The CB form now includes a tick box to say you do not want to be paid Child Benefit but you wish to protect your state pension.
You can :-)
I had the same query a couple of months ago:
and received confirmation yesterday that details have now been transferred with no further implication.
Would this article be relevant?
Apologies if I misunderstand this however I think the interest should be calculated on the whole balance.
Also I do not think a debit to the DLA constitutes payment.
It seems the silly HMRC calculator is still using 2.75% .
Thanks Lion that's reassuring.
There has been a ECJ ruling that theses charges shouldn't be applied in the first instance. However the individual needs to send a letter to the French authorities to have the charges refunded. I have a model letter (in French) but I haven't yet the practical experience of getting a refund. Pm me for more info.
Thanks Ruddle. They think the company will be acquired and are willing to take the risk so as to avoid an income tax charge and NIC (47% + er NIC) further down the line; and pay CGT rate instead.
