What are the exchange rates
Your income and assets can change the amount of payment you get from us.
You need to tell us if your income or assets change. You don’t need to do this if they change in value just because of a change in the exchange rate.
Normally the exchange rate we use is a buying rate from the Commonwealth Bank. It’s available 5 working days before the 1st of each month.
You can check the foreign exchange rate we’re using for your income or assets.
Most types of income count in your income test. We use this and the assets test to work out if you can get a payment and calculate rates.
