Expat Money: Tax For Expats

Welcome to the Expat Money Newsletter for November. We are once again focusing on the personal finance issues that matter to you as an expat, or would-be expat.

In this month’s edition we consider how double taxation and the possible need to file tax returns affect British expats.

We also look at which European country might be the best place to retire to.

I hope you enjoy this newsletter. I welcome your thoughts on other topics you would like us to cover. Or do you have your own tale to tell or question to ask about expat money? Let me know.

Feel free to forward this newsletter to anyone who you think may benefit from reading it. Just click on Forward to a friend or colleague below.
