other benifit provided by Centrelink after landing?

Hi Dream boy,

Have you checked the centrelink website for info? We were told that we would not receive benefits for 2 years but we don't have kids so I'm not sure whether that applies to all benefits. We weren't told that by centrelink but I think it says it somewhere on the DIAC website.
