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.
