  1. Taxes on capital gains from stocks

    I'm not able to delete my post above, so please ignore it instead. I think that relates to US stocks. 
  2. Taxes on capital gains from stocks

    Just googled this out of curiosity and apparantly: Generally, any profit you make on the sale of a stock is taxable at either 0%, 15% or 20% if you held the shares for more than a year or at your ordinary tax rate if you held the shares for less than a year. Also, any dividends you receive from a stock are usually taxable.   I'm guessing you held your shares for less than a year?
  3. The last minute Brexit deal

    Thanks for the link Gary. I am particularly interested in the  "freedom of movement of capital" - since that was  "fourth pillar" of the EU. I was worried that the Brexit deal could affect how much cash can be brought into Germany... as far as I can tell, based on your link - that does not seem to have been affected.    
  4. Hi all,    I have received a letter from my UK bank advising that if I am not a UK resident they will close my UK bank account. They sent the letter to Germany as I had updated my accounts ages ago with my German address. Having googled the matter, it appears that there is confusion on this topic and some banks are being more lenient than others. I was just wondering if Toytowners had any advice for me, perhaps there is a way around this?
