What is the process for filing both my US and UK expat tax returns? Will I have to upload everything twice?
No! Your Greenback accountants will coordinate so that you don’t waste time uploading your documents twice. Both your US and your UK accountants will have access to the same secure file, so you just need to upload your documents once to one place and then we do the rest.[back to top]
How much do your UK tax services cost?
We charge $585 to complete an Individual UK Return (Self-Assessment). As always, all of the forms and schedules you should need are included. UK-specific consultations cost $150 per 30 minutes.[back to top]

- Form P11d (if relevant from your employer)
- Calendar showing dates you were outside of the UK that year
- Bank interest received in the UK that year

Can I get just my UK tax returns done with Greenback?
