After graduating from university in the US, Sandy, a US national, found an exciting job opportunity in London, UK.
The English capital city, with its rich history, its snaking River Thames, lifestyle, economy, and thirst for development, lured Sandy to cross over The Pond.
It was too good an opportunity to miss so she packed her things up and came to the UK to live and work.
Like many of her fellow Americans, it was Sandy’s intention to stay for a couple of years, gain the experience, and move back home.
But, romance blossomed when she met Alfie, a UK national. She extended her London stay and a few years later she and Alfie were wed, and they started a beautiful family together.
Sandy and Alfie had two children, both of whom were registered as US citizens at the US Embassy in London. To ensure all was right, Sandy obtained social security numbers for them and she includes them as dependents on her tax returns.
Ever thinking of new opportunities, Alfie, a serial entrepreneur, suggested that Sandy help him form a new company.
Sandy contacted Satis Tax, as she thought there might be some US tax implications.
And she was right. Sandy would have reporting requirements in respect of her ownership in the company. Satis Tax advised Sandy and Alfie on the US and UK tax implications in respect of her ownership in the new company to minimize her US and UK tax exposure and comply with her tax filing obligations in both jurisdictions.
It was great to be able to help Sandy and Alfie with our knowledge and expertise in these matters, ensuring that they can grow their business, enjoy their family, and not break any rules around tax in either the US or the UK
