Hi there to anyone who remembers me from the old days

I'm looking for recommendations for a tax specialist with experience of moving pension funds from the US to the UK.

Thank you!!

All good ta. I've joined the ping-pong crowd - I loved living in the UK but scouse didn't settle well, so we decided to move back to Oz. I've told him if he changes his mind again, he's on his own Hope all's good with you too Sally.

The Little Lion has just started at Portsmouth Uni. How are you?

Empty nest has been harder than I thought it would be too. Good luck with your plans x

Hi Sally,

I have used KIERAN LYNCH FCA, FCCA, CTA. CHARTERED ACCOUNTANT AND CHARTERED TAX ADVISER, Alsager Cheshire since my return from Canada. He has been very helpful in preparing our uk tax returns and providing advice on how to transfer our Cdn pension investments. He also has experience in US taxes. Best of luck.

Just for fun - in case I need him (and he is close by) - I clicked on the link. Here's where I ended up: www.lynch.pro. Is this the same person?

That’s the person that I use. He is not close to me so everything has been done over the phone and email and it has all worked out well. Trying to find an accountant that had UK and Canadian experience was like trying to find a needle in a haystack. I found him on this forum (recommended by someone else) and I am so glad that I did. 😊

Hey Sally. So far I keep my head in the sand re money, tax, pensions and all that grown-up stuff so I'd be no help! Good to see you around though

Hey Sally, good to see you.

I'm going to need this too in a few years time - so post back here if you do find someone good for USA to UK - I've got a 401K and the SS WEP thing all looks a bit ugly.
