And the biggest mistake expats can make, according to today’s guest, is thinking they’re not a big enough 'fish' for the South African Revenue Office to bother coming after. You won’t just disappear off their radar once you leave the country.
Attorney and Financial Emigration Legal Specialist Jonty Leon is going to explain why sorting out your South African tax situation is just as important as deciding what comes with you when you move abroad.
What can you expect as a foreign teacher working in Germany? And what do you do when your school goes bankrupt? American expat John Siskar wasn’t planning to dive into an international teaching career when he went travelling six years ago. And he certainly wasn’t expecting to later find himself with an almost empty bank account. Today on the show, John shares his insights into teaching in Germany, and explains how he navigated a really difficult situation.
So what's expat life like when you've got a big family in different locations, and a job that means you need to move around, often at short notice? Listen to our latest episode to find out.
But how do longer stints abroad – when you’re working – impact your tax situation? Today on the show, Oliver Heslop joins me again. He’s the owner of GETS – Global Expatriate Tax Services, based in the UK. But he works with tax experts all over the world. He’s going to talk through some things to consider if you’re living the digital nomad life. I should point out, Oliver’s not giving any specific advice in this episode, but you can ask him directly if you have a burning question; just go to the ‘financial’ tab at expatfocus.com and then click ‘UK tax advice.’
American Ashley Bartner can tell you all about it – and she’s going to, today on the Expat Focus Podcast.
10 years ago, she and her husband Jason left the hustle and bustle of New York for a big old farmhouse in the beautiful Marche region of Italy. They’ve turned it into a very successful organic farm, inn and cooking school – called La Tavola Marche. But that’s not all - Ashley and Jason are also helping other expats lay the groundwork to realise their own dreams of ‘living the sweet life’ in Italy, after experiencing first-hand, the consequences of being unprepared.
In this episode, Melanie shares her relocation story, and provides a little insight into the Danish way of life.
It might not be exciting, but it’s necessary, and our guest in this episode is going to run through some common scenarios for UK expats.
OLIVER HESLOP is the owner of GETS – Global Expatriate Tax Services, and his company has tax specialists based in the UK, the US and Australia.
During our chat, Oliver will provide some interesting tips and examples, but it’s important to point out that what he talks about here is not meant to be specific advice – for that, you should get in touch with him or another tax advisor.
Our guests in this episode are Sharon and Gladys from Rotterdam Partners, and the Rotterdam Expat Centre. This and other centres like it in cities across the Netherlands are taking so much stress and hassle out of the life setup process for new arrivals. The ladies are going to explain how they help, and provide a few tips for those who are going to be making the move.
