Re: Divorce and UK Property

I still can't help but feel you are confusing divorce and tax law.

Re: Divorce and UK Property

Err... no. Maybe you are confusing divorce and tax law, I don't know. However, I can assure you that the OP will have no CGT liability on any disposal of a property in which they have no interest.

Re: Divorce and UK Property

If no-one chooses to get jabbed, the borders will never open. Please, please do your bit to remove the excuses they have to keep us imprisoned.

Re: Travel Exemption to UK

Depends how long you are proposing to go for. If you are intending going for more than three months (and are prepared to sign a statutory declaration to that effect), you should be OK.

Re: Question Re RRV and Parent Visa 143

This has me scratching my head. How can you possibly demonstrate compelling reasons for being absent when you have in fact not been absent (having visited twice)?

Re: What's everyone up to for Christmas?

Our first Christmas in Australia since 1988. In a caravan park in Noosa. No spaces but strangely quiet. No idea where everyone has gone. Maybe they are off visiting local friends and relatives.

Qantas aren't flying that route at that moment as far as I know, so I think that is out. Even if they were, I am not sure that WA would allow you to transit (from Melbourne) there given the WA...

Re: Flying back to UK
