Case Studies

An overseas work assignment

Mrs J took up employment in Germany for a 12 month period and required advice on her residency status.

Moving overseas

Mr and Mrs P were unsure of the tax consequences of living overseas (in Portugal).  They retained their UK home and rented this out, but had not registered under the Non-Resident Landlord Scheme.

Buying a property overseas

Mr A required tax advice in relation the purchase of a holiday home in France.

Moving to the UK

The P family relocated from India to the UK and needed advice on how they would be taxed in the UK.

Working overseas

Mr C undertook work in Dubai, Saudi Arabia and Egypt and was unsure of the tax reporting requirements.

Retiring abroad

Mr and Mrs H chose to emigrate permanently to Spain.

Receiving income from overseas

Mr J was in receipt of income from the US and was unsure of the tax treatment.

Overseas tax

It is important to understand both the UK and overseas tax implications. While certain general principles do apply, specific advice on your circumstances and detailed knowledge of the tax regime of the overseas country is essential.
