Living and working overseas as a British expat often doesn’t mean you can simply forget about UK tax. When you leave the UK you should advise HMRC of your departure, and if you have a recurring source of income such as money from a rental property – you will need to look potentially at UK Inheritance Tax, Capital Gains Tax and Income Tax particularly if the asset portfolio is over £1 million.

For many expats this means new forms, tax returns to be completed each year with filing deadlines to be met and often the need to consider the interaction of tax systems in more than one country. Welch & Ellis can help remove the headache and ensure UK tax is one thing you don’t have to worry about.

We also offer:

  • Tax planning advice, including advice on your tax residency
  • Preparation of accounts for taxpayers who are operating their own business
  • Assistance to ensure income is properly taxed and not over-taxed
