I talked briefly with Brent England last year about our planned move back to Victoria in July of 2016. We are currently non-residents of Canada, Canadian citizens, living abroad in South Korea. We have been non-residents since August of 1989. Our current contract and visa for Korea will expire at the end of July 2016. We plan on establishing Canadian residency again at the start of August 2016.
We are interested in getting advice on whether we can purchase a car ahead of our August 2016 residency date, while still in a state of non-residency? Likewise, if an appropriate house were to come available, are we allowed to purchase it ahead of our August 2016 residency date?
We plan on using your services to file our taxes once we return to Canada. Thanks.
