Welcome to my Blog, I hope you enjoy it and find the contents useful. As a first post, I thought it best to provide a few details about myself and my experience in the UK and in France:
Are you one of the many people who have dreamt of retiring to France?
Not everyone achieves this dream, so if you do, or have already, you are one of the lucky ones. France has so much to offer; the culture, cuisine, beautiful countryside, historic towns and vibrant cities… you will want to make the most of it all and will hopefully have plenty of time to do so over your retirement years.
If you are planning to move to France, you need to be aware of a completely new tax to which you could be liable – wealth tax. This is not a tax on income or gains, but rather on the value of your assets.
This may also affect you if you are non-resident but have property in France, depending on its value.
