Taxation

Kentingtons’ provide a variety of tax and financial advice services to private individuals who either live in France or who are in the process of moving to France. We provide taxation advice to our clients covering areas such as capital gains tax, property wealth tax, income tax, inheritance tax, succession law and investment advice.

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.

Income Tax

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

Inheritance tax in France covers taxation on life and death, so there is no separate “gift tax” as in the UK.

Succession Law

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.

Investment Advice

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.
