Harrison Brook France & Online
There are so many things to think about when moving abroad. In order to manage the financial side of things without handing over large sums of money to the taxman, it is essential to obtain independent and unbiased financial advice for your tax and financial planning. Harrison Brook is a pan-European regulated financial and pensions advisor providing ongoing management and advice for all British & International expats in France and abroad, whether still at work or already retired.
Comprehensive financial advice:
Harrison Brook offers the full gamut of financial planning advice, including tax, property, international insurance, pension transfers, investment (capital growth & income) and wealth management. For those wishing to hold offshore bank accounts, we can provide the necessary information to manage assets and cash cheaply and effectively. We can also assist with the purchase of international life insurance, designed to help protect those closest to you.
Retiring and managing your pension:
If you plan to live abroad or move around during your retirement, it can be confusing and costly to manage a large number of pension pots in different countries. We offer a full retirement planning service designed to make your life easier and save you money. Harrison Brook can help you manage your UK pension transfer and ensure you are getting the best from your pension while living in France or abroad. An International Private Retirement Plan is just one solution that can help you make your pension tally with your transient lifestyle.
QROPS & SIPP Advice:
Schemes such as QROPS and SIPPs allow you to transfer and consolidate your UK pension fund into one pension structure that is easy to manage and saves you money in the long run. A QROPS or a Qualifying Recognised Overseas Pension Scheme, is best for those planning to live outside the UK for five tax years or more and not intending to return. A SIPP, or a Self Invested Personal Pension, is a great option if your intention is to spend long periods in the UK or to eventually retire there. In some cases, it may be better to keep your existing pension plans in the UK, this is the importance of getting independent cross-border financial advice.
