FATCA is the answer.

When I moved to the U.S. 15 years ago, I kept my European stock and bond portfolio, as well as my checking account, at the local HypoVereinsbank (HVB). A few years ago I received a notification from HVB (at the time I was President of HVB Capital Management in New York) kindly notifying me that it was no longer possible for them to manage my portfolio and that they deeply regret having to close the accounts of all U.S. persons.

CityKinder Seminar How to buy Real Estate in New York USA

 

Finding and securing a rental apartment in New York City can be a challenging process. Being prepared and familiarizing yourself with New York City’s unique rental process will give you the best chance of getting an apartment.

PREPARING

The first step is to make sure you know what documents will be required. You should begin your apartment search approximately 30-40 days before you wish to move in. Once you’ve found the apartment you want, it is best to be able to act immediately, so be sure to gather the proper documentation ahead of time.

Maternity Leave – Know Your Rights

Some factors, like your position and salary, the amount of working hours per week or the size of your company will influence the time you can spend with your baby at home after giving birth. Before we get into details, let’s get the vocabulary right:

Maternity Leave is the time you get off from work in order to spend time with your newborn (or adopted) child. In most states, maternity leave is not granted for more than 6 weeks (8 weeks if you had a C-section or other complications). Other than in Germany, where the “Mutterschutz” starts 6 weeks before the expected due date, American Moms-to-be work almost until it’s time to hit the delivery room. That is – in many cases – because they do not have more than these 6 weeks off in total – and who would not want to spend that short amount of time with the newborn baby girl or boy rather than without?!
