Why advise UK revenue when leaving UK?


Recommended Posts

I see a lot of comments from UK expats concerning freezing of pensions once inland revenue know they have left UK. I know Inland Revenue website states you must inform them when you leave but why. I currently have UK company pensions on which I pay, and am happy to pay, UK tax and am not due to receive state pension for another 10 years for which I have paid full NI contributions, 35 years. Can anyone tell me why I should let them know I am now living in Thailand based on Thai retirement visa i.e. not working and implications of not telling them? Any advise will be appreciated.

if you do not inform the state pensions about your being out of the uk beyond the allowed periods of time in their eyes you are misclaiming ie breaking uk law ok we all know that . Iif you get cau

from experience tell the pensions dept everyday they offer more incentives to people to grass you up here and in the uk any amount of people willing to take the queens shilling if you are

The new residency laws are here: http://www.cambridgetax.co.uk/ctp/New_Residence_Rules.html I was just wondering under which law you were caught, but not important.

i tell you this from direct experience they caught me as a purely random check by stopping my pension and waiting for me to call

my mistake to call from abroad saying i was on holiday they now had my tele number ok reinstated my allowance

as soon as the allotted time of absence from the uk expired they called again and bingo red handed

they advised me that further increases would be stopped

And the allotted time was what, six months?

if you are caught you will have to repay the excess with no time limit ie you are getting a loan which increases

tot it up yourself added to this any company or individual that knowingly forwards state pension or benefit

mail is also breaking the law

if any one would like to hear how i got busted please pm me TV would not allow long messages

Many thanks Gerry 123. However as I will not be claiming UK state pension for another 10 years not sure how this will affect me. It is possible that I may return to UK ahead of the state retirement age anyway. Just wondered if there is any point advising them when just currently receiving company pensions that I pay UK tax on. Guess I was just concerned re recent comments advising UK tax allowance, currently 10k per year, may be withdrawn from expats .

i am not too sure of the exact time allowance i found it difficult to totally understand the exact formula they go by yes maybe 6 months but not in one hit locate their website for up todate info be careful use a vpn

sure new beginnings in your case i am not sure i did inform them when i left the uk but just to get a 3000 pound rebate

but of course now the mention of the tax allowance being taken away i will fall into the taxable income derived in the uk system

although when i made the move they said i would not recieve any claims or documentation again i cross my fingers on that one

may i get lucky and slip through the net after all it wouldn't be the first time they have made a miscalculation

Now most of the above ,the doomsters, know nothing,just crap pours forth.

The OAP is an entitlement ,not a benefit, if and a big IF,they may suspect anything and believe me ,they are not interested in OAP,they will send a letter asking if you are in or out,you can say you are out and they will ask how long? reply 2 months,but coming back. They do not know where you are in the world

Do not get involved with the bloody stupid doomsters they know nothing, ignore them British embassy could not get a head count on Brits in Thailand as no one owned up,Thai immigration knows,but will not give details

i did not say it was a benefit i hoped i made it clear that they were different as to the rest or your comment you are talking out of your backside
