Hey fellas,
Does anyone know a good tax advisor based in Ireland? I'm looking for someone who has experience with digital nomads and preferably can do video meeting. If video meeting is not an option I would rather meet someone based in Ireland.
hidden for non-members2mo
So with HK in a rather interesting situation does anyone have recommendations for agencies creating businesses and accounts there? Where else would anyone else recommend setting up a corp for low tax rates as well?
hidden for non-members2mo
If you find one let me know, I'd be curious to talk to someone also

I've reached out to a tax firm that does consulting and filing for Canadians abroad. Their prices seem to be around $450CAD for a 1hr consultation, and start at $750-950CAD per year for tax filings. Just wanted to sanity check if these prices appear in the ballpark of what to expect for tax help for digital nomads? I understand most of these are case-by-case, there's probably a wide range of tax situations that may make it worth it, but just looking for others' experiences.
hidden for non-members1mo
My _assumption_ currently is that I will be considered a Canadian resident while traveling, and will be filing taxes only to Canada (3 months or less on each stay while working for remote companies, not local companies). Is a $450CAD one hour consultation an expected cost to sort some of those assumptions out?
hidden for non-members1mo
jesus christ!
in Spain is 60€ per month or a one time 60€ fee for filing
hidden for non-members1mo
vqksdpzqgi that's too much.. i mean there's nothing special about working remotely while traveling.. generally you'd be traveling as a tourist only
hidden for non-members1mo
That's what I felt as well. I'll make sure to shop around a bit more. If anyone has any Canadian accounts you trust for this let me know, obviously I don't expect you to share the rates they give you, but an option you've been happy with will help :)
hidden for non-members1mo
I have traumatic experiences with accountants 😛
hidden for non-members1mo
uqmwfglhsn i guess i'm curious if you need an accountant?
hidden for non-members1mo
I may not. But I'd like to talk to one to go through my situation to know what my obligations would be. See if my assumptions above are really correct, etc…
hidden for non-members1mo
distdojdbp there's something called three flag theory or perpetual traveller theory.. idea is one flag is your country of citizenship , one flag is your country of residence, and one flag is your country of income.. so for example as a canadian it's entirely possible to become a resident of thailand, while working remotely for a US company.. and theoretically not really pay taxes to anyone (maybe a slight amount on a certain amount you bring into thailand, while leaving the rest in external banks - like a singapore bank/company)
hidden for non-members1mo
there is an accountant that is recommended in this community, forget the name
hidden for non-members1mo
I have heard about that, and also that as a Canadian citizen, unless I've permanently moved away to a country that has a tax treaty, or have permanently moved away to a country without a tax treaty and have not swept up every last bit of dust I left behind in Canada, they will come after me for my taxes 😛
hidden for non-members1mo
As I do plan to go back to Canada after a year or so, I find the cheeky no-tax approach a bit risky
hidden for non-members1mo
yeah it takes a year to break away from canada anyways so not feasible unless you'd be away long term
hidden for non-members1mo
My situation is a little more complex in that I've actually been away from Canada for 3 years in the UK. So I've been a UK resident for 3 years. My assumption is that once I "quit" my day job here and hit the road, my tax residency as of the day I leave the UK will become Canada (unless I do something cheeky :) )
hidden for non-members1mo
I'm not an expert but have dealt with this for quite a bit. Two most important rules:
- try to get the tax status in your home country clear. In some cases you can pay income tax one year somewhere else to show them that you signed off. Just make sure you are not taxable in your home country any more
- whereever you travel make sure to not get taxable there, or, if you do, get local help.

You don't necessarily need an "international tax accountant" help if you got those two things right. However, it can help to have someone to talk to who has a good overview, and could maybe help you set up a residency if you might need it. It mostly depends on your citizenship
hidden for non-members1mo
Getting the 1st done is tricky usually
hidden for non-members1mo
For Latvia it's something like Change your residence outside LV, do not stay in LV for longer than 3 or 6 months, go to the tax people with your tax papers (translated) from your fiscal residence country and have them approve that you've moved your fiscal residence.
hidden for non-members1mo
Then there is also the process of getting your fiscal residence paperwork which can be a yearly thing.
hidden for non-members1mo
I'm going to be digital nomading with the plan of going back to Canada after about a year. I'd also like to keep all my investments, bank accounts etc… there as it would be a lot of work to find other homes for them all. I'm not looking to dodge tax really, just to travel for a year while working.
hidden for non-members1mo
Perhaps an accountant could convince me otherwise, though :)
hidden for non-members1mo
vwemdoebkc uh, UK's tax resident status, once you become one, is a bit more complex than "I leave and don't come back for more than 6months in a year". It is not simple, but at least there are fairly well-defined rules. If you have trouble going to sleep www.gov.uk/government/publications/rdr3-statutory-residence-test-srt/guidance-note-for-statutory-residence-test-srt-rdr3
hidden for non-members1mo
Thanks for the article. Yea residency tests are complicated, Canada's (my home country) is too. I won't pass the SRT though, as I will won't have any place to live in the UK, will not be able to enter the UK or work (my visa will expire when I leave), will not have any UK source income, will not have any bank accounts, no family, driver's license, memberships etc… and I'll never have any of those things ever again.
hidden for non-members1mo
Yes, I think in this case for the new tax year you should be fine :) The tricky part will be that until the end of UK tax year you will retain tax residency in UK - unless you can show a new permanent place to show you severed ties with UK and show you're eligible for "split tax year treatment" (e.g. if you pick up full time role in another country, or if you "establish permanent home in another country") - if you become digital nomad it's more difficult to show that and then there can be that lingering tax resident status until April after you leave.
hidden for non-members1mo
I see 🤔 Thankfully it shouldn't matter much as I won't earn any income in 2020 until April. I'll make sure my UK accountant is aware of that (just starting with one to help me wrap up things on the UK side). Thanks again for letting me know!

Wondering what's the easiest residency to get in europe that would let you travel freely in the eu/schengen zone.
hidden for non-members15d
a lot of people do investor's visa in Portugal
hidden for non-members15d
through purchasing a property
hidden for non-members15d
€500,000?
hidden for non-members14d
hmmm actually Spanish non-lucrative visa might be easier? (definitely cheaper!)
hidden for non-members14d
but Spain has high taxes, on a global basis. So if keeping taxes low is priority, Spain is not a good choice.
hidden for non-members14d
So I've been trying to go through the UK statutory residence test to check whether I'll be a UK tax resident when leaving the country, and I've consulted an expert to confirm my thoughts. They went through the situation and quoted me ~£500 to do a full assessment + send over proof of what the outcome is. Having never have to do anything like this before; is this useful to pay for, and if so is this a "common" price?
hidden for non-members9d
Bulgaria isn't schengen yet afaik
hidden for non-members8d
no idea. normally you pay tax advisors hourly. having a fixed price (also a kind of low one) sounds good
