Just wanted to share this, in case it might pertain to anyone in my circles.
 
British expats may lose tax-free personal allowance >> http://bit.ly/1rzelza  

During the UK Budget 2014 earlier this year, chancellor George Osborne announced that the UK government would open a consultation on whether “entitlement to the UK Personal Allowance should be restricted for non-residents and how this might be done”. The consultation has now been opened and will continue until 9 October 2014.
 
What do you think? Should non-residents be stripped of their right to personal tax allowance in their home country? Let us know your thoughts!

Leasing your home to a friend could be a good way to raise passive income which you can use to pay your #debts. Check out this unique financial strategy and see if its something that would work for you.
