Hi Longun,

Sorry for not replying, I've been away.

Please give the office a call 01280 821020 to find out what that is about. This is one of the problems with HMRC changing tax codes based on what happened 2 or 3 years ago. We keep high lighting this and we don't always know when codes have been changed until clients tell us.

Do please call.

Bettertax

I have dual citizenship (UK/US), I live and work in the UK. I am planning to move to the US, thus allowing me to claim a few tax benefits by filing a P85 form. However, there are 2 CGT tax issues as I own a London property, which is currently my PPR and therefore exempt from the 18% CGT when I come to sell it in 5-10 years and also a string of investments in various funds.

As you can probably tell, in my mind, I am trying to compromise between having to pay for CGT on my residence or CGT on my investments on the assumption that HMRC will have a problem with my claiming tax free on both things if I move abroad?! Can I have the cake and eat it? Or will I be liable for CGT somewhere either way? As in would I be foregoing my PPR privilages if I file a P85? and does a P85 actually help me claim tax free returns on my investments? Also, being abroad with these investments in the UK would I need to file some sort of annual tax return?

Bobbysupascaff,

Thanks for that and I will pass your comments on to Steve :).

JPLEWIS,

We're overhauling our fee structure for this coming tax year actually. Sole trader, do you mean self employed and CIS? Our fee is £99 + 15% of the tax refund we’re able to obtain for each tax year we complete. Fee is subject to VAT.

If you are a Self-Employed professional who doesn’t pay tax at source under CIS, our fee is £199 for each tax year we complete. Fee is subject to VAT.

Phil181,

Everyone should have cake and eat it - wish I had some now in fact!
