Re: Masks

It's the flip side of those that are concerned willfully exposing themselves by mixing with those that don't feel the same way that they do. I can't think of a situation where the former cannot...

Re: Sale of house in UK - tax implications....

Whether you have to pay tax in the UK will depend upon the rules there but I believe that you will for any capital gain accrued that doesn't fall under the principal residence exemption. From the...

Re: Irish Grandparent

I applied for my Irish passport last year. IIRC I sent everything off from Canada in June and I got everything back in October. There was an issue as they require original documents, but one cannot...

Re: Random stuff - the anything else thread

I wonder if his regret was because the best part of him had disappeared down the toilet?

Re: Irish Grandparent

Yes you do. I know because my kids are just going through the process.

A child of an Irish citizen can apply for a passport in a similar way to how those in England can. When you receive a...

Re: Double Taxation - Canada & UK

That is exactly how it happens and, irrespective of whether you have, or haven't, paid tax on it in the UK, the gross amount would be added to your income here and you would pay the required amount...

Re: Double Taxation - Canada & UK

It should make no difference. The qualifier to that would be if the tax paid in the UK was higher than the total tax paid in Canada, then it would be better to have it paid tax free in the UK, but...

Re: Coronavirus

I accept that you work when you are sick. I work when I am sick. Whether all people work when they are sick is debatable. I'd suggest that those that do would likely work whether at home, or in...

Re: Coronavirus

Yes

In most law firms, the firm keeps track of which person is responsible for bringing a particular piece of work in.

Lots of law firms have lots of fantastic lawyers that have no personality...

Re: Technical question about tax and UK pension

I would argue that, for 60(J) to apply, it must come from a pension plan. If it has already been converted to cash, it is now simply income and will need to be declared as such.

Re: Coronavirus

Not in Calgary. I have no idea about other places.

The thing that struck when I came here was that there was a ladder: First year lawyers did first year lawyer things; second year lawyers, did...

Re: Coronavirus

From a Canadian perspective, being a lawyer for "less than 10 years" isn't newly qualified. In Calgary, at the mid to large sized firms, one would be expected to be partner at the 7 year point (has...

Re: Technical question about tax and UK pension

While that may work from the Canadian side, it will not work from the UK side as they require all such transfers must go into a QROPS.

Lots on here have used the "60J" method to transfer funds...

Re: Coronavirus

Maybe.

At the stage in life that I am at, I can work anywhere. However, I can't imagine what it would be like to be a newly qualified lawyer "working from home." Being able to walk down a...

Re: UK to Calgary - Family of 6

We moved to Calgary with a family of 5 and required a mortgage of around $250,000 but no other debt. Interest rates were 5.25% then. I didn't have a job on arrival but got one paying $55,000 2 weeks...

Re: Coronavirus

I see that there is evidence from England that is 2 months old that showed that, by then, pre-Omircon 2 (or whatever it is called) that was far more transmissable and also not accounting for the...

Re: Coronavirus

Fair enough. I have to admit that, until covid hit, the only time I have experienced anyone in hospital wearing a mask was when I went into an operating theatre.

Re: Self-Employed Lawyer - How to Prove Experience for EE

What type of lawyer are you? If a litigation solicitor, would you be able to get letters from Barristers you had instructed? What about letters from other lawyers you have dealt with?

FFS. I really wish you would stick to facts.

I didn't state that there would be no second wave. I stated that I'd wager that there will be no second wave. I note that you didn't take that bet.

Re: Masks

I don't have a view. I am a Type I diabetic and, as I am north of 50, I guess I am in the vulnerable category. I have had two shots of Pfizer. I haven't been boosted as, once again, the data...
