Can the UK ban my parents from coming to the UK if they notice a regular pattern of coming to the UK every year (and utilizing the entire 6 months duration every time they come)? Visitor rules do not mention “6 months out of every 12”, only admittance for up to 6 months on any one visit. That pattern of visiting is not typical. If entering visa-free, the ...

Until the 12 month is over you are allowed to drive using your foreign licence. You won't need to put on 'L' plates or similar as well. However if you want to keep on driving without restrictions you have to pass the driving test before the 12 months are over. From the ask the police site: While your full licence is valid, you can drive any type of small ...

I saw nothing about that in the relevant tax treaty but it seems that in general, the whole family is taken into account to compute the quotient familial: Les personnes domiciliées fiscalement hors de France sont prises en compte pour la détermination du quotient familial. This means you can in any case use 2.5 units to compute your wife's income tax rate....

Your non-UK license remains valid, and is not voided by the issuance of a UK provisional license. You can drive a small vehicle (motorcycle or car) in the UK for up to 12 months using your non-exchangeable non-UK license. See the presentation on this UK govt webpage. Whether you can hire a car in the UK using your non-UK license will depend upon the class of ...

Since 2009, France and the UK have a double taxation treaty (https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/france-tax-treaties) So, you have to pay your yearly tax in the country you spend at least 183 days (half the year+1).

I did three test drives this weekend, and while answers 1, 2 and 3 stay as answered by Traveller, I would like to add some information to answer 4. Q4 - The big problem with non-UK driving licences is with the dealer's insurance. One dealership accepted my EU licence without a problem. I drove alone due to Covid-19 restrictions and nobody followed me. The ...

Q1 I would expect the dealer to provide you with a copy of the loan/demonstration insurance agreement. This will include eg your declaration of eligibility for the insurance such as age, valid (UK) driving licence applicable to the vehicle, penalty points/driving offence convictions etc, and the conditions of the loan eg excess payable in the event of an ...

If you move to the UK before the end of the transition period (which is now planned to coincide with the end of this year), you and your spouse will be able to register for the EU settlement scheme. It is free of charge and relatively quick and easy, and citizens of Australia and of the US (among other countries) do not need to apply for a family permit ...
