Tax implications of leaving UK for Canada

Didn't find your answer?

You would have though that if you had substantial assets and a high income then you would have considered the tax implications before moving country.

For starters, just looked at average earnings in both countries. Seems that these are broadly similar.

As to taxes, have not a clue.

I suppose it's worth checking which ones have the best divorce lawyers as well.

As a couple they were a waste of space from day 1. The sooner they shove off the better.
If you want a laugh look at their website - full of appalling woke management speak

As I read it, they want to better themselves (and to help empower others) - and to stop being subject to allegations of the type you make that they are a waste of space.

I find it odd that "woke" is an insult in the frothing mess of the tabloids fantasy worlds that you so enjoy Bernard. The term refers to being aware of social injustice, particularly racial injustice. That's about it. I am not sure in what warped world its an insult to suggest that you give a stuff about people who are facing injustice.

Having looked at their website, I am not sure what the objections are. It just reads like corporate PR for "brand Harry & Megan". Would you prefer your royalty if they restricted themselves to shoot peasants and sitting on beaches?

But you can't deny that the coverage might have been different had JRM still been at the helm.

From a US tax perspective having an American wife and child means that two-thirds of the family are US citizens, always subject to US tax and reporting whether residing in Canada or the UK.

Citizenship derives from the mother? The US is more progressive than I realised. (Best not tell Trump this rule.)

Interesting that you have all started a thread about my nephew and his wife and their current applications to move to Canada . *

I can confirm from my sister that my nephew intends to continue in the same line of work when he gets there, the Canadians apparently can use his firearms training and I suspect his wife will also go back to doing what she trained to do once their child is a little older.

*When I saw my sister at Christmas she mentioned that they are at the stage of having just just completed their English language skills tests

Did your nephew & wife ask permission from any remaining grandparents before making the decision?

Apparently its very bad form for two adults to plan to emigrate with specific permission from grandparents, obtained prior to mentioning these plans to anyone else. Absolutely scandalous behaviour, so I am led to believe.

On that side of the family none left though for my direct family my son is now engaged to an American girl (wedding late this year) so he probably ought to check with my wife's mother that it is okay. If they do decide to scoot over to New York to livethey will need her blessing (though current plan is his wife to be is moving here this summer, albeit spousal Visas are not the simplest things)

We are all starting to become a tad nomadic; one Nephew to Canada, one niece now working as a doctor in Australia and number one son marrying a rebellious colonist- but at least , with my nephew now moving to Canada, none of the family will be living in Glasgow.

Did they use words like glaikit, gey, kye, drookit or dreich in their application?

Hopefully, though doubt my nephew has much Scots, his wife may as she is west coast.

I had most of these words featuring in my childhood (Though not really kye ) as my mother was from Dundee (well strictly Barnhill) so from her, and I presume she acquired from her father (who was from Perth) ,we acquired our vocabulary.

If I can remember I will check my Scots Dictionary this evening to find an interesting word or two but will in the meantime leave you with drouthy (which I at least remember from Burns)

I picked "kye" up from a lady in Ayrshire.

Part of my favourite Scots joke.

10 kye in a field - which one is nearest Iraq?

Coo 8.

That is not bad.

It maybe had more west coast use. The wife of one of my cousins had a father who was a local dairy stockman and I spent a little time down in the village at the milking parlour on he farm when I was small but I just do not recall its use, whereas words like muckle etc do stick in my memory.

Certainly in Edinburgh you really don't come across much Scots these days.

We share a few words. Bairn and gallusses are common words in these parts.

Yes and Bairn is not far from the Swedish Barnen- lets face it you are all really vikings down in Yorkshire.

The other one in Swedish we spotted was Kyrka=Church while in Scotland we have Kirk

Do you also have gallus?

Either gallus ( from the gallows but going on to mean one fit for them ) derived from gallusses ( braces) or it was the other way round?

Yes, gallusses = braces. We also gave laik from the Danish lek = play. Hence laikday = day off.

And also where Lego comes from, Lego meaning, leg godt, or play well in Danish.
