This event is of interest to British expatriates living and working in Shanghai, especially for those who are looking at repatriation / have just arrived and need to understand the expat journey for when they will return.

To advise on the above from a financial perspective and tax implications, the Chamber's Financial Services Focus Group invites Tony Smith, Head of the St. James’s Place Tax and Technical Team in Asia. Tony's presentation will cover the following:

  • National Insurance Contribution Scheme and private and/or dormant pension options
  • Things to think about when you eventually repatriate back to the UK (or elsewhere)
  • UK Property Tax – how does this affect you

Tony will also answer open questions from the audience on anything tax and technical which would assist UK expatriates abroad.
