Banks competing for ex-pat money

Skipton International has launched an 18-month fixed-rate bond just a few weeks after Permanent Bank International produced its 18-month deal. The Skipton deal just beats Permanent on the interest rate, plus the minimum deposit required is smaller.  The new Skipton International deal is 1.75pc on a minimum of £10,000.  Permanent International’s 18-month version is 1.69pc on a minimum £20,000. 

The interest rate from Skipton International also beats the Permanent Bank International three-year rate and comes close to the Nationwide International three-year deal of 1.85pc.  It makes the current crop of one-year fixed-rate deals look less attractive. You can get 1.45pc from Nationwide International or 1.4pc from Permanent International fixed for one year; the former on a minimum investment of £50,000, the latter on £20,000. Santander also offers monthly income on its fixed-rate bonds. 

These rates can easily be beaten, and coming to Blacktower for advice could save you losing a small fortune, as independent advisers we can tailor our recommendation to suit you, we would be looking to gain between 4 and 10% depending on your circumstances.  Monthly income can be received to boost your spending power and your capital can grow at the same time.

Court of Appeal’s Expat Tax Ruling

Statue of the scales of justiceExpat financial planning clients should be aware that HM Revenue & Customs have increased powers to ensure full disclosure of financial information in order to assess tax liability.

This follows a ruling by the Court of Appeal in London* in which the Court upheld the right of HMRC to demand compliance from a UK-connected individual living in Dubai.

The case clearly indicates that UK-interested parties with cross-border financial interests must consider their UK tax liabilities as part of their wider expat financial plans.
