    They weren't translated copies Prag, for me it was a case of getting copies of an original UK passport and an original birth certificate certified as true copies, as part of an application for an Aussie tax number.

    If I was elsewhere, a doctor, teacher, policeman etc etc could have certified the copies as genuine.

    It seems amazing, but other countries seem to don't trust Thais to certify these documents!

    And the only people I thought could do that was the MoFA. Every time I've had to get a 'certified copy' of anything had to be done that way.

    Hang on I think that for 'translated copies'.

    ^ Thailand wasn't involved in this... it was UK documents being certified for Australian authorities.

    It just happened that I live in Thailand so had to use the Aussie embassy.

    Sorry. I need to pay more attention to what the thread is about.

    As a footnote to this thread...

    This forum never ceases to surprise me. A member very kindly put me in touch with an accountant based in Adelaide, and to cut a long story short I've just transferred under $8000 Aussie to the ATO to clear seven years of unpaid taxes. It is amazing how low a good accountant can get the tax liability. There were no fines and no accrued interest was charged... yeah, I find that hard to believe as well.

    As I get older I've become a worrier and am gradually trying to remove any sources of stress from my life, many of which I couldn't have cared less about 10 years ago. This undeclared rent had been gnawing away at the back of my mind for several years and it feels good to get it sorted and be legit. Worth every cent!

    Now I'm free to sell the apartment legitimately and stash the cash where it can't be found. Maybe I will be able to retire one day after all!

    Many thanks ootai!


    Right... what's next on my list...

    ^ It is a relief to be sure.

    I think all these things weighing on your mind can bring you down a bit.

    The one good thing (apart from finding Coco!) about Covid has been the time it's given me to sort stuff out.

    Nice one Mendip, I wouldn't sell it just yet.
    Always good to have a bolt hole.
