A few more links that I've found helpful:

Barclays Bank - Expat site & also Barclays offshore are good for info on expat / offshore issues....

also, try looking in some of the big UK sites, like the BBC and the UK Direct Gov site

- good luck!!

....and can I add my pennyworth...

www.gocompare.com

for competitive insurance, money, utilities, travel, motoring and business.

Site recommended on here a few weeks back for car insurance. Poster had insured his car for a good rate with Tesco and had his clean driving record (Canada or Oz - don't remember) recognised.

For those looking for rooms to rent rather than houses I found this site really great:

http://www.spareroom.co.uk/

I posted a "room wanted" ad explaining that I was out of the UK and returning etc. and found a room within a few weeks of the posting.

Hugs,
Welshie
