Practical Living and Working Abroad – Golding and Connolly

Welcome to Practical Living and Working Abroad - Golding and Connolly, a highly practical commentary on the issues to be considered when living and/or working overseas. 

Topics covered include preparing to live abroad (including considerations such as schooling, accommodation, employment contracts, familiarisation, and dealing with furniture and possessions), documentation, travel and relocation costs, and dealing with UK investments, important considerations on arrival in the overseas country (including bank accounts, embassy registration, buying or leasing property, whether a foreign will is necessary, and avoiding problems with local laws about bribery, money laundering and such matters).

The service does not purport to be an in-depth tax guide, but does flag many important tax considerations for the expat, covering everything from domicile and residence issues, to income tax, NIC, CGT, inheritance tax and the letting of the UK property.
