An expat's odyssey to thrive with food allergies in Luxembourg and beyond.
Hello. I am wondering if anyone knows of a bank here in Luxembourg that will allow American citizens to open an investment account. Many banks will not accept Americans (period) due to the FATCA reporting requirements. My bank (BIL) accepts Americans but only allows me only to open a Current account. And I have found in my research that the handful of banks (that I've found so far) that allow Americans to open accounts have a similar policy. I would appreciate the feedback of others that have researched this topic or have had different experiences at their own bank. Thank you. Brian

Hi all! I am 29yo single, currently working and living in London for 35k£/year gross. I have been asked from my company to relocate to Lux to simply do what I am doing already in London, just from a different office. I have been offered 55k€/year + a generous relocation package. In London I manage to save around 800£/month and in Lux, with the same lifestyle, I am accounting around 1500€/month of savings. What do you guys think? Would this be a good salary for my age and for living in Lux?

Hello. I have been living and working in Lux for almost 2 years and my husband recently joined me. He is currently looking for work but I was wondering if anyone knew of any courses (educational or fun) or activities he could do during the day time to pass the time while I'm in work, until he gets a job. We live in Limpertsberg. Thanks Catherine

I just found out about the 2008 law that allows the reclaiming of Luxembourg citizenship through a lineal ancestor. Has anyone done this that can help me get started? What are my next steps?

This may be a place to start and ask questions: They could at least direct you to the proper office. It may take some effort on your part to push them but it might be worth it to you.

We are in the process of relocating to Luxembourg from the midwest. We have two children, 8 and 10, and we are looking at ISL and St. George. Based on everything I have read, ISL is the better school for expats. Can anyone give me specific reasons why? Thanks.
didi2l replied most recently with:
I agree with the private schools for what you are looking for. You will hear about the other 2 English programs in the local schools but the challenges you will face could be quite monumental and not worth the struggle. Arriving at the beginning of high school in the English speaking, public system here is not exactly a great match for many in the American system unless you have a very self-motivated and courageous student.

My friends son with Aspergers goes to St Georges. It usually costs anywhere from €1200-1600 per MONTH. But it is supposed to be amazing!! and has speech therapists, calm spaces, dietary needs met, etc. On FB there is a Luxembourg Parents page, offers great info too.

Dana0Maria posted Registration/Taxation in Luxembourg on the Luxembourg forum:
Hello all, I am moving to Luxembourg next month. I will be working as an external consulant, which means that I need to take care of my taxation/payroll. I have been contacted by some companies which can tace care af all the paperwork (VAT,taxes,registrations). What I need to know is the self-employed solution. If I hire some consulant at the beggining to help me with all the paperwork (i forgot to mention that I do not speak french nor german!), will this be enough? It doesn t make any point to pay a company everymonth... What is the procedure? Are there any helpful links? Please share if you know anything :)
