Re: Borrowing Barclays PinSentry device

Barclays have an iPhone\Android app which generates a security code, have you looked into getting this? Might do what you need, although you probably need the pinsentry to set it up!

Re: SIMS in Europe/UK

After 15th December 2015, roaming charges will be banned within Europe, due to an EU law.
I suspect not much use to you, but maybe helpful for others, so thought I would post it here, in case the...

Re: Remaining in the UK - but negotiating salary with USA

I would say £100k for a PA is high, even in London, I'm sure there are quite a few PAs who earn that type of money, but I would suspect the majority of PAs are on far less, hitting somewhere between...

Re: Do you prefer the UK to the USA

That ties in with the point I was making about guns earlier. Logically you expect one thing to happen as a consequence, but in reality there are very often unforeseen and unintended results that...

Re: Do you prefer the UK to the USA

On a simplistic level yes, but people behaviour and logic don't necessarily equate to the same thing.

Re: Do you prefer the UK to the USA

Surely this depends on the burglar, you either get the guy who thinks "Better not do this, the householders might have a gun" or you get the guy who thinks "The householders might have a gun, so I...

Re: Google Glass....

With the above in mind, I can see businesses not allowing them on their premises, both to avoid 'espionage' and to avoid lawsuits left, right and centre, as every possible incident is likely to be...

Re: British income in the US

My thought for making it UK based was that the OPs client is in the UK, and seems to prefer trading in the UK using £'s, but maybe a US corporation wouldn't be a problem.

The OP may or may not own...

Re: British income in the US

I was purely thinking in terms of reducing liability whilst still being a sole proprietor - as the only client would be the UK Ltd, you'd be at no risk of getting sued or similar and losing personal...

Re: British income in the US

Ahh, my expertise is on the UK side, I didn't realise the US side would make it so difficult to be a foreign owner of a UK Ltd.

That said, and this is purely off the top of my head, without...

Re: British income in the US

You don't need to be resident in the UK to set up a Ltd company, so the OP could if they wished do this.

One possible reason this may make sense, is that they can then draw dividends from the...

Re: Yank in UK thinking of moving back to US w/family

I can't help you with the moving to CA part of the discussion, but a few things to consider:

I would ask some questions to your accountant, you seem to be paying a lot more tax than you need to. ...

Re: Self sufficient?

In my opinion, I would agree with Bob that the risk of litigation in the US and the reach of the IRS is much greater than the litigation risk in the UK and...

Re: temporarily moving and renting in US

Keep working at it.

Customer support may not be the best route to do it, so work on developing other skills too. You have the industry knowledge, so look at what else you would need to be...

Re: temporarily moving and renting in US

Re: us/uk citizen and baby.

Depending on the length of overstay, it may or may not be an issue.

I'd seriously think about it though, as with a young baby, I can't imagine it would be much fun if you were both unemployed in...

Re: us/uk citizen and baby.

Have you considered moving to the UK, instead of your boyfriend moving to the US?

Realistically you'd still have to get married, but it would be generally quicker and easier than him moving to the...

Re: Inbetweeners Movie

I'm assuming you've not seen the movie before?
Do you watch the TV series?

If you find the gross and childish humour in it funny (I do! :D) then you will enjoy the movie, as it's basically a long...

Re: Which E2 business on a $500K budget

Re: Which E2 business on a $500K budget

No need for the snarky remark about remotely understanding the businesses, just because you didn't like what I said.

In fact, my statement wasn't referring to the visa, more to the general running...

Re: relocation to Houston under company transfer - tax questions

To go with the post above, from the UK side, consider that if it is not a permanent move, you may well be considered 'ordinarily resident' in the UK by HMRC.
