Capital Gains Tax
Capital Gains Tax on the disposal of shares, second properties and most other investments are normally taxable in France.
Income Tax
Most people pay less income tax or “impôts sur le revenu” in France than they would in the UK with correct financial planning. 
Inheritance Tax
Inheritance tax in France covers taxation on death and much can be done to reduce this tax for the next generation.
Succession Law
Succession law can to some go against their personal wishes for what happens to their estate on death. There are often solutions available to help make your personal choices count.
Liquid Assets
Money kept in the bank is in general earning less than inflation so losing value over time. For many, these funds are in the wrong currency, taxable and do not help with inheritance planning. There may be better solutions.
Property Wealth Tax
‘Impôts sur la fortune immobilière’ (IFI) relates to immovable property assets held anywhere in the world as a French resident.
