Tax planning is both time consuming and complicated. For expats, it’s even more complex because it involves the tax rules of an additional country.

Many expats are unaware that they may be liable to some UK taxes, even if they’ve been overseas for years.

If you’re already living or planning to move abroad, it’s essential to get specialist tax advice to ensure that your tax obligations are met on time and in the right place. Mistakes can be costly and have serious consequences.

In addition, you need to protect your wealth and income from unnecessary taxes and maximise the tax-efficient benefits each country has to offer.

Tax planning

Making sure you’re tax compliant

The French tax system is both unique and complicated, and over the last few years there have been a number of changes to the rules. That means one of your priorities must be to ensure that you are and remain tax compliant both here and if relevant, in the UK.

We’ll help you understand what can otherwise seem an incomprehensible set of rules, making sure you’re compliant or recommending any other professionals you may need to see.

Tax efficiency
Making you tax efficient is a big part of how we can help you. Whether it’s in respect of your investments, your estate, your income or pension, our aim is to make sure your assets work hard, earn more and last longer.

We’ll compare your current situation with what you want to achieve and then show you how to make it simpler and better for you. We’ll also tell you if we don’t think any changes are necessary.

Our tax expertise

Beacon Global Wealth has an in-depth knowledge of the UK tax system and those of all the countries in which we operate, as well as how those tax systems work together.

We’re specialists in cross-border, tax-compliant wealth management solutions for expats, and have an up-to-date knowledge of the latest tax regulations affecting our clients.

Our locally-based advisers and tax experts will discuss opportunities to limit tax on your savings and investments, pensions, wealth and estate in France, Spain, Portugal.

We can also advise on tax residency and offer a ‘domicile determination’ service. This helps to determine what taxes you’re liable for and where they have to be paid, including whether you’re still liable for UK inheritance tax.

How we can help

We can help you to:

  • Meet your tax obligations in both countries.
  • Ensure that you don’t end up paying more tax than you need to.
  • complete your income declarations at the right time
  • Structure your finances in the most tax-efficient way

Efficient tax planning

Knowing and minimising your tax liabilities is essential to your financial health.

Without a complete understanding of your tax position your income and assets can be subject to unnecessary taxes and in some cases you may be taxed twice. With our expert tax advice you can be sure that you meet the local tax requirements and minimise your tax liabilities both in the UK and overseas.
