You have to be careful how you do that as it can be a pain to lose the UK tax residency even if you live in another country.

I know, i'm reading all about it. I know it's 5 years out of the UK....but the way I look at it I could spend 5 years traveling, come back, sell my stuff as a tax resident of another country and still be in a better position that paying another 25% on the tax.

You can still be in the UK up to 180 days a year or so.

oh yes, I remember reading about Cellular Goods in the news, the David Beckham one right? How have you all bought into the IPO if it lists in March?

Looks like you found the answer :) I also used Primary Bid.

I have opened up a standard HL share account for the shares to appear into early March.

Not to mention typically you need to be out of the country half the year :p

The S&S ISA scheme is more than generous imo, I wouldn't have a problem with a CGT raise, particularly with all the capital gains being made off the back of loose monetary policy that is failing to help the people that most need it, and enriching those of us that don't need assistance.

I know but some of us are a bit older. We may have planned our future/retirement on a CGT level of 20%. A rise to 45% means (many) more years working and the plans are soured. Worked since I was 16, often had three jobs at a time. Paid tax my whole life, happy to pay a bit more tax on my investments.....but 45% would make me think seriously about moving on.

I had to sell my UK property and terminate all other UK sources of income before they would consider me to not be tax resident in the UK, regardless of the time I was out of the country.

Same. Bit annoying that you can't drop the shares from Primary Bid directly into the ISA wrapper on HL.

Trading212 didn't work out as they don't accept transfers due to regulatory reasons.

Does anyone know a broker who deals with pink sheet stocks, accepts transfers from another broker (HL) and also has Solarwindow listed?

Cheers

Solarwindow looks interesting but wasnt listed when I looked. What kind of efficiency can they get

Bought BP at 270 maybe 260 tomorrow, hope it swings higher medium term. Add SUPP PMG RR
Barc outdid Lloy and pay 1p a share with 4p of share buy backs this year apparently. I already sold them too pessimistic

Looks like entire reddit is broked :(

Yep.

I'm watching on Fox Business YouTube and it has live comments.

It's most entertaining. Especially when someone noticed DFV had a red bandanna wrapped around a picture of a cat in the background. The comments exploded when he said, "I like this stock". :D

Didn't he open by saying "I'm not a cat?" Was pretty funny.
