Should I transfer my UK pension if I am resident in France?

If you are a tax resident in France, retired in France or thought about moving to France, you may have asked yourself “What should I do with my UK pension?”.

We have just updated our Taxation in France for Expats page with plenty of fresh information as of Jan 2021, to help keep you in the know about tax legislation in France. CLICK HERE to go to the page.

There are many things to take into account which can see seen below:

  • Am I classified as tax resident in France?
  • Do I have UK pension assets in excess of £75,000?
  • How much risk am I currently taking and how much should I ideally be taking?
  • How can I withdraw my pension in EUR if it is denominated in GBP?
  • What is my income tax liability?
  • Do I want flexibility?
  • How do I know I can trust a financial adviser and what do I look for?

If any of the above raises some questions in your own mind, then you should seek financial advice. We can help in areas such as:
