About to start my first International job. Hoping to save £1.5k GBP per month and this seems very doable on my package. But, what do you do with it? My school offer a system where they will pay part of my salary in GBP to a UK bank account. Common advice on this forum is that you should keep your UK bank account open. However, upon checking it seems that most banks will close your account if you try to update your address to a non UK one... So, do you just not tell them? Seems potentially dubious! I do have a stable UK address I can use, but I don't want to go breaking any rules. Investment accounts that I have found (Vanguard/HSBC) are only open to UK residents and even though HMRC says that I can pay in to my ISA for the remainder of the tax year my bank (and others) state they aren't willing to accept further payments if I am no longer a UK resident so not sure I'll be able to get away with that. NS&I do accept non UK investors but is there anything else? This isn't just an investment problem because I'd like to maintain my credit cards and current accounts so that when I do return I'm not an unknown if I was to, for example, seek to get a mortgage.
