A lot of this article is not news as such, but an interesting call by the IPPR for the government to provide grants to entrepreneurs living abroad?
Interesting concept, it’s just that I can’t figure out how a budding autonomo who works and pays his taxes in Spain and is given this grant, would be of benefit to the UK coffers?
“…the report said there was a diaspora of 5.6million Britons now living aboard, who were sending billions of pounds back to the UK.”
Billions of pounds?? Really?? Most of the dwindling band of people I know who still earn euros put them into a Spanish bank account, or keep as cash to spend on living costs in Spain. Am I missing something 😕
