I am currently living in Australia but will be moving to the UK in 5 months. I'm getting the Change Account Currency notification when logging into Adsense but do not want to make the change now to AUD. The only way I could find to make a further change to currency reporting, once a currency has been selected, seems to be to close my account and reopen one in 5 months. Are there any ways around this? Would it be possible to make the change to GBP now - perhaps change to a UK address and bank account (which I can do)? Would it be possible to wait 5 months then make the change (and still be able to log in - I doubt it?)

Google hasn't given a time frame for when the change will be required, so I wouldn't worry about it being required too soon. Leave it. Besides - won't you have to open a new account when you change countries anyway?
I think you can change countries (with some exceptions) and can do so by submitting an adsense support form. I am pretty sure this does not involve opening a new account. As for the wait and see, it could be 6 months before I move which is a fair wait. Perhaps I'll wait a couple of months then make the change early - if I still have an account to change ;)
