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


by @eljaques2yr  | 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.

What features would you like to see on Nomad List?


by @levelsio7mo 6 months ago | 3 comments

Hi everyone,

I would love to hear what you'd like me to build next on Nomad List, or any other product/feature feedback ideas you have.

It's been 6+ years now but I'm in this for the long term and with the boost remote work got last year it's even more exciting to work on Nomad List than ever.

Current roadmap is here: twitter.com/levelsio/status/1363204985488572417?s=20 and pbs.twimg.com/media/EusS9PKXEAUR8xp?format=jpg&name=4096x4096

The next products/features I have planned:

- 🛂 Rebase: visa, residency and immigration services for remote workers

- 🎓Courses: learn the steps how to go remote and travel/relocate

- 🏛 Gov liaison: diplomacy services to the governments to help us lobby for nomads and for them to attract remote workers

Thanks a lot!

List of Visa/Residency Information in Table/Spreadsheet format?


by @innovatelife8mo 7 months ago | 2 comments

As part of signing up for this website I was hoping I would come across a list of Visa and/or Residency requirements by country ideally in a table format to assist with decision making. Does anybody recommend any other websites that might present the information in this format (or Google Spreadsheet)?

Most Walkable Neighborhood / City In The World ?


by @dannybooboo8mo 7 months ago | 1 comment

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.

Any nomads in Arizona, US?


in Netherlands by @info1328mo 7 months ago | 4 comments

Hi guys,

After the Netherlands, the Bay Area, Colorado and being on the van life for 8 months, I am now in Sedona, AZ with a few other digital nomads. We are sharing a home here and are wondering if there are more like minded people in the area.

We do a bunch of hikes and campouts in the northern of Arizona. If you would like to connect with us, please do so :)

Are there any tax issues I have to be aware of?


in Germany by @clara8mo 7 months ago | 0 comments

Hi everybody. I live and work in Germany and want to go to Canary Islands for 6 months to work from there. I'm going to keep my current job, just change the "home" in the home office part of things. Are there any tax issues I have to be aware of? I was reading about becoming a residence after 183 days, thus having to pay taxes there plus my employer having to register there. Does anybody know how it works exactly? Thanks a lot!

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 @danielgenser6yr 5 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?
