    DH has 2 Uni degrees as well as multiple other qualifications, he's apparently earning 10% less than he could!

    Our income is similar, for us it's family tax a & b, large family & multiple birth allowance.

    We have been told 4 times we are not entitled to FTB A & B is that because you have 3 children TripleTime, were we only have one?

    we are going to buy this house...so then our mortgage for this will be instead of rent..
    But we are paying almost 100% mortgage. then life will be a lot easier.
    Income varies but roughly..$4k a week comes in after everything else has been paid and gone in to savings accounts.

    $310 a week in an older house... massive backyard, but rather small house... 2 decent bedrooms, one is tiny... small bathroom...tiny laundry, small kitchen and small living area. It has 2 useless areas that are too small to really use for anything other than computers/bird cages (which is what we have in them). I think one is supposed to be a dining room- you'd be hard pressed to find a dining suite small enough to fit though. lol.

    This is about 1/2 hour North of Bris.

    yeah....

    it is a lot...its DH's own business though so it comes with some downsides..
    like everything is contract and could just stop.
    we have to pay staff and all kinds of other stuff.

    if the GFC was to hit hard here, we would be up the creek without a paddle or a boat...
    we have savings but still..its a hard one.

    But i appreciate that we do get a lot.
    only 5 years ago I was working at woolies nightfill, pulling in $180 a week and DH was on $50k!

    No idea. Friends of ours are on similar salary to DH with one & family tax.

    The family tax that comes in is tiny but covers the health insurance.
