UK-US Tax Information – 2016 Already – Looking Forward!

2016 Already – Looking Forward! A NEW YEAR and let’s hope it brings some understanding amongst tax authorities that we are (for the most part), doing our best with the over-complicated systems they offer us. As we all start another round of searching for our 2015 documentation to make an early start on the tax […]

UK-US Tax Information – State Tax Can Be An Issue, Too!

UK-US Tax Information – State Tax Can Be An Issue, Too!

State Tax Can Be An Issue, Too! JUST ONE of the interesting differences between US and UK tax systems is the place of state income tax. I probably knew more about US taxes than most people before I came here – rate, generally lower than the UK; deductions, much more generous than the UK – […]

UK-US Tax Information – And When It’s Time To Go (Home!)

And When It’s Time To Go (Home!) FOR MANY people there comes a time when they think about returning to the UK. A few months ago I wrote about this from the point of view of your arrival in the UK, but this month I’m thinking about it from the point of view of leaving […]

UK-US Tax Information – Why You May Wish You Were A Company!

Why You May Wish You Were A Company!

UK-US Tax Information – The Chancellor’s Welcome Mat!

Thinking Of Going Home – The Chancellor’s Welcome Mat! FOR MANY Brits the emotional pull of home is strong – albeit to the country we left, rather than the country as it is now!

UK-US Tax Information – One IRS Agent At A Time!

One IRS Agent At A Time! YESTERDAY I resolved a case that had started over four years ago under the Overseas Voluntary Disclosure Initiative (OVDI).

UK-US Tax Information – HMRC Want Your Money!

HMRC – They Want Your Money (As Well As The IRS!) A FEW WEEKS ago, in a moment of relative calm, I was browsing the UK government’s website and I came across “Consultations”, where they seek the public’s views on various proposals.

UK-US Tax Information

UK-US Tax Information

To The Budget – And Beyond! TODAY – as I write – was UK Budget Day! As a total non-event, this must be a winner. Even more so when it’s occurring a few weeks before an election, so the overall requirement must be – don’t upset anyone! As expected the provision I mentioned last month […]

UK-US TAX INFORMATION

Fifty Shades Of FATCA (admit it, that got you interested!) OVER THE past few months, many clients have sent me copies of the letters they’ve received from UK high street banks asking for information from which the banks will decide whether or not their customer is a “US person”.
