How Mistakes Get Made (And How To Avoid Them!) AMERICANS are a funny lot! No, it hasn’t taken me fourteen years to work this one out! One of the things that still amazes me is how the US authorities don’t see (or don’t care) how negative a word “alien” is, when used to describe anyone […]

Tax Authorities Are Not There To Advise You! WOULD YOU expect the UK tax authority to give you tax information that may help you pay less tax? In an ideal world they might do so, but we certainly haven’t got there yet! I’m particularly referring to the fact that, as US residents, it is unlikely […]

One Will Good, Two Wills Even Better! OVER THE past few months, I’ve noticed more people are asking me about their Wills and, in particular, what arrangements they should make regarding assets remaining in the UK.

Not the old Foreign Bank Account Report, known to his friends (and others) as TDF 60-92.1, but the new form known as FINCEN 114. Except it’s not a form […]

FATCA – The Facts, And Not The Panic! A LOT has been written about FATCA (Foreign Account Tax Compliance Provisions, but it was unpronounceable with a “P” at the end!) and much of it has been alarmist.

If You Worked For The UK Government, Can They Tax You? A QUERY that’s come up recently is the question of tax on pensions paid from the UK. In particular, government pensions. I don’t mean here state pensions (social security as it is here, the old age pension as it used to be known, but […]

A Tax Suggestion Using The Ocean WORKING IN tax isn’t always what you’d call “fun”, so I thought I’d write a more lighthearted column this month a lost opportunity in tax planning – the Atlantic Ocean. I have often thought the cruise industry – in particular, transatlantic cruising – has not taken to heart the […]
