Re: Depositing an HMRC cheque in Canada

The tellers won't know how the specific amount was arrived at, only that it is at least $100 and can be more depending on your banking history - it is decided behind the scenes.

Re: Depositing an HMRC cheque in Canada

Yes, the machines are emptied and checked as you say - and not weeks apart.

Re: Depositing an HMRC cheque in Canada

It is true that the more you need access to uncleared funds, the less likely you are to be given it / the...

Re: Depositing an HMRC cheque in Canada

The banks have to allow access to at least $100 of "uncleared" funds in your account from a CAD/Canadian bank cheque. This amount can increase as you establish a good banking record, and they are...

Re: Shipping lists - my packing inventory is super vague

Ours didn't tally with the packers' list at all - pretty much for the reasons you have stated. I made up our own lists and presented those and the packers' lists, and both were copied, but they...

Re: Children's Immunisation Record

Re: Presidents Choice Financial - anyone bank with these?

My Scotia branch don't put a hold on my sterling cheques at all (which is good for me as we often need the funds immediately). Not keen on the PC way, far too long to hold on to my cash.

Re: Class 2 National Insurance for expatriates

I found the site has apparent contradictions in several places.

I am also grateful I have another 19 years before I truly have to worry. Maybe it will all have been made clear by then.

Re: Class 2 National Insurance for expatriates

It's working on the maximum 30 year rule until 2016, I guess, when they will no doubt change the calculator. Until then the only way to find out the true figure is to get a pension statement which...

Re: Class 2 National Insurance for expatriates

I think for us oldies they do add them on.

This is my calculation, if I input 29 years of work:

Re: Presidents Choice Financial - anyone bank with these?

How does PC and/or credit unions handle Sterling cheques?

We use Scotiabank and pay in Sterling cheques regularly over the counter - so we do use the tellers quite a bit. But we're also looking...

Re: CRA asked me for my UK income?

We're poor. We get GST/HST rebate. We declared our UK employee income for 2013 (before becoming resident in Canada). I didn't think it was a big deal, just gave them our P45 figures.

Re: Class 2 National Insurance for expatriates

To be absolutely sure, you should call Future Pensions.
