Default As another tax year comes to a close...

Tomorrow, at the stroke of midnight, I'll be popping the cork on a 12 year old bottle of Glenfiddich single malt and celebrating my first full tax year working overseas. Been a very long time coming, almost two years if truth be told.

On Friday morning, unlike most mornings, I'll sleep right through the 4am Call-to-Prayer, and awaken in my own good time with a well earned hangover.

Congrats. I might do this too.

Except, It's a year tomorrow that I flew here so really, I timed it perfectly.

Thought I'd bring this thread back from the dead and wish this years crop of expats all the best in breaking UK Residency.

And of course to propose a toast to the outgoing HMRC6 guide and the incoming Statutory Residence Test.

Glenlivet 12 year old is nice...

Not at all, the age of a malt is given when it's bottled, whisky doesn't age in glass, only in casks.

38 years as an expat and in that time I have often been frustrated but I have never been bitter.

From the suprisingly defensive responses, neither of you are particularly sweet! It's friday, chaps, and a day of rest and occassional bouts of humour

I must be too old and content to have spotted the humour.
