Mensagem: 

I want to know how to say "comprovante de residência" in English.

proof of residence

 

Would it be "residence document" or "utility bill"??

I've never heard of a "residence document".  A utility bill (bill for lights, gas, water, telephone, etc.) is a common way to prove residence. 

 

Does anybody know how to say "boleto bancário" in English?

Is it "bank payment slip"??

I think so.  Better ask someone else.  Maybe "bank deposit slip"?

 

Just one more thing. What is the verb tense that we use with "up until recently/last year/yesterday..."? Past Simple, Present Perfect, Past Perfect...?

I was Sheriff of Cochise up until last year.

Up until recently, I was a happy man.  Then I got married.

Things were fine up until yesterday.

 

I did a google on it, but I'm still none the wiser!!

Hope you can help me.

Thanks!
