Default U.K. and Philippines Tax Advice and Tax Return Filing

Could anyone please recommend a firm or individual who can assist with basic tax advice and tax return filing for a U.K. expat living in the Philippines. Preferably in the Quezon City area

Why not go on the double taxation route which negates having to pay UK tax.
Go to the HMRC website and look for Double Taxation Treaty Relief.

Thank you but that requires me to have already registered for tax in the Philippines and I would like to get advice before doing so

Not quite. the DT relates to qualifying pensions but not Government pensions.
I have to pay tax on my State Pension each year but my private pensions are paid net thanks to the DT.

My wifes teachers pension and small state pension are lumped together and taxed under PAYE in UK.

Just a cautionary tale. If the Philippes decide to tax remittances your average tax burden could be four times more than the UK. Much lower tax thresholds before eligible for tax.
Every case is different and I am just pointing out what could be a nightmare for some.

Very True! But in that case the SRRV visa will lose some of its appeal as one "perK" is no tax on remittances here.
