Deciding to become a digital nomad comes with a myriad of questions, accompanied by nuanced answers that can save you money.
If you’re new to the digital nomad lifestyle… or even if you’ve got a few years under your belt… chances are you’ve got questions about the best countries to live in, where to register your company, how to minimize your taxes, and so on.
All pretty routine stuff for me, but it can be incredibly confusing if you’re not elbow-deep in it like I am every day.
Just to give you an idea, here are 10 of the most common questions I’ve been receiving lately:
- Where should I register my company?
- How can I open a bank account in the US without a personal visit?
- Where should I have my residency to minimize taxes?
- Is Estonian e-residency and an Estonian company a good solution?
- What is the difference between tax residency and physical residency?
- If I leave my home country and don’t have residency somewhere else, where do I pay taxes?
- Can I just not be a resident anywhere?
- How do I pay myself from my company if I am not a tax resident anywhere?
- How can I get loans for real estate if I am not a tax resident somewhere?
- If I don’t live in my home country, do I still file and pay taxes there?
“Okay, Bobby, so you get a lot of questions… but can you provide the answers?”
Well, yes, I can.
Although I limit my specific individual advice to my GWP Insiders who get unlimited 1-hour phone consultations with me.
That said, I’m in a good mood, so let me answer the last question above: “If I don’t live in my home country, do I still file and pay taxes there?”
The answer to this question is complex. For most nationalities, the answer is no. You do not have to file in your home country if you no longer live there.
But for some countries, there are specific things you must do first to properly exit the country.
And for Americans, you must still file with the United States, but there are tons of loopholes you can take advantage of to reduce or eliminate your taxes entirely.
As you can see, the answer to just this one question naturally leads to others…
For example, which countries require certain steps to be completed before exiting? And which loopholes will save you the most when filing with the U.S.?
This is just the nature of the beast. The digital nomad lifestyle is awesome, but it also requires a high degree of knowledge and expertise to navigate all the rules and regulations properly.
That, of course, is where I come in.
