DAUK Tax Committee Presents: Expat Tax 101


Join Democrats Abroad UK (DAUK) for this special hybrid (in-person and online) event to discuss the basics of US tax filing requirements for Americans living in the UK. The aim of this event is to educate you on your basic tax filing obligations and commonly asked tax questions such as:

  • When is the tax filing deadline for Americans living outside the US?
  • How much do I need to earn to file?
  • Can I open a UK pension as a US citizen?
  • Do I have to pay capital gains tax to the IRS when I sell my UK home?
  • How much do I have to earn in order to be double taxed?
  • Do I get double taxed if I'm self-employed in the UK or have a UK Limited Company?

This event is for you if:

  • you just moved to the UK from the US and you're unsure of your tax obligations
  • you haven't filed for decades
  • you're scared to face your tax filing obligation or don't know what questions to ask to get started
  • you've filed for years but you're not sure if you're doing it right, or
  • you've filed every year but you've wanted a straightforward answer for a specific issue

The fine print:

  • No refunds are available.
  • In-person seating is limited in capacity so please only purchase an in-person ticket if you are able to attend. Otherwise, please purchase a webinar ticket.
  • If you have booked an in-person ticket and can no longer attend in-person, you can transfer your ticket to attend online or to receive the recording. In this case, please email [email protected] to request a ticket transfer. You must do this at least 24 hours in advance as in-person seating capacity is limited and there could be a waitlist for in-person tickets.
  • For those unable to attend in person or online on this date, you have the option to purchase an on-demand ticket to view the recording after the event takes place.
  • For those attending in person, no food or drink will be served. You are welcome to bring a bottle of water for your own personal consumption. Please eat before arriving. Food is not allowed inside the lecture theatre.
  • We can't guarantee we will be able to answer all questions submitted before, during, or after the event, but we will try to answer as many questions as possible. Speakers are encouraged to network with attendees after the panel discussion but, we can't guarantee you will be able to meet with specific speakers.
