Thanks Speeds I've been waiting for the actual FX rate. Still rather confused why it took them 2.5 weeks to publish it since it being set on the Record Date [18-Nov]. Perhaps shareholder enquiries reminded them it wasn't declared yet...

Cheers.Here,s to the LRE share price getting back to £7 plus.Also do not want a take over.I like the 10% dividend to much.No wonder Neil Woodford has LRE in his Portfolio.

On the 1-minute interval chart Yahoo.co.uk has: Open: 1.2412 Close [10pm/UK]: 1.2345 with Bid: 1.2345 Ask: 1.2349 Day's Range: 1.2299 - 1.2436 [High @ 11.12am, Low @ 3.57pm] At noon it shows: 1.2421 [mid-price], neatly in between your 1.2420 and my earlier^ 1.24215 https://uk.finance.yahoo.com/charts?s=GBPUSD=X#symbol=GBPUSD=X;range=1d [data with this granularity appears to only be retrievable until the market re-opens, so by Monday I don't think the link will be of help]. I'm looking with interest to seeing how this stacks up against the announced rate. Then hopefully in future on the R/D we can source a reliable working estimate on the day. 1000th 'landmark' post?, get you a virtual beer for that hehe...

I would be happy with 60p,so anything over that is good.GBP peaked at 1.2429 at 11.10am.At Noon it was 1.2414,The day low was 1.2305 at 15.50.but finished the day at GBP/USD 1.2347.So we will get roughly the day,s peak rate,on the conversation around 1.2420 as you correctly quoted.It will be Interesting to see what rate we get.Do I win anything for being the 1,000 poster on LRE. Ha Ha Ha

I could check my interactive brokers a/c but I've no doubt they 'front-end' retail quotes vs the baseline/wholesale rates. Maybe something of interest will arise from it... as mentioned when I've previously just taken one rate from one source it's not been particularly close to the actual later applied.

If you want a quality vote of confidence, this might be it: Neil Woodford in his monthly fund newsletter: 'Elsewhere in terms of portfolio activity, Roche was sold from the portfolio in the ongoing fight for capital, and we increased positions in several companies including Capita, Provident Financial, Lancashire and Paypoint.'

FX rate for the latest div at noon [UK] tomorrow. If I'm online I'll try and note an estimate at the time. FWIW at time of writing Cable is 1.2450

CWA, I don't know if it helps but Stockopedia lists the stock as eligible for an ISA and a SIPP. hxxp://www.stockopedia.com/share-prices/lancashire-holdings-LON:LRE/

Gary My understanding is dividends on UK shares held in UK, UK bank interest, rental income on housing in UK etc remain taxable to non-residents. Capital gain on shares is not taxable. Re tax in host country- I don't know about Thailand but many Countries eg. Indonesia and Malaysia tax world-wide income and require returns to declare this. Any tax already paid in UK is allowed for if a Double Taxation Agreement exits (most Countries have DTA's with UK) You can put investments including direct share holdings into overseas structures which takes div. out of the HMRC tax regime. Some info in helpsheet in link below giving guidance on how to complete SA forms - frnakly like many HMRC helpsheets - raise more questions than answers. I have been non-resident for many years and complete returns using commercial software as non-residents cannot use the on-line SA system directly, I use Andica and find it pretty easy to use once clear on what to enter- after the first year it gets pretty routine. Paper returns can be submitted. I would think approaching HMRC to explain and request guidance might help avoid any problems later, particularly if you end up returning to UK. Getting tax advice from an expert could well resolve with HMRC and manage tax- but watch out for the Financial Advisors in Asia offering tax advice role, there are some good ones but a lot of real sharks. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/non-residents-and-investment-income-hs300-self-assessment-helpsheet

Did you change your correspondence address with them [IR], if so that might be a simple route to proof in lieu of a P85? Otherwise just provide evidence, passport stamps, TH residency cards from when you arrived, bank statements etc. IR-UK threaten to bite very hard but IME are receptive if you ask for help and try and sort out prior misunderstandings etc. {let's be honest the IR-UK tax code is labyrinthine, and they know it]. Strange they never followed up on their 'fine'. IME once they know how to reach they they are relentless. [perhaps you moved?]. Plead ignorance of their requirements and a desire to straighten things out. IME they are then less hostile and more co-operative and although an unenviable position [going back years] you can work through it. [I use a tax-prep software app called Tax-calc, which gets updated annually. If you aren't used to UK tax returns it might make your life a heck of a lot simpler!] ps/OT - I left the UK in March '08... almost the same time as you...

Thanks for that guys.I left the UK in Aug 2008.So should be ok.But I did not notify HMRC on leaving.HMRC did though send me three £200 fine notice,s last year for not sending them a 2009 Tax Return.But I just ignored and binned it.Had nothing since !!!

I'm aligned with Extrader's opinion^ If you're non-resident why are you liable for UK tax on divis? Did you complete the HMRC form to register that you were leaving the UK? https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/income-tax-leaving-the-uk-getting-your-tax-right-p85 I completed one of those when I last exited the UK about 8 years ago now. It serves as completely bullet-proof evidence you're non-res. And similarly bullet-proof, if needed, grounds to stop UK financial companies seeking to deduct tax at source, and then having the PITA of having to file tax-returns to reclaim it. Also check whether the Thai authorities apply local taxes to foreign earned income. For example, I know for a fact Singapore do not [having lived there].

Hi Garycook, If you're non-resident for tax purposes, you're non-resident for income tax purposes ! To be out of the Capital Gains tax net, you need to be 5 clear tax years outside the UK before you can consider yourself safe. You might want to set aside £1,000 or so of your £25 K dividend income to get professional confirmation of this point...... ATB

your tax should depend on the country you live in, not the UK.
