Dear Drakan, Thank you so much for explaining how the tax system works and is calculated. Your explaination is so clear and straight forward, it now all makes perfect sense. I only wish my lawyer and EA could have explained it this way, then I would not have felt as if I where going round in circles.
I hope that Mark will keep your reply on file, so that anyone else who comes forward in a similar confused state, will have the benefit of such a great and simplistic explanation.
I thank you Drakan, from the bottom of my heart for taking the time to offer help and advice to myself and others on this site.
Another question for Mark, if I may, on your reply, you said that residencia renewal could be achieved in 2 weeks !!! Have you managed to achieve this yourself in such a short timescale? as I am still being led to believe it will take many months, maybe, possibly up to a year !!
Any tips to cut this time down? I intend to re apply this week and any advice/insight you can offer, before I do so, would be most appreciated.
Many thanks again to both Drakan and Mark
