What expats say about our experts

The expert was very friendly, helpful and precise in answering my questions on the rules on residence and domicile, and their effects on tax status, for UK-US dual citizens like myself and my wife. I was stimulated to confirm the salient points on Gov.UK. This has allowed us to plan our future stays in the US and UK.

The Experts for Expats is a top class website. It is to be highly recommended for its clear approach to handling Capital Gains Tax returns to HMRC especially as it is probably an aspect that only rarely needs to be dealt with my most people. For this reason it is a relief to come across such a website that is very clear on what doing a proper return entails. In the first instance it sets out a framework that shows what needs to be known to complete the tax return. It does provide a tailored service. The ease of making a full and proper tax return is assured by how the site matches a particular Accountant from a team of Tax Experts to deal with the particular query. There is very useful follow up to ensure contact is made.
