Uprooting and moving abroad is something more than 100,000 Brits do each year, with Australia, America, Spain and France some of the most popular destinations. Doing so involves completing a substantial checklist of tasks, not least of which is figuring out what to do about money. How much to move, what to do about long-term savings, and the right time to move money are all considerations – with the answers depending on how long you plan to move for.

MANILA - Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) scam whistleblower Benhur Luy on Thursday said he sent government funds to US accounts of businesswoman Janet Lim Napoles, who was recently indicted in California for international and domestic money laundering. Luy made the statement during the graft trial of Napoles and former Senator Bong Revilla at the Sandiganbayan 1st Division in connection with the fund diversion scheme. Luy narrated that public funds from Revilla's PDAF supposedly went to implementing agencies while some were sent to the US. "Pinapa-telegraphic po namin sa US sa kaniyang accounts," Luy said during his testimony. (We have [the money] wired to her accounts in the US.)
