I guess you didn't read the part of the thread where someone listed the countries where banking services were being withdrawn by Lloyds. I live in NL, one of those countries; we had our account...

Re: Me and My Family

I know we've clashed swords P11, especially when LL's numerous children came out of the woodwork. Looking back my ire was mainly directed at her for being a horrible parent, and only slightly at you...

Re: Is Boris treating the Northern UK worse from Southern during Covid-19?

None, Bob. When hubby called them, they kindly offered to send us a cheque when the closed the account. If I walked into my Dutch bank with a cheque, they'd think I'd just arrived in my time...

Re: UK Bank Accounts after Brexit

If you spend more than 180 (181?) days in a different European country, you would become tax resident in that country. You might think that...

Re: Flying from NL to UK
