London Expat Meetup, Oct 24th

Sunday, October 05, 2014 (21:23:57)
Our first ever expat meetup on Friday Oct 24th aims to bring together new and existing expats in London with a view to sharing experiences of life in the capital.

The evening begins with a free 3 course dinner as the boat makes its way along Regent's Canal towards Camden, followed by a fundraising raffle for The Samaritans. There is no charge for the canal trip, dinner and drinks but we hope all our guests will be generous in their support for such a worthwhile cause and purchase raffle tickets to the value of £25-£30.

As seating on board the boat is strictly limited we are holding a draw for most places. To apply, please fill out the form at:


Good luck and we look forward to meeting you!

The question arises as to what should be done with such an account once you give up US residency.

There are three alternatives: You can transfer it to another pension account, you can distribute the money, or you can leave it in the current account...

No Peakie Panish (Learning a New Language)

Sunday, March 11, 2012 (09:48:38)
by Expat Focus columnist, Stephanie Angulo
