Expat Financial Advice a Must When Returning to UK

Unfortunately, HMRC has so far failed to provide any useful clarity on the issue, saying only that, “The Prime Minister has announced that foreign buyers looking to buy homes in the UK will face a higher stamp duty rate. We will consult on the details in due course.”

Returning expats should be prepared and seek reliable international financial advice to guide them through the process of reintegrating to the UK. If a British citizen is planning to return to the UK, expat financial advisers can help them with strategies to reaffirm their ties to the UK in plenty of time so that they can avoid any unnecessary costs, taxes or indeed surcharges.
