Testimonials & Client Comments

If there is one piece of advice I would offer anyone leaving Australia to work in the UK, it would be first to arrange an 'arrival' meeting with Juliet Connolly - for her invaluable taxation advice - before you do anything else.

In my case, I was on a temporary two-year assignment to Fairfax's London office but I had little knowledge about how the UK taxation system worked and absolutely no knowledge about how to structure my affairs to take advantage of various taxation relief opportunities. I somehow thought that paying tax through my employer would be sufficient and I could simply head home at the end of my secondment without filing annual tax returns.

Meeting Juliet through the Australian & New Zealand Chamber of Commerce network was a godsend. Juliet's personal one-on-one approach is considerably less daunting than dealing with large accountancy firms. My concerns about compliance issues and UK tax returns disappeared and Juliet made me aware of my entitlements under detatched duty relief. It was a wonderful suprise to find that many of my living expenses were deductible, and far from owing the taxman, he owes me!

So I thoroughly recommend Juliet Connolly to Australians working in the UK. She's one of the UK's hidden treasures!

Linda Harrison, from John Fairfax in Australia

Many thanks Juliet for seeing Mum at such short notice and helping us all feel safe!

Julie Macey, Oxford whose mother was emigrating to Australia

Juliet - I just wanted to say thank you for the speed and quality of your input to the cases we have worked on together. As you know we deal mainly with corporate matters, and it is therefore very helpful to have you alongside to deal with questions on cross border personal tax issues. Together we can offer a pretty comprehensive service to businesses setting up in the UK and their expat management. I look forward to working with you again on such cases in the future.

I have been living abroad for several years and for the last year Juliet Connolly has been handling all my tax affairs in the uk

During this time she has prepared and submitted all the paperwork required by the Inland Revenue and diligently followed up with phone calls. All of this work has been carried out in a very professional and timely manner, saving me time and money.

Michael Seckington, New York USA

I would like to thank you for the professional and expedient expatriate taxation advice provided to me with respect to my secondment from Australia to the UK.

Your advice was invaluable in enabling me to effectively structure my renumeration package to take advantage of the significant expatriate taxation benefits available.

I have recommended your services to my colleagues and will continue to do so.

Marc Totaro, from National Australia Bank who was on secondment in the UK fro

I have found UK Expat to be most knowledgeable, professional and thorough, offering invaluable advice that has allowed me to maximize my financial status within the UK and beyond

UK Expat have been instrumental with assisting in my taxable status. Without the efforts and insight of UK Expat I would simply not be in as beneficial a financial position as I am now and will be in the future.

The most critical factor is to engage UK Expat as soon as possible, thereby ensuring you too can receive the valuable information you need for successful decision making today.

Murray Rahn, Senior Account Manager from a leading telecommunications company

I was relocated from the UK, to Egypt by my firm.

My firm gave me an allowance to hire a tax expert in the UK so that I could get some professional advice concerning my situation.

Hiring Juliet to undertake this has meant that all issues with my situation have been solved painlessly. She has given me professional and timely advice that, without, I would still be wondering which form is which.

Dealing with the UK Inland Revenue can be a daunting task (especially form a different time zone), Juliet makes it easy.

I would highly recommend her firm should you be moving abroad.
