British Expats: Tax, Financial & Immigration Solutions You Need To Know!

The British American Business Council (BABC) Northern California is organizing a special event for British Expats at the Bank of the West in San Jose, on Thursday March 26th 2015 from 6:30pm.

Whether you are new to the Bay Area or have been here a while, there are things you need to know to ensure success with your tax planning, immigration status and current and future finances. Navigating the immigration laws, establishing your credit history, understanding the taxation system, and oh, what to do with that UK pension you left behind? While these issues may seem separate, your decisions about one issue, may negatively, or positively, impact one of the other areas.

This is your chance to get your questions answered from a panel of experts in tax, immigration law, banking and UK pensions. You will also get a chance to connect with people who are in the same situation as yourself.


British Consul General

The British Consul General, Priya Guha –The British Benevolent Society enjoys a close relationship with the British Consulate General Office in San Francisco.

A letter from the British Consul General

“As the British Consul General in San Francisco, I would like to thank the British Benevolent Society (BBS) for all its valuable work in assisting British Nationals in the region.

Ever since its creation in 1858, the BBS has maintained a close working relationship with the British Consulate-General. In my time in San Francisco, I have seen at first hand the excellent work and relief that this charity can deliver.

The dedicated individuals at BBS give their time and support to assist British Nationals in distress, whether it’s in a personal crisis or during a larger-scale disaster.

Nobody ever imagines something will go wrong when they are far from home, but when the unexpected does happen and British Nationals find themselves at their most vulnerable and have exhausted all other options, BBS will be a source of support.

We are very proud to partner with the British Benevolent Society and really appreciate all its efforts in support of the UK.”
