Atlas Australian Expat Blog

 

Welcome to the Atlas Australian Expat Blog. We’re all about making sure that Australian expats are able to access the right information in order to make fully informed financial decisions.

Whether its “what happens to my superannuation when I move overseas“, “where should I accumulate my assets as a Australian expat“, “what financial considerations do I need to be aware of when becoming an expat” and many more topics, this expat blog will answer all of those questions and many more.

Financial regulation, both  in Australia and overseas, is rapidly changing and Australian expats are finding it difficult keeping up with the changes let alone determining how it may affect them. When considering financial advice you need to look at it in a two dimensional space –  both from the Australian perspective and the country that you are domiciled in.

If you find a topic that we haven’t covered (we’re sorry, our advice doesn’t extend to why cats jump when they see cucumbers) then please feel free to contact us with your suggestion.
