Re: Reasons for returning to the UK

Karen,
We flew home with only suitcases (19), so we didn’t use a shipping company because all our baggage flew with us. It saved an awful lot of hassle with paperwork as well as knowing that all...

Re: Reasons for returning to the UK

IMO the ACA has a lot to be desired and has put so many people who earn over £64K at a great disadvantage. It segregates those who earn more, not so much a large income but more than the average,...

Re: TOR01 or not?

No, we don’t miss it at all since we so enjoy being back in England. It was a wonderful experience and we couldn’t have found a nicer place to live. However, we plan to make frequent trips back to...

Re: TOR01 or not?

The 18 + box cost $4.5k. Cheap compared to container shipping and all the organising and paperwork which goes with it.

Re: Advice on keeping UK address whilst away

We kept our bank accounts for the 25 years of been absent. We transferred the address to my parents address when we left, even though we kept our house in the UK and didn’t rent it out. I didn’t...

Re: TOR01 or not?

And BTW, we brought 8 further suitcases in a few months earlier and 4 suitcases just prior to that. Again, no ToR needed for doing so. Just get on a plane and go! All the best to you. TM

Re: TOR01 or not?

Re: Reasons for returning to the UK

My husband and I moved back earlier this year and we are loving every single minute. It feels like ‘proper’ home after been Stateside for 25 years.

Many reasons, including the British humour,...

Re: US to UK - Seeking Financial Advice

Thank you for your reply Durham_Lad.
It appears from what you say that we will get the option of being asked whether we want the tax withholding at the time of the withdrawal. Like you, we will...

Re: US to UK - Seeking Financial Advice

Hi Durham Lad,
Do you know if IRA distributions are subject to an automatic ‘withholding tax’ by the managed account broker while we’re retired living in the UK? We will be filing our 2018 US taxes...

Re: TOR question

Only too happy to be of help. We brought a few delicate items such as cut glass and some pictures with glass in and placed a small amount of bubble wrap over them. It all depends on how you pack...

Re: Transferwise (or others) to move just over $10k

Why is keeping a credit card pointless? If one returns to the UK permanently then they don’t have to apply for one. Most useful, for example if paying for insurance or even car rental. I’ve read...

Re: Transferwise (or others) to move just over $10k

Also worth keeping is a UK credit card. We kept our credit card in credit by a ‘few bob’ for 25 years so that we would never loose it. We used it minimally and only periodically when we returned to...
