Death & Taxes! A Satisfactory & Cost Effective Solution To At Least Half This Problem.
Having used my previous online provider for the last 5 filings or so, for both personal and corporate Federal returns, I was settled in with them and reasonably happy with their services.
At least, until they opted to double their across-the-board fees.
As I also employ an accountancy firm to prepare and submit my personal and company UK accounts, there is unlikely to be appreciably more work, even when considering the recent new reporting requirements, etc. to justify such a jump. So they got dumped.
ExPat Online required an up-front prepayment. Upfront payment requirements often make me a bit nervous, as I am used to paying when the drafts have been completed for my review. You end up worrying a little bit about how motivated the provider is going to be, once he has your money.But not a real deal-breaker, as EXPATS ONLINE's overall prices were reasonable and about 40% less than aforementioned provider had quoted me for the same work.
Processing time from the upload of the bulk documentation necessary to review and submission of returns was approximately 6 weeks and acknowledgement of acceptance both 2018 Federal Return and FBARS within a week or so later.
Overall, I am quite happy with the Expat Online service and it's price point. I have had previous returns processed faster, but as long as you budget for the time element, I recommend this service provider as a cost effective solution to a rather nasty yearly chore.
Now, all I need to is solve that other nagging issue.
