Re: Currency Index

Hi, thanks. We have used Transferwise for the deposit as quicker and online but they charge a fee where's Currency Index don't... Every currency exchange company is a business. I do not know of any FX company that acts as a charity. They all charge a "fee" in one way or another. They exis...

Re: UK PASSPORTS - INTER-SCHENGEN TRAVEL

Not really. At the moment UK citizens who want to stay longer than 90 days do so under a residence permit for EU citizens issued under the conditions laid down in an EU Directive. Under that system they can stay indefinitely provided they continue to satisfy the conditions laid down in the Directive...

Re: UK PASSPORTS - INTER-SCHENGEN TRAVEL

The EU has released its press release on preparedness and contingency work in the event of a no deal scenario in the Article 50 negotiations with the United Kingdom. It links to several other documents, one on Travelling between EU-UK and one specifically on Visa Requirements . It has decided to not...

Re: Currency Index

They are an FCA regulated FX company so I can't see why there would be a problem. No idea how their rates compare because they only show a daily indicative rate on the web page and you have to contact them for a quote to discover the real rate. Personally I have used Currency Fair and many friends h...

Re: Predictions for 2019 include a Hard Brexit

But that's all fake news, Phil. No company is going to relocate any of its business from the UK. They will all be too busy expanding to meet the demands from new markets after the UK exits the EU and can do free trade deals with other countries. The UK's massive manufacturing sector will be able to ...

Re: bank account after brexit

...Premium Bonds - now there's a thought; and they are tax free! And you can buy them with a foreign address!! Bob. Premium Bond winnings are tax free if you are tax resident in the UK but not if you are tax resident in Greece. I declare any winnings on my Premium Bond holdings to the Greek tax aut...

Re: bank account after brexit

I've just given this topic some more thought and I had forgotten one important fact which makes my previous post inaccurate. In 2014 the EU issued Directive 2014/92/EU that forced each EU country to offer some form of bank account to residents of other EU countries. The requirements of the Directive...

Re: bank account after brexit

I am not sure if Brexit will have much of an effect but it could. One of the known-unknowns. The biggest causes of change in what you can and can't do are changes in the banking regulations. If you look at the terms and conditions of every UK bank I think you will find that they state that they are ...

Re: Predictions for 2019 include a Hard Brexit

Purely out of curiosity do you also have a link to any EU document(s) that say that the EU is also seeking to negotiate a "broader agreement" that will include free access to the EU by the UK service sector, including financial services, that is equivalent to the access they have under pas...

Re: Predictions for 2019 include a Hard Brexit

I don't think you can conflate "lazy reporting" with "a source not wishing to be attributed". All journalists try to cultivate sources in a wide range of organisations that they regard as significant. Sometimes those sources are willing to comment on record sometimes off record. ...

Re: Predictions for 2019 include a Hard Brexit

A large part of the financial service industries' business is done with the EU, Scooby. For example, in the case of J P Morgan it looks like about one third of their UK business is actually done with the EU. In the event of a no-deal or a deal that does not include passporting for financial services...

Re: Predictions for 2019 include a Hard Brexit

They and the other banks are doing what you would expect them to do. If they lose passporting rights to deal inside the EU from the UK, which seems the most probable outcome whatever the final deal is other than remaining in the EU, then they have to move their EU business to an EU country. The amou...

Re: Predictions for 2019 include a Hard Brexit

Sorry, Jeff, but I have to disagree with you there. Not adopting the Euro and not being in Schengen does not make the UK "only half in the EU". The UK pays its full share of the budget, is one of the biggest net contributors, has adopted every EU law and mostly enforces them quite rigorous...
