the country is extremely well suited to those who move there from all over the world.”

Moving to Australia has tremendous financial rewards for its expatriates who are the wealthiest of all countries according to the Hong Kong Shanghai Banking Corporation annual expat report.

People who emigrated to the world’s sixth-largest country will be delighted by their quality of life as 20 per cent earn more than $200,000 (£126,000) so can revel in Australia’s stunning scenery during their well-earned free time. This compares favourably with the rest of the world, where nearly twice the number (11 per cent) of workers are paid salaries higher than $200,000 (AUD$226,000).

Vanessa Ballauff, a marketing manager who has moved back to Australia, believes there is a “stronger work ethic” in her home country than the United Kingdom. She found this from working in London for six years before returning to Sydney. Australian expatriates’ hard- working qualities are handsomely rewarded with 10 per cent paid an annual salary of over $300,000, a figure that is double the global percentage.

It is no wonder why the survey showed a third of those who have left Australia are contemplating moving back home, with 37 per cent disappointed by their host country’s current economy. Banking is the most popular Australian expat career, as 20 per cent choose this role compared to 17 per cent worldwide.

The findings from the survey should dispel the myth of people moving to Australia solely because of the weather and beaches, but with a greater lifestyle gained from a tireless attitude shown at work. This is a prosperous country where lucrative salaries are earned as a result of hard work and the right attitude.

These qualities have been obvious to Mrs Ballauff, who realised how committed the Australian workforce is while she was away. This proves it would be a calculated and sensible decision to relocate your business to this part of the world.

A spokesperson for Interdean, experts in international relocation, has released a statement following the report. They said: “For many potential expatriates, one of the major things to consider is the question of cultural integration and assimilation.

“Australia’s strong migrant communities, many of which have been well established for generations, mean that the country is extremely well suited to those who move there from all over the world.”
