UK Property, The Happiest Countries In The World, And Life As A Transgender Expat In Canada

Moving abroad is stressful at the best of times, but when you face discrimination just for being who you are, it can be even more complicated. We’re currently running a series of articles about being a transgender expat, and this month we focused on Canada as a destination.

On the other side of the stress scale, a recent survey has revealed the happiest countries in the world. Unsurprisingly, the Nordics are at the top again. How do they do it?!Taxation is an important part of life, even if it’s not the most exciting of subjects. Take a look at our feature on capital gains tax for expats who own UK property. And on a related note: if you’re a British expat living abroad, here’s how and when you should declare your offshore assets to HMRC.

Keeping you up to date is one of the things we strive to do, so this week we’ve seen updates about expat healthcare, finance and general news around the world.

Speaking of global news… take a look at these results from the Global Wealth Migration Review 2018.

One current trend in migration is a large number of EU expats leaving the UK in the wake of the Brexit vote – but where are they going?

It’s not all taxation and surveys, though. Sometimes those little niggling questions are the most important: is there a playground in this city where I can take my kids? What are the bookshops like? Where do I buy my favourite cheese? If you’re still trying to decide where to move, or if you’re already an expat but you’d like some local knowledge, here’s how to use Facebook to ease your transition.
