THE FRY GROUP WEBINAR: RETURNING TO THE UK? TAX ESSENTIALS YOU NEED TO KNOW
For most expats there comes a point when it’s time to decide – do we stay overseas or head back to the UK? And when’s the right time to make that move?
The UK tax system is notoriously complex and can be overwhelming when thrown into the mix of an international move. However, by carefully managing the timing of your return and planning ahead you should find yourself in the most tax-efficient position, helping make your transition back as smooth as possible.
In this webinar, Peter Webb, Head of Tax Advisory at The Fry Group, will explain the important tax and financial considerations returning expats should be aware of. He’ll also clarify why good planning is necessary and detail how to limit your exposure to UK tax and protect your wealth.
What can I learn from this webinar?
- Key considerations before moving back to the UK
- The trigger points that make you UK resident for tax purposes
- Common mistakes that can expose you to tax – even before you arrive home
- Some tax-efficient investment strategies you can adopt once in the UK
There will be plenty of opportunity for Q&A. Please submit any questions you would like answered to email@example.com
Kindly register for your preferred session for the webinar below. You will then be sent a confirmation email with all the webinar details.
Thursday 27 April 2023
Please feel free to forward this invitation to friends, colleagues or family members if you feel it would be of interest to them. We look forward to you joining the webinar.
