Choosing the right financial adviser in Spain
Thursday, 20 December 2018

There are various reasons why people take financial advice: to choose suitable investments; improve income and returns; lower tax liabilities; maximise pension funds; establish an effective estate plan etc.  In essence, most of us are looking for long-term financial security and peace of mind.

What many do not realise, however, is that their choice of adviser is possibly the most important financial decision they need to make, especially if you are trusting their recommendations for wealth and assets you’ve built up over your working life. 

Whether you are looking for an adviser to provide long-term wealth management, buying a one-off investment or transferring pension funds, it is important to take the time to check their credentials.

How might the 2018/19 UK budget affect your pocket?
Wednesday, 21 November 2018

In what was the last planned budget before the Brexit due date, Chancellor Phillip Hammond insisted that “austerity is coming to an end but discipline will remain”.

Choosing to spend rather than save last year’s unexpectedly high tax revenue, he pledged to increase public spending without the usual tax hikes, claiming that 32 million people would enjoy tax cuts.

This was a landmark moment in the history of international banking and cross-border tax planning.   Although we have known this was going to happen for a few years, it still feels a little unbelievable considering it does not seem that long ago that Switzerland was insisting it would not give up its prized secrecy laws.

How to get your finances Brexit-ready
Monday, 15 October 2018

No matter how you feel about Brexit, now that we are only months away from the due date, expatriates need to prepare in a practical sense. Although there are still many unanswered questions about what Brexit will actually mean, there are steps you can take to make your financial position in Spain as secure as possible.

Reviewing your pension options in Spain in the face of Brexit
Friday, 21 September 2018

Expatriates in Spain can leave pensions in the UK, take a lump sum, transfer overseas and more, but today's options and benefits may change after Brexit.

It makes sense for British expatriates to adapt their financial planning for their life abroad. By taking advantage of opportunities available for Spanish residents, you can potentially reduce taxation and gain more flexibility than UK-based alternatives. 

Does the same apply to pensions: if you are permanently living in Spain, should you bring your UK pensions with you?
