Re: Update from HMG

Out of curiosity, how did you manage to "glean" that information, altohb.

Re: Update from HMG

I am obviously completely thick. I can find no reference to the 29 November event on the Embassy Facebook page. I did find reference to a meeting on Kos on 31 October. The only reference I can find anywhere is the one I linked previously which does not give any detailed information. I did find refer...

Re: Update from HMG

Can you provide a link to that notice of the meeting, BST? I can't seem to find it. I have written an email to the Embassy so I will post any reply I receive on here.

Re: Update from HMG

I am somewhat puzzled by this latest document? It says that the latest update is 15 November 2018. Next to that it gives a link to "see all updates" . That has a link that says "show all updates" . That shows the 15 November 2018 update as "added in information about outreac...

Re: Predictions for 2019 include a Hard Brexit

I think free trade deals are better than trade barriers, because they tend to benefit consumers, BUT trade deals between countries inevitably involve winners and losers. It is why they are so hard to complete. Really each country wants to sell into the other country's market but doesn't really want ...

Re: Currency Index

...and will hold my money at the rate I agreed the exchange rate at for several months. Transferwise do not offer this as far as I know. Great for instant transfers though... I'm not quite sure what this statement means? Are you saying that you can ask Currency Index how many Euro they will give yo...

Re: Predictions for 2019 include a Hard Brexit

I have no idea what such a win-win deal would look like? Being a member of the EU offers benefits in the form of totally frictionless trade, with no tariffs and no quotas in a market of 500 million people. Those benefits come with costs in the form of obeying the rules of the EU such as budget contr...

Re: Predictions for 2019 include a Hard Brexit

What exactly could an interim PM do to "get tough with the EU"? What leverage does the UK have? What could he/she threaten? The EU has made it crystal clear that they would like to have some sort of deal that protects trade but they will not sacrifice the integrity of the EU and its instit...

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...
