  3. An apparently impossible VAT question

    Thank you so much for this. Believe me, I have asked for help both from the department with which I am working (HQ Geneva) and the German WHO, their response to consultants is singularly reluctant, if I get a response at all.    I would appreciate any help you can give.    Best to take this offline now. I am happy to set anything out that is helpful but not on a public forum, obviously.    you can use chrisatguileshill@gmail.com

  7. Reason of applying to German citizenship

    Luke's suggestion is a very good one. I might use that if needed.     Yep murphaph, I was aware of that. But as bramble mentioned, there are some exceptions for Brazil with which one can get away with keeping the Brazilian citenzship. Eg, from what I read/heard, Brazil doesn't allow the loss of citizenship in case one's applying for a second citizenship in order to excercise basic civil rights which only the citizenship can grant. I coule state voting as one of them.   (Source: https://www.dw.com/pt-br/%C3%A9-poss%C3%ADvel-perder-a-cidadania-brasileira/a-42603277 - in pt-BR. I'll leave it here as a reference in case someone bumps into the post in the future)   But again, that's still a bit fuzzy to me and I just have to find out exactly what write in the application forms as reason why I can't renounce my current citizenship (still looking into it).   Btw, thanks bramble for that link and info! I haven't seen it before. I'll take a look.
  8. What do you want, not be resident in the UK, or not to deregister from Germany?   HMRC says that if you spend most of your time in the UK, then you are resident there, and as a consequence you must pay taxes there. Perhaps there are exceptions I don't know about, but I doubt.   I also know people who leave Germany and deliberately do not do Abmeldung.    
  9. Things to ponder

    I mention my gay daughter (who has a gay wife - funny how it works out that way!) in casual conversation with people. With the TV cable person, it's 'My daughter and her wife got me the TV'; with the yard maintenance guys, it's 'My daughter and her wife planted -X- for me.' Why do I bring it up? Because the more people hear that gay folks have lives beyond sexual activity, that they have their own families and cares, the more accepting they are. They see I'm not embarrassed to have family members who bend in other directions, and they begin to realize it just isn't a big deal. I don't mean I forget my daughter and DIL are gay. They are - it's part of their identity. It's like saying to your Black coworker, 'I don't think of you as Black.' You can bet your coworker does, and that what you think is a complimentary statement is really an insulting remark.
  10. Things to ponder

    @optimista I'm gay. Ask your daughter what she wants. If talking to her about it is a problem, that's about your relationship with her and not about being gay. Also, if you tell people, you may later find out that they aren't important enough to her for her to tell and that you should have let it lie.   Furthermore,  what is there to talk about about her being gay? It's a giant so-what. Some people are gay. Ask her about the woman she's dating. Try, "Are you seeing anyone? How's it going?"
  11. Why are you happy today?

      He's very brave. He's probably making himself very unpopular, but this cracking down is what is needed to get the message home to these people.

  14. How to resign!

    I resigned a few months ago and even though I had a much longer notice period (3 months). I still gave them a few extra weeks of notice, essentially as soon as I had signed my new contract. I worked in a smaller team so not the same situation, but they definitely appreciated the extra time and gave me an excellent reference letter at the end.

      love this tune, unfortunately like many other 60's classics they've been ruined by advertisers trying to appeal to boomers.
