Advice Wanted, Funds for UK non-residents: Could any reader share their experiences of continuing to have UK PEPs or ISAs following tax-residency outside the UK. My understanding is that one can continue to hold such assets provided that they were started before leaving. Of course, all income has to be declared to the new residency in line with double-taxation agreements.
