How do you deal with “proof of address” for banking and investing and other random stuff?


by @eljaques | 1yr  | 6 comments

How do you guys deal with the dreaded “proof of address” for banking and investing and other random stuff?

I don’ have the option to have a family member do this for me, sadly (not wanting to use that country as residence for tax implications).

This has to be a pretty regular problem for most who aren’t doing the old timey “live in one place and pay bills there forever” thing. Suggestions? Services? Hacks? Workarounds?

Revolut allows a 3 month working space rental too. They have details on the help page.

i’ve had the same problem (and still do have it in terms of banking itself) and solved it by asking someone to register a landline phone in my name by making the power of attorney through my country’s embassy and sending it by post to that person.
In terms of banking itself - just using cryptos and cashing it out according to the currently available options. if no bank account - still can do it through p2p exchange. This way no bank can mess up with your finances anyhow significantly.

I’m still tax resident in my home country, all my bank accounts are there too, I’ve lived in several other countries. Are you tax resident somewhere? Why not just bank there?

More complicated than that. Traveling to tax residency a pain, need banking and brokerage accounts in various places, tax reporting & liabilities, etc.

Have considered all the obvious “simple” ideas already like “just use relatives” or “just bank at home” - which aren’t options for me.

You can still use a relative for banking etc. Tax residency is more complicated. I am.currently in Taiwan but have bank accounts in the UK. That by itself doesn’t trigger UK tax residency.

Most Walkable Neighborhood / City In The World ?

 

by @dannybooboo | 3d 3 days ago | 0 comments

I love living in walkable areas of town. I can always find them. But now I'm wondering where in the world are the most walkable places? I'm imagining walk streets (no cars), zoning allowing both business and residential, parks or beaches ,etc.

Is anyone travelling right now?


by @viktor | 11d 11 days ago | 3 comments

Winter is coming and I’m feeling the ache of travelling after being stuck in the same place since the Pandemic started. Wondering if anyone is travelling right now? If so, where are you currently located and how is the situation where you are?

Anyone up to explore some city which is kinda virus safe?


in Bangkok, Thailand by @germanrobert | 11d 11 days ago | 2 comments

Hello World!

I'm an experienced Digital Nomad and after being in Lockdown in Bangkok and Germany for one year I would like to team up with someone to visit a new place. Or just doing some exchange about what destinations would be interesting currently.

I take the virus seriously and still I think we can still be able to take our life in our own hands. So I'm aiming for cities/countries which are not in full lockdown, are not too complicated about immigration (I'm looking at you Thailand, your state quarantine costs like 1k USD and is basically a prison) and is also rather safe regarding the virus. I tend to stick for rather big cities and like culture. I'm not a beach or nature person. I'm pretty flexible about the money topic.

How to find accomodation in Las Palmas, Canary Islands


in Las Palmas, Spain by @philippg | 20d 20 days ago | 2 comments

Hi, we are trying to find a house to rent for 2-3 persons near Las Palmas for 4-5 months at the moment and it seems to be almost impossible except through Airbnb which is super expensive. Any advises or local contacts?

If you're American but live in Guatemala, do you still count as American for travel purposes?


in Guatemala by @chasindreams | 26d 26 days ago | 0 comments

What I mean is, for example, since most of the EU has banned Americans, if I live in Guatemala and will be traveling FROM Guatemala to the EU, could I get in? Or does the ban count for all Americans regardless of where they live?

Ukraine Residency


in Ukraine by @reticle | 1mo 1 month ago | 1 comment

I have a slightly above average US income which I can work remotely from paired with a $1000 a month income stream and more than enough to purchase a middle end Flat in Ukraine. Does anyone with knowledge of this process have any advice to acquire a reliable way to stay in the country?

Hello, I’m sure this has been asked before but I
couldn’t find anything, I am from the UK I am trying to find the best way to do banking and finance whilst being a DN. primarily where i should FILE taxes, I’ve found a lot of threads about paying tax but not about filing. for example i am considering getting a German bank account. I won’t be living in Germany at all. do i need to file taxes there since I have a bank account there.

How can you avoid foreign banking, ATM, and transaction fees?

 

by @danielgenser | 5yr 4 years ago | 52 comments

What’s the latest on how to avoid ATM/bank/foreign transaction fees? How do you keep track of money spent when you’re never quite sure of the exact exchange rate? I normally use YNAB to keep on top of my budget here at home, but I’m dreading keeping tabs on all the minute foreign transaction adjustments abroad…

I’m looking at this to check out some of the banking options: http://thepointsguy.com/2014/02/the-top-11-checking-accounts-for-avoiding-foreign-atm-fees/

Have you used any of these?
