Working or moving abroad creates complex tax and social security implications for the individual. At the same time, it may open up opportunities for saving tax which often go unexploited. Tax regulations present a minefield to the unwary and can consume time and energy which would be better focused on the assignment or adapting to life in a new country.

Anyone facing a move to or from the UK should be asking themselves the following questions:

  • Are you claiming all the tax relief you are eligible for? Click here to see how much tax you could be saving in the UK
  • Are you paying too much tax in the UK?
  • Is a tax repayment due to you? How would you set about claiming it?
  • Could you face the prospect of a tax enquiry with confidence - or do nasty shocks lie in store?
  • Are you sure you’ve fulfilled all your form-filling obligations on leaving or arriving in the UK?
  • What are the social security implications of your move?

If you're unsure about any of the above, but absolutely certain you don't want the headache of sorting it all out, contact UK Expat.
