Re: 2% Estate Agency

I have to say my experience over the last 4 months of house hunting (after a very quick sale) has been much more positive on the email responses front.

Re: VFS D7 Visa Application Process

Thanks for that clarification. On the official use section of the form it has a tick box for 'Means of Transport' and I assumed the pre-paid transport requirement in Q32 would need some proof as I...

Re: VFS D7 Visa Application Process

I'm not convinced about my implication either! We are in similar situations and trying to find the answer without forking out hundreds for dubious advice. Your situation is complicated by the need to...

Re: Capital Gains Declaration

Re: Capital Gains Declaration

We are in virtually the same position (once we get our residency) although our concern over Portuguese CGT is smaller as our UK home would have the bigger bill (but is our main home anyway so no...

Re: Capital Gains Declaration

Why not leave then?
Sell your UK house (no tax to pay as it is your main home), leave UK and don't spend more than 16 days there in the current tax year.

You will then be non resident in the UK...

Re: Capital Gains Declaration

I assume the permanent residence you refer to is in Portugal?
I presume your wife has dual Portuguese/UK citizenship?
Do you stay in Portugal more than 183 days a year?
