The French tax and legal system is very different from that in the UK and many other countries. Many people who have moved to France or are planning to do so find it complex and expensive from a tax perspective. What they often do not realise, however, is that they may be able to take advantage of French tax compliant opportunities to protect their assets from the various French taxes, so much so that they could end up paying less tax in France than in countries like the UK.
As with any wealth and estate planning, the starting point is to understand what the rules are and then establish if there are ways to minimise the personal impact of them and if you can use the rules to your benefit.
For example, Blevins Franks will highlight the unexpected impact taxes like social charges, wealth tax and succession tax can have on your wealth and estate, and explore the possibilities of mitigating these taxes for you.
