Moving can be very stressful and there are many things to remember. There are many steps involved, one important step is changing your address. The importance behind updating your address is to avoid missing important mail or packages. You could be charged fees for not paying a bill on time, or miss an invitation to an event, for instance — or perhaps more importantly, leave yourself open to identity theft.
If you have recently moved, it’s important to let everyone know. To make the entire process easier for you, we have compiled a moving checklist to help you cover all the bases. If possible, you should aim to notify all of the relevant people and organisations listed below before you make the big move.
If you are relocating your business, then you have a legal requirement to ensure your business details are kept up-to-date, in many cases you must notify government authorities within 28 days of moving. The Australia Taxation Office is one of the most important, let us at Welsh Tax know and we can update your address change directly. The Australian Business Register is one of the important authorities that needs to know of your address change. You can change your address in a number of ways:
