Here’s a quick rundown of who you should try and tell when you change address:
Your workplace. Tell your manager, human resources or payroll department about your change of address so they can update their systems.
Schools. If you have kids at school, or if you’re studying at another educational facility, they’ll need your updated details for their records too.
Accountant. The numbers expert in your life will need to know your change of address and may be able to help you pass those details on to other financial or government agencies.
Driver licence. Contact your state’s transport authority online and they’ll send you a fancy new sticker to go onto the back of your licence.
Superannuation. Your super is usually a case of “out of sight, out of mind” but you’ll need to let them know you’re moving. Give your super fund a call or update your details online.
Banking. Give your bank a call or go to their online services, so that you don’t miss out on any important updates on your accounts.
Pet registration. Have a pet? You’ll need to let your new council know about your four-legged best friend. Many councils will let you do this online and then they’ll send out the collar tag.
Australia Post. You’ll need to tell Australia Post if you’d like your mail redirected after you move and you can do this online too.
