First time and we won money on the lottery.

    Recommended Posts

    Just to let you know that on Saturday just gone, we went to put some money on the Lottery, which was so confusing, as it was our first time we had done it. So I just said to the woman on the lottery counter "here is $10.00" and she did not give me any change, bloody hell thats a lot of money, me expecting $2 for 6 numbers. Off we went I have had the lottery ticket in my wallet all weekend. Anyway I said to Jane the wife go to the lottery counter today and check the lottery numbers before you catch the bus for work. The woman said “you have won”, Jane could not believe it at first,” how much’ she said $1492.20, all of a sudden she starts placing cash in Jane’s hand. So Jane is currently on the bus to work with this money in her purse. We have just put $700 down for a lush corner unit and still owe $700 so that has now been covered. We are going to buy a Washing Machine as well. So first time we did the lottery and we won $1492.20. Life in Adelaide is so sweet………

        Dear forum members,

        I will be moving to OZ next month and have a query on keeping money overseas.
        I am a permanent resident, currently, in my home country, I hold local currency (Euro) and AUD.

        I will open a bank account at NAB next week and will transfer all my AUD to that account prior our move in OZ.
        However, I would like to keep on my bank account in Germany my EURO and when exchange rates will become better, I will exchange to AUD and transfer them to my OZ bank account.

        The problem is that I don't know how long it might take for the AUD to get to its low rates, therefore I might keep my EURO in Germany for a while.

        My question is, what is the policy of the ATO if I keep a bank account overseas and NOT gaining any interest rates on it and then transfer that money to OZ? let's say after a year residing in OZ.

        I am looking forward to getting your inputs on this issue,
        Eugene
