Expat Learnings

Things I’ve learned as an American expat in the UKoGBaNI #38

The tax year in the United Kingdom runs from April 6 to April 5.

This fact in itself isn’t interesting whatsoever but what is even less interesting is that it means that American expats living in the UK (or those who have just repatriated back to the US) will do taxes – literally – all year round. For example, just a few months ago we finalized our US taxes and yesterday we received an email stating that we need to begin our UK taxes. A few weeks after we hand over hoards of documents to our tax firm for our UK taxes, we will get an email stating that we need to begin our US taxes.
