Default National insurance?

Hi, I'm due to move to the US quite soon, does anyone know if I will need to pay National Insurance while I'm there or any other UK based taxes?

Thanks
Dave

You can pay voluntary National Insurance if you want to have a pension from the UK but you don't have to. As for taxes, if you don't have income from the UK in the form of rent from owned property or anything else then you should not have to pay tax to the UK on money earned in the US.

Make sure you contact the Inland Revenue (UK) and let them know you will be living abroad so they can register your tax status appropriately. The US and the UK have a tax treaty to prevent double taxation but you have to let them know where you are....then dont forget to do your US taxes every year.
