Re: Contributions to my daughter

AGoodman - thanks for that. Yes, I realise that I could give a good deal more than £3000, as long as I undertake to live a while, but I'm in a bit of a quandary. My affairs are a bit more complicated than suggested by this question, and I really need to see an IFA. First, however, I need to prepare ...

Contributions to my daughter

I have two daughters. Let's call them Elder and Younger. Both are in their late 30's. Elder has ADHD, which has held her back a lot. She comes across as well spoken and articulate, but she has had a lot of bad luck with partners and with jobs, though she has held a steady temporary job for the past ...

I'll get onto them.

Re: Tax on money brought into the country

Thank you, Loza. I read the comment from bd6759 in much the same way you did. "Hiding money offshore" and "You ought to have paid tax on the income and gains" seems pretty accusatory to me! In fact, the money was never hidden - I regularly mentioned it to the HMRC self assessment advisers I spoke to...

Tax on money brought into the country

I sold my house in 2008 with the intention of moving abroad for my retirement. I engaged an IFA to help me get the best from the money, and he advised putting it into offshore bonds, as I would eventually be using the money outside of the UK. At that time, I was still at work, but I retired a couple...
