Default Canadian RRSPs and RRIFs

Has anyone had experience of the tax implications of having RRSPs or RRIFs, and moving from Canada to the UK to retire? Alternatively, has anyone found an accountant who has a good knowledge of the tax systems of both countries.

We are looking forward to moving back to the UK in 2 weeks time, but still do not understand the tax situation, despite a lot of research.

Would be grateful for advice from anyone who has been in a similar situation.

Hi there and welcome to the forum

You might like to check out the Moving Back to the UK section on the forum, and maybe ask some questions in there. I'm sure you're not the first person to move from Canada back to UK.

If you get no joy there, try posting in the Canada section. Someone might have the answer. You never know.

Thanks very much! I'm not very familiar with how this site works as yet.

Just hit the word Forum or Forum Index up on the top left of this page. That will bring you to the Index page.

Just scan down the page and you'll find both sections.

If you get stuck on anything, just shout.

Hello and a big welcome to BE.

Excellent information can be found in the BE Wiki, not forgetting the Living and Moving Abroad forum that will help you, another set of great help is the permanent threads at the TOP of each forum, they are very pertinent to that particular forum and makes sensible reading.

Moderators deal with any problems that arise such as inappropriate posts, spammers etc, you will find their names at the bottom right hand side of each forum's index in bold font.

Please contact me if I can give you any further help.

Rosemary
