Think it best not to mention working the system on a UK address as if they twig they can demand it all back. For me peace of mind is all.

I got away with it for 10 months when they found out that i was living abroad, they did not take back the extra money (yearly increase in April) they had paid just put the weekly payments back to what it was when i left which was Dec 2014!

And the opener got away light when he says he getting stopped £40 mine will drop £65!

Misread....the payment was ceased in 2010 for anyone new but continued to be paid to those already getting it for a further 10 years (2020)

Thanks for the reply gavlar, so anyone who retired in 2013 would not have been eligible for the extra payment? I thought that was correct but I am told (second hand of course) of somebody who retired earlier this year who receives it.

There's a lot more to going dark than using a VPN. Trust me, I'm dark! I've proof tested it. I've even had people on this forum trying to ascertain who I am and where I'm posting from. No chance!

Someone with money to spend can find out who you are. Trust me.

Don't think so...

On the contrary.  UK state pensions have just been increased by about 3% or 40 pounds a year.

How did they find out? Even when you live abroad you can be technically resident according to the IR if you have 'ties' to the UK such as bank accounts,   properties,  a home address classified as your primary address even if you rent it out. You do mot have citizenship in Thailand, a proveable permanent address etc etc. Its moot.

In a previous post you stated you were in the UK. Which is the truth?

The point was that it doesn’t apply to you - and it doesn’t..

 

 

Comment on what you like - you must be bored to tears back in the UK to need to comment on things that have no relevance to you.

Actually the point was I'm a British OAP and I saw a post that drew my interest as it mentioned people such as myself. So it does apply to me.

 

In 10 years I've made around 2,300 posts yet you reckon I must be bored to tears.

 

Say no more!

You can stick your head in the sand, or a dark orifice, for all I care but I suggest you look at the HMRC 'residency' and other applicable rules about your short time 'visits' to your property etc in the UK.

 

PS;  Don't ask me to quote/find the rules for you since you seem to think you are above them anyway and so it is your problem to check them out as far as I am concerned.

We are not 'above' anybody. But under the IR rules developed in the last few years to as ascertain residence there are a multitude of variables which define you as UK resident even if you do not always live in the UK.

Nobody has money to spare on such minor issues. They rely on the kind of fear you spread. Trust me.

So, you are admitting fraud on a public forum.    That might not be your cleverest move!!   'Loose talk costs lives', a famous wartime hero once said and in this case, it might be yours!!!!!!    If you're committing fraud probably best to keep it to yourself!!!!

The war time propaganda poster you quote ( not a war time hero) was part of a set of war time posters. One was about your kind of loose talk. 'Spreading alarm and despondency'. I reiterate: IR rules define residency in a number of ways. I complete an SA form every year and explain my full circumstances. Despite living most of the time in Thailand I have sufficient ties to the UK to be classified as resident.

They asked for your 'residence' details when you provided your bank and residence details.  This is along with a statement that says if you change your residence you must inform them.

My 'Residence' is in London. But I travel abroad frequently.

Which means you are 'resident abroad' under the UK residency/Tax/Allowance rules and regs.

You are obviously not aufait with the IR rules introduced in the last 8 years.
