Property Wealth Tax
‘Impôts sur le fortune immobilière’ (IFI) is an evolution of wealth tax, which was one of the largest obstacles to moving to France for many people with significant assets.
Capital Gains Tax
Capital Gains Tax, on the sale of quoted shares or collective investments, is a separate tax regime.
Most people pay less income tax or “impôts sur le revenu” in France than they would as resident of the UK. This is not an outrageous claim but a statement of fact.
Inheritance tax in France covers taxation on life and death, so there is no separate “gift tax” as in the UK.
Succession law is probably one of the most contentious rules for the British moving to France, as it seemingly infringes on our civil liberty to leave our money to whomsoever we please.
When people move to France it is common to have tax questions, however, not everyone considers the actions that they need to take with their savings and investment strategy.
