In our global world, many UK individuals choose to live and work overseas for a period of months or years. The decision to move abroad has many implications, affecting finances, housing, family matters and much more. In this extensive new volume, two ex-Big 4 tax specialists, themselves British expats, share a wealth of personal and professional experience.

The book guides readers through all stages, from preparing to travel, to arriving in the overseas country, looking after local tax and financial matters, financial and pension planning, and eventual return to the UK. See full contents below. The focus for this second edition is on the more technical areas of interest to accountants and other professional advisers; the areas of more relevance for individual expats and their employers have been moved to our new volume, Living and Working Abroad.< New material for this second edition includes:

  • expanded coverage of domicile;
  • more on the residence nil rate band;
  • expanded and updated coverage of CGT for non-residents;
  • additional commentary on double tax treaties;
  • Covid-19 practicalities and regulations;
  • Crown employees;
  • a new extended case study on international succession.
