Since the 2015 pension freedoms, there has been more choice than ever for how Britons can access their retirement benefits. While this is generally welcome, it has been accompanied by increasingly sophisticated pension fraud – and even the financially savvy are being caught out.

Spain cannot discriminate against non-EU/EEA countries for succession and gift tax

If you have family living outside the EU/EEA, they should no longer have to suffer higher taxes imposed under the state rules for Spanish succession and gift tax.  This is very welcome news for UK nationals with Brexit imminent.

Planning a tax-efficient move to Spain
Friday, 23 August 2019

If you have been dreaming about living full time in Spain but haven’t yet, what is stopping you? While many people need to wait until retirement, for others it may be the fear of foreign taxes, or just weighing up the pros and cons of such a big life change. And, of course, ongoing Brexit uncertainty has muddied the waters for would-be expatriates.  

Interestingly, the current unsettled political situation in the UK, triggered by Brexit frustration, is the very reason some Britons are considering leaving to become tax resident elsewhere. A new UK government, of any denomination, is likely to introduce changes when taking over the nation’s purse strings. There is speculation, for instance, that higher earners or those holding valuable assets could be hit with more punitive taxes following a general election. This could be through higher income or capital gains taxes, pension reform, or tightening of the inheritance tax regime to capture more revenue. Some are even touting the possibility of a UK wealth tax.

Cross-border tax planning for today’s global transparency
Monday, 22 July 2019

Over one hundred countries are now automatically sharing financial information on taxpayers to expose tax evasion – and tax authorities are starting to benefit.

Tax transparency has recently been revolutionised by the global automatic exchange of information under the ‘Common Reporting Standard’ (CRS). Now in full flow, this initiative enables tax offices across the world to keep track of taxpayers’ offshore assets and accounts.
