Re: Going back to work - tax implications

So I am reading it wrong then? It says it is a tax credit (not a deduction) that he receives - does that not mean that he owes $11,800 less tax when I have no income?
Therefore the amount I earn up...

Re: Citizenship Application Timeline

Ours was 13 months - but we informed them we were out of the country for a few weeks mid-way through the process so I think they probably put it on hold or pushed it to the back of the queue and that...

Re: Citizenship Ceremony

Re: Citizenship Ceremony

We took our PR cards and our COPR. You would have been issued one when your PR was confirmed and used it for when you landed.

Re: Failing to comply with PR obligations; re-applying

I agree -I think it’s in the blood as a British expat to want to be able to be free to wander as we wish. Just being without a valid passport for a month when we were waiting for our Canadian one was...

Re: The new winter thread - 2018-19

You can go right off some folk you know :sneaky:
On the plus side it is beautiful when the snow shines on the sparkling snow - and the south facing windows keep the heating bill down.

Re: The new winter thread - 2018-19
