Brexit – In or Out

There is a lot of scaremongering going on at the moment and even more unanswered questions on how a Brexit will affect expatriates in Europe, of which some 800,000 currently live in Spain.

I am sure over the next few months this will become clearer to all.

Is in or out the right way to go? Like everything in life, everyone has their own opinions and only time will tell if the final decision was ultimately the right one. If you want your voice heard and your opinion to matter, and have lived outside the UK for less than 15 years, then you need to register to vote at https://www.gov.uk/register-to-vote.

I Have Retired; Time To Move Abroad

 

I’ve spent the last 40 years working and saving – so what’s next? Should I remain in the UK or consider pastures new? Well someone once said, “The grass is not any greener on the other side” – but what if it was?

Expats may be able to benefit from generous tax legislation in some popular retirement destinations if they decide to make use of new flexible pension rules.

Changes from April 6 will allow those, remaining in the UK and over 55, to withdraw all the money from their scheme, with 25pc as a potentially tax-free lump sum. Alternatively, they can withdraw it in chunks with 25pc tax-free and the remainder taxed at their marginal rate.
