Default Hello from Mumbai

Hi,

I am a UK resident who works for several months a year in Mumbai and am currently grappling with the added complication of moving from the UK to France! I am a technical consultant and my clients are Indian and I travel back and forth between my home in Devon and Mumbai on a regular basis, recently I have only been staying in the UK for a few days each month spending all my time when not in India in France where my partner lives. Now I'm looking at the possibility of giving up life in the UK entirely and commuting between France and India, perhaps letting my house in the UK as an added income, perhaps selling up...

The more I investigate, the more the process seems fraught with difficulties and I had thought that with the UK, being 'in Europe', where I lived within the EC was unimportant... how naive was I! Taxation and healthcare in particular seem to be major issues, hopefully membership of this forum will help in the coming months...!

Chris

Hi Chris

Welcome to BE and the India forum.

You sure don't do things by half do you ?

We have forums for both India and France which I recommend you check out as you can then chat with other expats living and working in both - you will find the both by clicking the 'forum index' tab on the top left of this page. Scroll down the listed countries then double click on teh name of the country which will take you into that forum. Just pop into both and say hi and ask all those questions that keep coming to mind as our posters are great at sharing useful advice and tips.

In the meantime all the very best woth your plans

Dread - x
