    Dear folk

    If you struggle you would be seriously doing something wrong. :biglaugh:

     

    The tax free thing is salary sacrifice which basically means you can pay for certain things, like rent, childcare, etc (up to a limit) before you pay tax.

    I'm in roughly the same financial situation with a family of four and I've been told I'll be fine. Out of interest - what profession are you in?

    we are a family of 8 who have a wage of less than that coming in per year - we have our own car, pay rent on a large house, pay all our bills and feed all of us and we manage comfortably, we are also managing to save money every month and go out with the children at weekends etc, so in my opinion that would be plenty :) :)

    If you come on a permanent Visa (175/176) don't forget you will get child benefit of at least $500 per month with 3 kids on that salary!
